Modi Research Lab: Senior Software Engineer

Posted by | November 9, 2011 | Web Pro Job Tips

Location: New York, New York

We
are looking for a skilled Sr. Software Engineer to join our Lab.   We
make software to make development process smarter and to bring new
services (health and energy) to people that need them most (primary
focus on Africa and India).

The
tools we build incorporate geospatial planning, open-data webservices,
mobile phone-based data collection and service delivery, and management
dashboards used by governments.  We are primarily a Python shop but
looking primarily for people with deep software engineering experience
and desire to tackle challenging global problems with code.

You
will get to work with a dynamic team in New York, and travel to field
sites in Africa and India to develop and implement solutions with
clients on the ground.   This is critical to our process as we do agile
development heavily based on iterative user feedback.

Some projects we’re currently engaged on include:
  • SharedSolar.org –  A pre-paid solar energy solution being deployed in rural Africa (http://sharedsolar.org)
  • Assisting the government of Nigeria to map all their clinics, schools and waterpoints (30,000+ and counting!)
  • ChildCount.org – An SMS based approach for improving child and maternal health
  • formhub.org – a mobile data collection community
  • Network
    Planner – spatial planning software used for infrastructure
    (electrification) planning.  Currently, being used by countries across
    Africa.
