Careers at Performant

Performant Software is a small but well-established software company working in the Digital Humanities. We partner with humanities scholars, to build software tools for research and teaching, in literature, history, art, the social sciences, law, architecture, and more. We have been serving clients across the United States, Europe, and Canada since 2006.

At Performant you will collaborate with scholars on cutting edge research in the humanities, on a wide variety of projects; discovering new connections in the built environment in the Muslim world, mapping Melville’s walking itineraries in New York, London, Rome, and Paris, researching books as symbols in Renaissance art, or documenting the graves of African Americans at a neglected cemetery.
