You will be working as part of a team of Data Scientists, Software Engineers and Technologists to help test, develop and deploy innovative urban tools. These tools will address a range of urban challenges and may relate to mobility, housing, planning and even air quality. As part of the Data Science team, you’ll be helping to shape the functionality of these tools in conjunction with domain experts and you’ll be responsible for bringing software engineering best practice to the design and delivery of these.

As part of our work we create many software outputs, including websites, platforms, tools that collect and combine data from different sources, tools that visualise data and tools that provide hardware-software interfaces for the collection of data from IoT devices. We will look to you to apply your engineering knowledge to help us build, test and deploy software across these domains. We’re looking for someone that likes to design software prototypes and develop ideas in collaboration with Insights Researchers, Economists, Data Scientists and Technologists – someone who’s comfortable explaining software engineering processes and best practices to non-experts and enjoys multidisciplinary collaboration.

Initially, this role will focus on a collaborative Research and Development project that helps cities and local government bodies meet their key strategic goals. You’ll be working with existing analytical tooling, data and APIs to bring the project application to life for users.

We are looking for creative and energetic individuals with a passion for making a difference. Different projects require different levels of technical support; this gives the role variety and interest, and so requires an adaptable person who enjoys collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders. Projects themselves can range from high-level feasibility studies, systems development, to physical demonstrator projects and real-world trials. Broadly, we cover typical systems engineering tasks. Modelling and simulation may also be used to support some of those activities.
