Senior Software Engineer

We have created a new system model for studying the world's economy. Our collaborative research has been utilized in applications ranging from economic policy to financial portfolio management to workforce and community development. We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer who is ready to solve some incredibly hard problems in this domain.

What you'll do

  • Ownership: Own all aspects of development including technical design, architecture, implementation, quality assurance, and deployment.
  • R&D: Thinking out side of the box, coming up with new ideas and experiments. The projects we work on do not have any known solutions; stack overflow will not have the answer.
  • Coding: In addition to being a principal contributor, you will participate in code reviews and improve coding standards.
  • Stretch: Willingness to wear several hats when called upon, such as addressing technical debt, working on data analytics problems, security and infrastructure, … to brainstorming with non-technical external teams.
  • Mentoring: Help other Leads grow a team of smart and ambitious engineers.
