At Cesium, we are building a platform for creating 3D mapping applications making innovations in industries like aerospace, construction, and urban planning; solving problems they didn’t know they had. We’re looking for an experienced JavaScript developer to help us show clients the potential of Cesium and why we’re so excited about bringing 3D geospatial technology to solve real-world problems.

What you will do:
Build demos, prototype applications, and concepts to show off our capabilities, adapting to the needs of different clients and industries by combining data from multiple sources building a customized, meaningful experience for users.
Apply Cesium’s technology to create prototype applications for new industries and customers.
Have an outsized impact on future Cesium products and potential of 3D geospatial technology by creating the first prototypes and concepts. 
Collaborate with our Communications team to increase the impact of our demos in the community.

What we are looking for:
A skilled JavaScript developer with experience building interactive web apps (Node.js, LitElement, Redux, or other JavaScript frameworks and libraries)
A continuous learner who loves to explore emerging technologies, introduce innovations, and take opportunities to learn and improve their skill set.
A clear communicator who can easily explain problems and solutions in both technical and layman terms.
Ability to work in a fast-paced environment and juggle multiple high-profile projects with competing deadlines.
It’s a bonus to have familiarity with command-line tools and experience with 3D graphics, game development, or WebGL libraries.
While not required, experience building or using geospatial software or GIS, like GDAL and QGIS is also a plus.

What is important to us:
You love to learn. We’re constantly evolving our platform, pushing into new industries, and striving to improve our personal toolboxes.
You get excited about experimenting and iterating based on what you learn.
You love to bring new ideas to the table that can improve our demos, content, and marketing materials.
You can work independently and iterate over your work based on feedback.
You’re excited by the potential of what we’re building at Cesium and of 3D geospatial, and you want to help us push the limits of what our technology and the entire field can do.
You want to work at a fast-growing startup, to wear many hats, and grow with us.
You want to share your knowledge. We encourage contributions to the blog, presenting at conferences, and engaging with the community.
