Front End Engineer

Seattle, WA

  • Play an integral role in building and maintaining the web interfaces for a new generation of GIS software that delivers robust data and workflow management in a simple, user-friendly platform
  • Work on the complex, real-world challenges involved in modeling massive geospatial data sets
  • We’ve raised 3 rounds in 3 years and are hitting our steepest growth rate yet


At Unearth, we’re opening the world of GIS to everyone by building a modern GIS platform from scratch - one that’s powered by the latest cloud architecture optimized for mobile devices.

As a Front End Engineer at Unearth, your job is to identify overlap between visionary designs, complex APIs built on formidable datasets, and real-world requirements from busy customers who demand simplicity. No technical challenge is off the table – you might find yourself extending geospatial libraries one day, dusting off your high school trig for a challenging animation the next, and debugging a proprietary scripting language the next. If you’re looking to grow personally and professionally, Unearth will introduce you to state of the art tech and support your career growth in the fascinating world of GIS.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Work closely with designers to identify constraints, discover opportunities, and solve UX problems.
  • Collaborate with back end engineers on API contracts that optimize for a distinct mix of factors (though performance is always a priority).
  • Use your expert knowledge of JavaScript and the DOM to implement pragmatic code in a large single page application.
  • Consider the impact of your work (and the work of others) on the security of our customers’ information.
  • Provide recommendations and expertise on technical solutions and product opportunities.
  • Maintain a high quality bar while rapidly iterating on new product releases.
  • Help guide and implement Unearth’s approach to CI/CD, unit testing, debugging, and monitoring.
  • Test and optimize your code across a broad range of devices, browsers, operating systems, and screen sizes.
  • Help keep the product roadmap on track by providing estimates and prioritizing your work to deliver the best customer impact.


It's always a plus if you've had the following experiences:

  • Professional experience working on a team to deliver a single page web app
  • Deep knowledge of JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and the DOM
  • Experience with front end frameworks, build tools, and deployment pipelines
  • A knack for user experience, typography, layout, and animation
  • An ability to quickly absorb new concepts and build successful solutions on top of them


We offer great compensation, equity, performance-based stock options, and many other benefits including:

  • An amazing team and culture. Post-Covid, we offered catered lunches and fun team events like drone racing, mini golf, and wine tasting. During covid, we’ve adapted with virtual events like escape rooms and craft classes.
  • We have a new office just across the street from the Space Needle, but are also welcoming of remote team members in our time zone (PST)
  • Unlimited personal time off (PTO)
  • Medical, dental, and vision
  • Parental and sick leave
  • 401(k)
  • Transit/remote office benefit


We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.


About Unearth

Maps Meets Massive Storage 

The global infrastructure that powers humanity's transportation, basic utilities, and massive structures is managed by outdated and inefficient software solutions. Delays between data collected in the field and its analysis in the office lead to wasted resources, productivity lag, and in extreme cases, catastrophic events. 

The data collected from these assets are managed in archaic files and folders. At Unearth, we're empowering the Built World by providing the world's first map-based asset management system powerful enough to support our industries' largest players and simple enough to be customized by office workers and utilized by field workers. Unearth is disrupting the $50B GIS (Geographic Information Systems) industry by providing revolutionary tools and expanding the addressable market for map-based asset management solutions.
