Position/Title: Senior Front-end Web DeveloperLocation: Portland, OR

Our development team uses a wide variety of tools and languages but our typical software stack includes Python and Django on the back-end and JQuery or Sencha on the front-end. We believe in using and releasing open source software. Advanced map interaction and analysis are commonplace in our tools and web cartography and chart design can become important roles for you. Mobile devices and tablets are also becoming prevalent in our work. We strive to use standard design patterns and technology within our applications but experimentation is encouraged at Ecotrust. We are early adopters and are often taking bleeding-edge technology and applying it in new combinations and to new domains.
