About Us

Our mission

We've set out to help anyone and everyone feel like a data expert.

Simply put, better decisions can be made with better data. That’s why we make tools that make it simple to curate, analyze, and visualize data.

With Metopio, you can find data on any place and population, put it into context, and then visualize the findings in ways just about anyone can understand.

About that name

μετά + τόπος
meta + topos
beyond + place

Like its name–stemming from two Greek words–Metopio helps you go beyond your current understanding of a place and those who live there.

We built Metopio to illustrate the complexity around us, liberate data that is currently stuck in spreadsheets and tell stories through easy visualizations and powerful analytics that require no prior training.

Discover deep insights and plan meaningful actions for places and populations that matter to you and your organization.

Metopio is a rapidly growing analytics startup that makes it ridiculously easy to understand places and populations, discover insights, and plan meaningful actions.

Current Roles available - Front-End Developer

Frontend Developer

One of Metopio’s core promises to our customers is that we make it intuitive and easy to visualize data. That could be you!

We are a rapidly growing analytics startup that makes it ridiculously easy to explore places around the country, discover insights, and plan meaningful actions. Our platform lets users ask a question like “How does Chattanooga, Tennessee stand out in terms of health outcomes?” and get a detailed response with infographics (“It ranks poorly in cardiovascular and respiratory health”). Users can then visualize the data in maps, charts, and scatterplots.

Metopio’s value is embedded in its clean, easy-to-use frontend that puts data at our users’ fingertips without overwhelming them. We prioritize ease-of-use and believe that web platforms can provide analytics comparable to dedicated statistical software. Our aim is to revolutionize data-driven decision-making by letting anyone feel like a data expert.

Core Responsibilities

We are looking for an enterprising Front-end Developer to work on all aspects of our interface. You will be in a high-visibility position integral to Metopio’s success, reporting directly to the Product Lead, and responsible for:

  • Improving the usability and clarity of our front-end interface
  • Helping to migrate our front-end to Vue 3.0
  • Maintaining and improving our visualization engines (charts, maps, tables, scatterplots)
  • Using Metopio’s API to build new pages and visualizations as needed
  • Maintaining top-notch usability on mobile devices
  • Interfacing with back-end engineers to provide views and tools they need
  • Participating in discussions about future directions for the platform
  • Any other responsibilities that arise as we grow this role with you

Skill Requirements

As a growing startup, we are in the process of cleanly separating our codebase (front-end, back-end, API, data processing) to enable more modular development. Therefore, our primary need is for someone who is able to take the lead when building or integrating features, and excited to work on a platform under construction.

You also need:

  • An excellent command of Javascript (required)
  • An excellent command of reactive programming (required; we use Vue)
  • Experience working with open-source libraries (required)
  • Comfortable around data
  • Understanding of statistics (to roughly an AP Stats level; optional)
  • Experience building data visualizations in Javascript (optional)
  • Familiarity with Python (optional)

We are a small startup with flexible priorities and roles. Based on our needs and your interest, this role may grow to include:

  • User interface design (UI)
  • User experience design (UX)
  • Speaking with clients to collect feedback and understand how our interface can better meet their needs

How We Code

We value documented, maintainable code with clear APIs, and our entire front-end has recently been refactored with these aims. Our visualizations use open-source libraries like Leaflet and d3.js, and you will also use Bootstrap and Vue. As you might have heard, we place a high value on ease of use, which means every error state must be captured and explained to the user, every piece of functionality must be self-explanatory, and our interface should draw from widely-used standards such as Material Design.  Your first tasks may include:

  • Migrating our front-end to Vue 3.0
  • Helping implement a UI/UX refresh of the site
  • Building out a Reports module
  • Implementing build process improvements
  • Expanding self-service data management tools

Details

This is a full-time job (40 hours/week). We provide competitive compensation with equity options and very high growth potential. We have an open culture that esteems diversity of background and mindset, and you will be a core part of the team. You will be working on a codebase that has grown organically over several years, so there will be a lengthy period of hands-on training. This position is 100% remote for the time being, but you must reside in the United States.
