Headquarters: Chicago, IL

The Role

Network Canvas is recruiting for a front-end web developer to work alongside our lead developer, development team, and academic team to facilitate the goals of our grant. Under the supervision of our lead developer, you will support the development of the Network Canvas project’s web presence, including its primary website, its documentation website, and its feedback website.

The preferred candidate will be able to commit between 20-25 hours a week, will work remotely, and will be able to follow their own work schedule to complete tasks on target so long as regular team communication is satisfactory. The use of Skype, Slack, and other various team communication platforms, will be expected.

Who We Are

Network Canvas is a grant-funded (R01DA042711) project within Northwestern University’s Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing. Our project is building an open-source framework to capture complex structural data for social, behavioural and health research purposes, developed from an existing tool that enables participants to articulate a ‘personal network’ (a set of ties, or ‘alters’, along with the relationships these ties might have to one another, and any attributes these alters may have) through a series of touch-optimised interfaces in an interview setting. Over the course of the grant, we will harden and extend the existing Network Canvas software, and create a companion application that allows researchers without significant technical knowledge to design their own interviews, collect and collate data, and export it into popular network file formats.


Our web presence is built using a combination of technologies, including static site generators, meteor (for our feedback website), documentation generators, and Ansible for managing deployment to our VPS. In addition, we have a library of React components that implement much of our design language.
