Full Stack Research Software Engineer

The CUSP NYU Data Facility has been established to support the empirical study of cities in conjunction with New York based researchers, agencies, and citizens.  It uses modern approaches to reduce the multiple technical, legal, bureaucratic, capacity, and cost barriers to access so that the full research and policy benefits can be realized.  The facility has two goals: (i) ensure that new and existing urban data are made available to and used by current and future members of the research community in a state of the art facility, and (ii) staff in government agencies and local citizens are engaged by the ability to use the facility to addressing important urban problems.

The Research Software Engineer (RSE) will work on the Data Facility’s Software Engineering team on development and operations of the Data Facility Platform to ensure that students, researchers, and agency users are best able to utilize the Facility’s services and that the Facility is optimally designed for their access and analytics needs.  The RSE will work to support the development of in-house and supported applications and scripts, in order to implement new features or automate current workflows.

The successful candidate will thrive in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial work environment and be passionate about the role of the Data Facility in enhancing the data analytics capacity of  government agencies in general and New York agencies in particular.
