وصف الوظيفة

Are you looking to be part of an initiative that will inspire millions to enact positive change in their lives? Are you excited to bring your programming skills to a highly talented team of engineers, researchers, and many more?

Led by Penn professors Angela Duckworth and Katherine Milkman, "Behavior Change for Good" unites leaders in the social sciences, medicine, computer science, and neuroscience, making this the greatest interdisciplinary effort in history to change behavior for good. We are developing an interactive digital platform to improve daily decisions about health, education, and savings. To this end, we are looking for a full-stack software engineer to support development and execution of the platform. Working collaboratively with research and development teams, you will develop and modify procedures to solve complex problems; be responsible for program design, development, testing, debugging, maintenance, and documentation; and maintain full knowledge of all phases of systems development methodology and strategies, while adhering to departmental technical, quality assurance, ethics and IT security standards.

In the United States today, 40% of premature deaths are caused by behaviors that could be changed, one in three families has no retirement savings at all, and half of college students drop out before earning a degree. Behavioral science has the potential to radically change all of these outcomes—and more. If this prospect excites you, we want to hear from you!
