Why join Great Expectations?  


Glad you asked!  We offer…


  • A world class team, with deep roots in open source, cutting-edge software and data development backed by some of the best open source and data infrastructure investors in the industry: Index, CRV, and Root Ventures. We are actively cultivating a new cultural blend of excellent data engineering and AI-enabled technical workflows.

  • A fast-growing company with lots of opportunity for learning and personal growth.

  • A front-row seat to the rapid evolution of data science and engineering. Data work is going through a renaissance, and—as the leading provider of a key piece in the new technology ecosystem—Great Expectations is right in the middle of it.

  • A kind, curious, and open-minded company culture. We are always seeking ways to improve ourselves and our processes; we keep these conversations open to the whole team. We prioritize empowering our team members rather than a command and control hierarchy.

  • A distributed team with lots of flexibility around timing and individual work preferences. We currently have teammates in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Washington. We’d love to add your state.

  • And of course, competitive compensation (base salary + equity package) with available Medical, Dental, Vision & 401K with 5% employer match.

Job requirements

  • Minimum three (3) years work experience as a frontend engineer, including significant experience working on a highly-interactive, developer-centric web application. More experienced candidates are also welcome to apply.

  • Extensive experience using React; experience using a UI component library with state management and data visualization. Experience with Typescript, JSX, and Redux preferred.

  • HTML5/CSS3 experience, including concepts such as layout, cross-browser compatibility, and accessibility.

  • Significant experience with presenting data, including charting and other data visualization tools.

  • Experience with both Responsive and Adaptive Web Design.

  • Experience with common front-end development tools such as Babel, Webpack, NPM, yarn, etc.

  • Experience using testing libraries/frameworks such as Cypress, Jest, Mocha, Chai, and Jasmine.

  • Demonstrated ability to estimate timelines, prioritize tasks, set and meet deadlines, and collaborate with a broader team. A deep passion for both code and creativity.

  • Familiarity in Figma, Photoshop, or similar design tools.

  • Strong preference for an engineer with a UX or design background.


Strong candidates for this role will have experience designing and/or building intuitive interfaces for user input and configuration.


Great engineering is more than just technical proficiency. We expect everyone to bring good ideas and habits, so that they can contribute to a collective culture of best practices. The best candidate will:


  • Have experience with TypesScript and Apollo/GraphQL. Any experience with python is an even more added bonus.

  • Have data in your blood. The more curiosity you have about a wide variety of data from all walks of life, the better.

  • Have technology in your heart, and a passion for continuous learning.

  • Communicate well—in writing, in person, and on Slack.

  • Commit to a culture of transparency, cooperation, and mutual support in the context of an entirely distributed team.


If you don’t think you meet all of the criteria but are still interested in the job, please apply. Nobody checks every box - we’re looking for candidates that are particularly strong in a few areas, and have some interest and capabilities in others.
