Join the team behind the big idea.

The Noun Project is a highly collaborative place where the world's visual language is shared and created. We are used and loved by a huge community of designers, creatives, educators, Fortune 500 companies as well as great organizations like Wikipedia, The New York Times, and the United Nations. There’s a lot of great work to be done in simplifying and organizing visual communication, and to realize it, we’re looking for talented people to join our crew.

Our mission is to create, share and celebrate the world’s visual language. Humans have been using symbols to communicate for over 17,000 years because symbols have the power to transcend cultural and language boundaries - they are the one language everyone can understand. For the first time ever, this language is being combined with technology to create a social language that unites the world.

Developers & Engineers: Help build the platform that bridges communication gaps in the world

We’re looking for a life learner with a proven background in modern frameworks, fluency in infrastructure and system administration, and an understanding of external APIs. You should have a few years of hard work under your belt, and be ready and knowledgeable about how to scale complex web applications, stabilize systems for high traffic, and lead a small interdisciplinary team of talented self-starters.

We enjoy working with people who are both imaginative and disciplined in their work, who see challenges as opportunities, and are great communicators and clean coders. We value creativity, innovation and an interest in building the platform that will empower the world’s visual language for generations to come. Our current technology stack includes Python, Django, Redis, nginx, gunicorn, HTML5, CSS3 and javascript, but we’re open to playing with new things to find the best solution possible.

Although our teams are located in Chicago and Los Angeles, we’d prefer an engineer willing to work with our team in Chicago for at least a year.
