At illumis you will have the opportunity to work on a rapidly growing search and data platform. As a full-stack software engineer you will be crucial in helping the team solve the challenge of building and maintaining a platform that enables our users to efficiently search across thousands of diverse sources in real-time while distilling the results into actionable data and insights via an elegant and robust user-interface. In this role, you'll take the lead in architecting and scaling our front end systems as we grow.
We started illumis with a clear problem in mind: government records are far too difficult to access. This impedes transparency, and makes it harder for people who need access to this information to do their jobs.
We build tools for transparency that help our users access public information, put it into context, and make use of it. We bat well above our weight - we're a small but rapidly-growing company with customers that include some of the largest financial institutions, media companies, political campaigns, and nonprofit organizations in the world. Our customers use our products to solve a wide range of problems – from avoiding conflicts of interest and ensuring compliance regulatory requirements, to deep-dive investigations into firms, and vetting for potential reputational risks.
Our team is a mix of engineers, open data geeks, and political researchers who are curious, hardworking, and care. Members of our team take a high degree of ownership when it comes to the work we do. We care about what we do and the people we do it with. We’re guided by a deep empathy for our customers and their needs, and we think carefully about how our users - and our world - may be affected by the decisions we make. We’re constantly aiming to drive improvements for our users, and build useful things that make our world better.
