Ustwo is searching for a contract design technologist with extensive browser-based data visualization experience. You will be coming onboard to work on a product that is based entirely around data and data exploration. It’s an exciting opportunity to apply cutting-edge data visualization in a real-world scenario. This freelance role will start ASAP until 2nd July.
ustwo are a global studio committed to making a measurable positive impact both on people's everyday lives. We’re renowned for crafting amazing digital experiences - to do this, we work across the entire product lifecycle; from visioning and discovery, validating propositions through to launching products and services that are valuable to both users and businesses.

We are looking for an experienced technologist who can hit the ground running and work with our designers, strategists and engineers to help explore the ‘art of the possible’ as well as creating future-facing technology explorations.
The ask is broken down into two primary tasks. First, to help the team create stunning visuals and explore the boundaries of an existing frontend library (Highcharts). Second, to identify opportunity areas for other frontend technologies / libraries, and create proof of concept visualizations using those frameworks. All of this will be done using real data.
You are :
Detail-obsessed, open-minded and excited to work with designers and other technologists.
Experienced both in building production-quality code as well as rapid prototyping and creating POCs.
Experienced working with production data from live APIs for front-end visualization of business and/or scientific data.
Experience and Expectations
We would expect you to have a minimum* of 4-5 years professional development experience and a portfolio of representative front-end work.
You have the experience to quickly process business requirements and input from designers, create tangible output, and iterate rapidly.
