Mark Logic is looking for a Lead Front End Engineer with a balance of technical and creative skills to join our development team. We’re not simply adding another front end developer – this is a completely new role, at lead/architect level; a ground floor opportunity to lead all UI layer development as we expand our UI product portfolio.
We’re excited about the huge opportunities our new products provide to our customers (like Visa, JPMorgan, LexisNexis, JetBlue) – to actually improve transparency and enable better information management.
In this role, you’ll create a set of new products that will redefine application development in key sectors like finance, publishing, and e-government. Come revolutionize how companies run their businesses for the better!
Recently named the fourth-fastest growing information technology company in Silicon Valley, Mark Logic is a 160-person company based in San Carlos, CA, with sales and consulting offices on the east coast and in the UK.
Unlike relational database and search hybrid solutions, MarkLogic Server is uniquely able to deliver content information applications, which meet a broader range of user requirements by fully leveraging contents’ XML structure. That’s why leading businesses and government organizations rely on Mark Logic to give them the agility to quickly adapt to changing market conditions and new product requirements. It's being adopted by companies like LexisNexis for all their new products, Visa, JPMorgan, JetBlue, Oxford University Press, and hundreds of other customers from publishing to government to aerospace and finance.
We are privately held and backed by top-tier venture capital firms including Sequoia Capital. For more information, to download a trial or community version, or to read the award-winning Mark Logic CEO Blog, visit: www.marklogic.com.
