Full Time

We are sorry, but this job listing has expired.

Performant Software is a small but strongly established software company coding in a field known as digital humanities. We partner with scholars in the humanities (literature, history, art, social sciences, law, and architecture) to build software tools for research and teaching. From exploring the built environment of Muslim societies, to mapping Melville’s grand tour of Rome, our software helps scholars develop new insights and share them with the world. We have been serving clients across the United States, Europe, and Canada since 2006. 

At Performant you will see cutting edge research in the humanities and work on a wide variety of projects. Each day will bring a new challenge and a new reward as you watch projects that enrich the arts, history, and research come to life. Our clients range from those studying highly established authors such as Melville or Shakespeare, to scholars who are documenting the lost graves of African Americans at neglected historic cemeteries.
