We’re hiring a Frontend Engineer who specializes in building User Interfaces for data platforms. They will work alongside data strategists, public policy researchers and other stakeholders to develop platforms that help citizens participate and engage in discussions and assist policy-makers and researchers in working with public datasets.
As a team we’re moderately federated and our work is defined by the sectors we operate in. Public Finance, Law & Justice and Urban Local governance are a few sectors where we’re actively engaging with our collaborators. The outputs, outcomes and future opportunities are always as per the needs, requirements, partnerships and opportunities available at a sector level.
This structure also helps us find, share and validate our ideas across sectors. A good example here is the Open Budgets India platform, which we created to curate all important public finance data at one place. Our learnings here help us in creating the Justice Hub, which is a collaborative data platform for curating legal datasets.
