Create interactive web maps with stunning visuals and functional design.
Working at Thinking Machines
Thinking Machines is a technology consultancy building AI & data platforms to solve high impact problems for our client. Our vision is for the Philippines to become a global hub for data science. To do that, we create data cultures, one organization at a time.
We’re a company made up of intellectually curious, civic-minded, forever-learning individuals. We believe that great data science products are built with care for people, and that the best way to drive inclusive innovation is to start with a diverse team.
Our field of work is incredibly dynamic, so we want to work with people who are committed to growing with us. We want to hire people who can demonstrate an ability to learn, then provide them with personalized coaching, growth opportunities, and a great working environment to get them to world-class.
As a Geospatial Web Engineer, you will be working closely with our team to develop and deliver intuitive web maps that our clients will use to interact with our data warehouse and machine learning products. It will be your job to scope out and create potential solutions based on our client’s internal and external demands — this can be in the form of assessing the feasibility, relevance, and required effort for potential solutions, making a demo or minimum viable product to showcase an initial solution, or building a feature-complete product for full-fledged solutions.
Our project teams are composed of Web Engineers, Data Engineers, Data Analysts, and Machine Learning Researchers. You will collaborate with them to ensure smooth and timely delivery of agreed-upon requirements for a project. Alongside building our web maps, you may also be involved in designing, creating and maintaining both its frontend and backend components. If you have been focusing on one over the other thus far, we still encourage you to apply, but expect that you will need to train up to become a full-stack developer to be fully effective in the team.
At the end of the day, we are committed to giving our clients the best user experience when using our web app, so we highly value web engineering skills such as developing an API for accessing data, developing UI components, deploying your website, or setting up the web app configuration for a database.
As we work towards growth and expansion, the use cases of delivering high-quality and relevant web maps have grown. These can range from a map for understanding poverty levels throughout a country, a map for figuring out how COVID affects traffic congestion, a map for supporting decision making in rolling out broadband lines in a country, and many more.
We are looking for someone who meets the following profile:
Additionally, we are requiring candidates to have an internet connection speed of at least 12 mbps and a viable work from home setup, as we are now operating as a fully remote company.
Qualifications And Competencies
We are open to engineers who have strong fundamental, language-agnostic skills. You must be able to create and deploy web apps and web maps, as well as design and build APIs. We believe that great engineers do not necessarily perfectly match our tech stack in the beginning, but will be able to pick it up quickly.
