Front-End Development Lead (JavaScript) (Remote-friendly)

At Develop Diverse, our vision is to normalize diversity through inclusive communication, enabling companies to create inclusive cultures and increase diversity in the workplace. We provide companies with a software platform that finds potentially biased language and suggests inclusive alternatives, along with the hard data to back up these recommendations. While we currently focus primarily on job ads, we aim to extend our platform to all types of text and all communication channels, for companies and people alike. Our customers include Amazon, Vestas and Maersk Tankers.  

We are innovative and fun people who are very open-minded and strive for growth! We are also an equal opportunity employer. Not only that, but celebrating diverse voices and perspectives is how we operate, so creating an inclusive workplace is our number one priority.
