About that name.
μετά + τόπος
meta + topos
Stemming from two Greek works – meta means “beyond” and topos means “place” – Metopio was built to help you go beyond your current understanding of a place and those who live there.
We want you to discover deep insights and plan meaningful actions for places and populations that matter to you. 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.
Metopio is a rapidly growing analytics startup that makes it ridiculously easy to understand places and populations, discover insights, and plan meaningful actions.
Metopio’s mission is to expand data literacy and equity to encourage fact-based decision making, especially for our core clientele of people without advanced technical skills. We do this through a suite of data visualization tools that are powered by a fast, accurate, and powerful analytics engine. You can help us build this engine!
Metopio’s value is its combination of a large curated data library with a data model that guides users through nuanced relationships without overwhelming them. We believe that web platforms can provide analytics comparable to dedicated statistical software while being far easier to use. Our aim is to revolutionize data-driven decision-making by letting anyone feel like a data expert.
This is a full-time job (40 hours/week). We provide competitive compensation with equity options, benefits, and very high growth potential. We have an open, transparent 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 located in Chicago, Illinois, and remote for the time being.
