A day in the life of a Front-End Engineer at Vizzuality 

We're looking for a developer who will work with a world-class, super-talented team of engineers, designers, scientists, and project managers. Someone passionate about using their creativity and technical skills to make a difference in people's lives, to the environment, and the world.


  • You will design and develop cross-functional, multi-platform user interfaces to visualize, interact with, and manage large amounts of data in the cloud, often in real time, ensuring their usability, accessibility, responsiveness, and scalability.
  • Working hands-on across our stack is one of the primary tasks engineers perform at Vizzuality. 
  • Our core stacks are ReactJS/Redux. You will work on JS/TypeScript projects and experiment with new technologies. If you hit a snag or need to learn a new skill, our supportive team is always there to lend a hand and help you conquer any challenge.
  • You will take the lead and meet with clients at different stages of the development process to help define requirements and propose solutions and alternatives.
  • You will spend a significant amount of your time liaising with data scientists, back-end engineers, project managers, and designers to find novel and creative technical solutions that solve specific client/project needs and integrate disparate technologies such as web mapping, data visualization, responsive design, interactive interfaces, one-page apps, and data management via Rest and Graph APIs.
  • You will also communicate with users, colleagues, leading scientists, and decision-makers to collect requirements, describe features and technical designs, and define product strategy.
  • Lastly, as an Engineer at Vizzuality, you will ensure software quality, robustness, and compliance with standards by reviewing code, documenting, and creating automated tests.


These are some things you will do and achieve in your first year at Vizzuality.


In your first month:

  • You’ll learn about all the projects and the stack we use in each of them.
  • You’ll familiarize yourself with much of the lifecycle of a project.
  • You’ll have time to learn the various software systems we use for managing people, tasks, and projects and contribute to project meetings.
  • You’ll start to get to know people from other functional areas: design, science, back-end, and business development. 
  • You’ll be assigned to a project and have the opportunity to start working closely with other team members and functional areas within the company.


During the first 3 months:

  • You’ll continue to get to know and collaborate with people from different functional areas, and you will better understand how our role interfaces with theirs. 
  • You will share ideas and collaborate closely with team members.
  • You will learn about the methodologies in place and have the opportunity to suggest improvements.
  • Now that you are more familiar with our project's lifecycle, you will work closely with another front-end engineer colleague in a specific project, already autonomously implementing features. 


As from month 4 and depending on your progress:

  • You will be the main developer on a given project, responsible for the design and assisting project managers with client communication when needed.
  • You will apply your experience to solve complex challenges and act proactively when identifying and communicating issues ahead of time, even when they’re not directly related to your work.
  • You will make the most of your experience by knowing when/how to prioritize the project’s goals, overall value, and maintainability over less significant implementation details.
  • You will contribute to the team’s code standardization by proposing improvements and keeping high-quality standards
  • You will act as a mentor for junior/mid-profiles
