The Johego Team

About Johego:

Johego is a nonprofit tech startup that develops software for social workers, police officers, nurses, and other public servants to help them connect people in need with essential services: overnight shelter, medical assistance, mental health treatment, and more. For decades, public service professionals have relied on word-of-mouth recommendations, paper directories, and hours upon hours of Googling to make such connections, resulting in inefficient and, in some cases, ineffective care. Johego is using cutting edge data science, multiplatform software development, and grassroots community organizing to make this problem obsolete.

Johego is interested in expanding our team to include the following positions: (1) data engineer / backend developer and (2) frontend developer / product designer. We prefer applicants currently based out of, or willing to relocate to, St. Louis, MO. Basic qualifications for each of these positions include the following:

  • BS degree in computer science (or similar technical field of study), or equivalent practical experience.
  • Software development experience with one or more general purpose programming languages, including but not limited to: C, Go, Java, JavaScript, Python.
  • Interest and ability to learn other coding languages as needed.
  • Working proficiency and communication skills in verbal and written English.
    • Johego provides a competitive benefits package and is an equal opportunity employer.
