Position Overview:

We are seeking a highly-experienced Senior Software Engineer to join our Visualization Technology group.

Your Impact

You'll be a technical leader helping to develop the core visualization and graphing functionality in WebFOCUS. In this role, you will design, implement, and enhance the JavaScript/HTML5 Chart technology which forms the backbone of IBI's visualization stack.

While your primary focus is on writing tight JavaScript to enhance the Visualization library, you take a systems approach to development, and design your work based on its implications across the full technology stack. You believe that good design is the key to good coding -- "measure twice, cut once." You write excellent-quality code (if you do say so yourself), and understand how to create unit-tests for JavaScript to ensure that regressions and bugs are minimized.


  • Collaborate with the product owner, technical lead, product designer, and other stakeholders to design, prototype and develop the visualization pipeline within WebFOCUS.
  • Maintain existing code and make improvements to increase maintainability, performance, and scalability.
  • Support software rollouts to production.
  • Constantly improve code quality and test coverage.
  • Understand full-stack dependencies to minimize regressions and attain improved designs.
  • Guide and mentor junior engineers. Serve as team lead if appropriate.


  • 5+ years of demonstrated experience in JavaScript, HTML5 and web development.
  • BS/MS degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related subject.
  • Experience with d3 or other visualization api's and frameworks a plus.
  • Familiarity with Jira, git, and agile development methodologies a plus.
  • Passion for writing well composed, testable code with a focus on readability and maintainability.
  • Python, R or other Data Science programming skills a plus.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Knowledge of modern accessibility requirements a plus.
  • Knowledge of SVG, a plus
