One of Rill’s core product mandates is to push the boundaries of databases and browsers in service of creating a new type of BI tool. That’s where you come in. We are looking for a senior UI Engineer to lead in prototyping, implementing, & improving our data-intensive interfaces, from our analytics-driven IDE (Rill Developer) to our upcoming hosted dashboard. This is a high-agency role with a lot of latitude to influence the product direction & quality, with plenty of interesting problems to solve & ample room for creativity.

What is Rill? We're a highly-opinionated BI platform that aims to be:

- conversation-fast – we make a dashboard that people will actually use, because it’s designed from the ground-up with the expectation that all inquires should run in less than 500ms. We leverage new OLAP engines in ways that enable us to create whole new classes of interactions not previously seen in analytics – and whole new design paradigms.
- code-driven – making a dashboard should follow modern software development practices & CI/CD workflows. We want to bring BI tools into the same workflow loved by developers in other parts of the industry.
- beyond easy to get started – go from data lake to dashboard in 5 minutes or less. Effortless to make, effortless to deploy.
