State of Place is moneyballing city-making. We are a passionate group of city-lovers who want to (use data to) help make places better and thereby make people happier, healthier, and thrive! We help cities make the case for great places by quantifying what people love about cities and tying that to economic value. Our proprietary database, algorithms, and forecasting models allow cities to objectively measure “place quality” based on 290+ street-level features, identify the best changes to attract more people, and for the first time quantify how proposed projects increase land value, rents, revenues, and quality of life. Please see www.stateofplace.co for more information.
Early this year, we received a Small Business Innovation Research Grant from the National Science Foundation, enabling us to develop and test our MVP. We had a fantastic UX/UI designer on the team who created pure awesomeness - it just now needs to be integrated into the our web-based SaaS. We are looking for a Front-End Web Developer who is motivated to continue to combine the art of design with the art of programming. Responsibilities will include translation of the UI/UX design wireframes (in Sketch) to actual code that will produce visual elements of the MVP of our web-based SaaS. The backend functionality has already been coded (in Python/Django) but it may require modification in order to fulfill the UX vision our designer created (in Sketch). Also, we have plans for additional functionality and features that would require more back-end coding; accordingly back-end development experience in Python/Django is necessary.
