Full Stack Developer

Alethea Group

Washington, DC, USA Remote

Full time

Apr 12

Alethea Group is looking for a front end web developer to build Artemis -- a platform designed to stop disinformation on the web before it goes mainstream. It's a greenfield opportunity to have huge ownership and mindshare, to architect the product and choose its enabling technologies, and of course for fantastic career growth.

Much of our front end technology stack is still to be defined. We expect to use React, JS, other related technologies but you'll work with the lead front end developer, backend developers, and the VP of Engineering to pick the appropriate tech as well as lead the front end development.

Required Experience:

  • STEM-related bachelor's degree minimum, required.
  • The engineering team at Alethea Group is fully remote first and is looking for developers anywhere in the continental US.

Required Cultural Fit:

Equally important to the ability to perform the duties above, Alethea Group is especially interested in the cultural fit for our team:

  • A relentlessly positive attitude and the ability to balance work and life efficiently in order to get the job done, without sacrificing sanity. A sense of humor is a plus.
  • A roll up your sleeves attitude. This is a start-up, and no job is too small.
  • Integrity in unregulated, unchartered territory. There are very few rules governing the information space, and Alethea Group employees will be expected to demonstrate a commitment to the firm’s ethical standards.
  • A constant desire to learn and be challenged by team members of all levels. Our titles are to help our clients identify roles and responsibilities, but on our teams we should be challenging each other to think outside the box, develop creative solutions, and build something together.
  • An understanding of the political and economic systems in the United States, and how disinformation poses a threat to institutions.
  • The ability to demonstrate discretion. Our clients are sensitive. Their data is sensitive. We adhere to Fight Club’s first two rules (there are other rules too but, you get it—if you don’t get it, google it).
  • The ability to communicate directly and get the job done. We’re not a “meeting-before-the-meeting” kind of place.
  • An ability to thrive in ambiguity. Create a structure that works for you and your team. We are not micromanagers.

Compensation and Benefits 

  • Salary and stock options are negotiated based on experience. 
  • Healthcare at the gold-tier level, dental, and vision is fully funded by the employer. 50% of dependent coverage is provided by the employer.
  • Unlimited vacation and sick leave, including office closure between Christmas and New Years, and extended holidays at Thanksgiving and the 4th of July.
  • Employer sponsored 401k with a 3.5% match.
  • Remote-first role, with the ability to work anywhere in the United States. Headquarters is located in Washington, D.C.

Alethea Group welcomes talent from all backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, abilities and walks of life. We strive to create an inclusive and diverse workforce, providing a supportive environment for all employees. Kindness is one of our core values. We strongly encourage you to apply even if you don’t meet every qualification. Come as you are and learn about the exciting opportunities on our team.

Our office is remote during the COVID-19 pandemic, and will reopen once public health officials have determined it is safe to do so. At that time, staff will have the option to work from our Washington, D.C. office.

Alethea Group is an equal opportunity employer that encourages people of all backgrounds, genders, ethnicities, abilities, and sexual orientations to apply. We are committed to being an inclusive place to work, while maintaining a workforce that represents the communities we serve.
