Urban design & planning decision-making and communication tool for citymaking
UI/UX/Front-End Developer InternNo salary
Us: A lean-startup-devotee, data-geeky, digital-nomadic, passionate group of city-lovers with a mission to use data to make places more livable, equitable, and sustainable so that people are happier, healthier, and can thrive! More here: www.stateofplace.co
You: An empathetic, eager-to-learn, data-driven/research/product development enthusiast, who is looking to get a taste of the startup rollercoaster, ready to assist us in our software and product development efforts to help us scale the business using AI/visual machine learning/data analytics. You want to love life while working with a dynamic group of just plain-good people working to make the world (at least slightly) better!
Primary Job Requirements:
- User research, information architecture, wireframing, and prototyping
- Experience designing and laying out web pages using CSS and modern supporting libraries.
- Experience using React compatible CSS styling libraries like react-bootstrap, style-components, etc. a plus.
The Skinny: State of Place can be traced back to 2003, when our Founder/CEO, Mariela, accidentally became a data-geek while creating a tool to objectively measure the built environment characteristics that impact the way people feel about their cities. She soon embraced this new-found title, and began her consulting company, realizing that quantifying what made for good urban design - and calculating its tangible value - was actually the key to convincing people to make cities better (and thereby improve people's lives). Fast forward 15 years later, five years after first offering State of Place as a consulting product, we were awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation's Small Business Innovation Research program that funded the MVP (first saleable version) of our software. Two years later, we have worked with nearly 30 customers in the US and Europe and counting!

- Other skill-development opportunities associated with the job include dev-ops work, API interaction with servers, backend python work, and machine learning.
What you get: This is an unpaid internship, but you'll get a ton of on-the-job training (you'd be mentored by our Founder/CEO, CTO, and Machine Learning Scientist), enjoy flexible working hours, and gain invaluable experience working with an innovative, fast-paced startup. We also encourage interns to develop a professional development project that they can use to demonstrate improving a skill set or a deliverable/example of professional growth during the internship.
15-40 hours per week; min. 4 month commitment
Remote (work anywhere with internet access) but preference for those based in North America and Europe (and time zones that line up with them)
Join us in disrupting the urban planning and real estate industries - replacing the top-down, opinion-based, expert-driven approach accessible to a few with a data-driven, evidence-based one, accessible to the many!
We hope you're as stoked as we are to meet you/us! Attach your resume/CV with a cover letter in your Angel List application. If you have any questions, shoot them over to email@example.com.
