The Center for Open Science (COS) is looking for an experienced senior software engineer to advance our mission of increasing the openness, integrity, and reproducibility of scientific research. We’re looking for someone to help us build new backend data models and API endpoints to feed a user-facing SPA, and to identify bottlenecks and optimize database throughput, code speed, and infrastructure reliability. The perfect candidate for this role has worked in the commercial software space for a while but would now like to use their engineering skill to positively impact the world. We are more interested in your communication skills, passion, and ability than we are in the specific technologies that you use. A great developer will be a great developer in any language.
Founded in 2013, COS is a non-profit organization that has pushed for meaningful change in the scientific community. We've initiated large-scale reproducibility studies, challenged the incentive models of science publication, and built the premier online framework
for ensuring that science is open and available. All of our software is free and open source
, and we want to apply the same principles to science.
