Hiring a Technical Lead for Media Cloud

Come help us build the next generation of tools to collect and understand online media coverage about issues that matter! Our MediaCloud project is hiring a Technical Lead to shape both the concept and contribute to the hands-on development of our existing tools, and new ones. This is an amazing chance to work on software that can directly impact our understanding of public health communication and gender norms online.  Lots of big data, quantitative text analysis, and social good!

We’re looking for someone to work with us locally (here in Cambridge, MA) or remotely (the team is already scattered all over the world). It’d be helpful to have experience with:

  • managing and building-out large software architectures for storing huge amounts of text data
  • leading a team of developers and designers, and good at delegating to them
  • communicating ideas to non-technical people
  • planning large architectures involving multiple technologies and software language
