Front-End Software Developer
We are looking for a front-end software developer to join our Lab (Modi Research Group at the Earth Institute, Columbia University). We make software to make development process smarter and to bring new services (health and energy) to people that need them most (primary focus on Africa and India).
You will get to work with a dynamic team in New York, and travel to field sites in Africa and India to develop and implement solutions with clients on the ground. This is critical to our process as we do agile development heavily based on iterative user feedback.
Some projects we´re currently engaged on include:formhub.org – A mobile data collection community that is opening up the tools of data collection rapidly. SharedSolar.org – A pre-paid solar energy solution being deployed in rural Africa. Assisting the government of Nigeria to map all their clinics, schools and waterpoints (30,000+ and counting!) ChildCount.org – An SMS based approach for improving child and maternal health Network Planner – Spatial planning software used for infrastructure (electrification) planning. Currently, being used by countries across Africa. Facility-based version viewable at http://spatialplanner.org
All of these projects are open source; if you want to dig around the code, most of it is at http://github.com/modilabs
