Front End Developer, Committed to Public Health and Environmental Sustainability

We think of the internet as a societal nervous system—a growing global network of awareness and intelligence that we must put to good use. Helping to transform the market requires software skills, analytical experience, business sophistication, and a genuine commitment to ethics and social responsibility. Incorporated in 2000, Green River’s team of software engineers collaborates with clients including Starbucks, the States of Delaware, Massachusetts, Virginia, and Michigan, numerous non profit organizations, and many others. Our primary offices are in scenic Brattleboro, Vt and Northampton, Ma, and we have remote staff living and working around the US.

Our projects offer challenges in developing complex scalable algorithms as well as highly designed responsive user interfaces. We’re constantly evolving our approach to software development as new best practices emerge. Together, we’ve created a collaborative atmosphere in our company—shaping together the kind of work and lifestyle we want and fostering career paths through mentorship. This has resulted in exceptionally long-term relationships with both our clients and our staff.

As the population rises, the climate changes, and critical resource thresholds are reached and exceeded, it’s becoming increasingly important for information systems to help us obtain and interpret data about people and organizations, in terms of both economic benefits and human and ecological health. This vision of the future is what drives us at Green River.
