Join our team!
We’re visualization enthusiasts. We’re chart connoisseurs. We’re open source developers. We’re map geeks, spreadsheet lovers, and color palette fiends. We love helping people understand the world better and we want you to join us in helping the world make sense of data.

We want to share our love of software by making programming easier to learn, by making data easier to explore and analyze, by making visualizations easier to sketch, and by helping people help each other.

Observable is built on open source, including React, Node.js, and PostgreSQL, as well as a number of our own open source libraries. We care deeply about user-centered design, from programming language and syntax design, to API construction, to the graphical user interface, to the final pass of visual polish.

We are looking for people who are compassionate advocates for data practitioners and have the audacity to tackle some of development’s greatest challenges. We are hiring for multiple positions.

Thank you for your interest! 🙏 We can’t wait to hear from you.
