UrbanLogiq, a venture-backed startup with offices in Vancouver and New York, and graduate of the 500 Startups program, has a mission to help governments and public servants unlock the insights hidden in their data to help build better communities.

Our cloud-based platform aggregates existing disparate data sources, automates key workflows found in government, augments existing data sources with complementary and supplementary data streams, and provides analytics to give planners and engineers a more complete and thorough view of the situations they need to make decisions on. From small cities, like the City of Delta, to large cities, like the City of San Jose, to regional levels like the Province of British Columbia, our goal is to bring actionable intelligence to all levels of government regardless of size.

What You Will Do

Our product is a web-based application; intuitive and performant interactions are what give our customers joy and keep them coming back. Your background in front-end development is key to improve their experience and give them the new features they need for their work.

A core cultural value of UrbanLogiq is that we develop intimate relationships with our customers and work closely with them to solve their problems. To this end, you will be tightly involved with our users and designers as part of the implementation process.

You will know what is happening in the technology community around you and have a clear idea of which tools to apply and when. You have experience writing robust, testable, tested code.

That said, we are still a small company that values its agility, and coming together as a team to burn through a tough problem is part of our cultural values. We may need you to work outside your comfort zone, outside your area of expertise, and we understand that it may not be optimal; all we ask is that you be open to the idea and willing to pitch in.
