Local Logic: Lead Front End Developer

Local Logic

This is a Full-time position in Val-Martin, QC posted July 9, 2021.

Our missionAt Local Logic, our mission is to help make sustainable, equitable, and prosperous cities through the power of data.We started our journey at McGill University’s urban planning department, where we came to see that cities were being developed in all kinds of unsustainable ways.

Why were sprawling suburbs still being built, when doing so would increase pollution and inequality?

Why were new business parks being built far from mass transit, when doing so would make traffic congestion skyrocket?

Why was social housing being built in places that would exacerbate social problems rather than improve them?It became clear to us why cities are incredibly difficult to understand.

But we realized that with recent advances in data science, all the complexity of cities could be made simple enough for anyone to understand.

And that understanding would be essential to making the sustainable, equitable, and prosperous cities that we so desperately need.Today, Local Logic makes AI-powered software that optimizes real-estate projects for maximum affordability and minimal environmental impact, all the while generating healthy returns for the developers.

This software is powered by the billions of insights we’ve generated over the years that describe all aspects of cities from the distance to the nearest bus stop, to the quietness on a street, to the most recent trends in the housing market.To date, we’ve helped millions of people find their next home by partnering with the top real estate brands in the US & Canada.

In fall 2020, we secured a Series A funding round to grow our team, enhance our products, and ultimately, help city builders across the continent make the cities of the future.Your missionAs Local Logic’s Lead Front End Developer, you will lead the development and improvement of our next generation front end architecture using the latest technology and frameworks.
