RAND Corporation | Santa Monica - D.C. - Pittsburgh - Boston | Research Software Engineer & Data Science Engineer

We are looking for eager, creative folks who partner well with PhD level researchers to create cool prototypes of research concepts.

We are the world’s leading public policy and decision making think tank. Read more about us here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAND_Corporation or here: http://bit.ly/1ImrPH8 or here: http://rand.org

You will work on project teams of research staff and domain experts and will often be the sole software engineer on the project. Our group functions a lot like an internal software development consultancy.

For Research Software Engineer position, technical needs will vary by project so you should be a well-rounded generalist able to develop solutions in MORE THAN ONE of the following application areas: web, mobile, desktop, visualization, database, modelling & simulation, machine learning, and statistical analysis.

For Data Science Engineer position, similar to above but with your well-roundedness being more in the neighborhood of visual analytics and Hadoop/Spark/”Big Data” type skills.

Don’t be scared! You don’t have to be wizard at all these. The researchers provide the depth, you just provide the breadth, creativity, and eagerness to learn.

Good work life balance compared to startups and mainstream tech companies. 20 days of vacation per year that you are incentivized to take! Respectable salaries despite being a non-profit. Relocation package negotiable.

Hey Chris,

Great to know Rand is hiring engineers!

I have worked with consulting engineers from Labor and Population department at RAND, and have visited HQ a few years ago. It is a great place to work!

I have a few questions about the position, could I send you email for inquiry? Thanks!
