Data Visualization Engineer

Website Glean

Fast data exploration for data teams, for everyone

About Glean:
Glean is building the most intuitive way for teams to visualize data and make it interactive.

We are a well-funded, ambitious Seed-stage New York City startup backed by top-tier product and data investors. Our team has experience as early employees of successful startups and in big tech. We have early product-market fit and a growing list of paying customers, and we’re looking to build a diverse and thriving team. And we might be a great fit for the next step in your career if you’re excited about having a lot of ownership over your work, learning from early-stage customers and investors, building a world-class engineering culture, and holding a lot of equity in a fast-growing startup.

We’re very excited to have an office in SoHo, NYC!  COVID vaccination is currently required to interview or work on-site, and we’re leaning into meeting in person as much as possible when it’s safe. We do have a couple remote team members, but we’re especially excited about building an office-first culture with people who love collaborating in person – with lots of flexibility to work from home as needed.

The role:

Our first visualization engineer will own the development of our charting libraries and infrastructure. Your mission will be to turn our customer’s data into useful, intuitive visualizations. Our interface is highly interactive – you’ll help us design the interactions that allow users to intuitively get context and insights from their data. Visualization is core to our approach and your work will be front and center in the product.

We’re an early team so we’re still establishing large parts of our software stack – you will have major ownership over the product and you’ll help us pick the right technologies. We have a culture of autonomy and ownership and want engineers who are excited to drive their work. As an early employee you’ll help us craft our culture and will be aware of (and can participate in) customer development and goto market.

About you:

  • You have a deep knowledge of javascript/typescript and data visualization. Specifically data manipulation and data processing, mastery of the DOM and D3 (or other low-level charting libraries).
  • You have experience with React and application state management.
  • You have a strong sense for visual design and visualization best practices.


  • You have familiarity with or an interest to learn web assembly.


Depending on level of experience and preferred trade-off between salary and equity, base salary can range from 120 – 200k, with an equity grant of 0.2 – 1% of Glean.
