R&D Infrastructure Technical Lead
AERDF seeks to develop a modernized education research infrastructure that allows for inclusive design, consent, data storage, sharing, analysis and reporting on a range of learning research problems. The first use-case is to support 11 R&D teams in the research collective, EF+Math, but there is also the need for extensibility to additional research programs.
The technology and concomitant playbooks/processes will dramatically improve the trust, inclusion, data privacy, data security and utility of education research. The Infrastructure Technical Lead will be a key member of the enterprise team, responsible for coordinating and managing a working group of strategists and a technical team of cloud architects, as well as interfacing with AERDF leadership, Principal Investigators and technical staff from research teams and school districts. You will translate research and education team requirements into technical specifications, designing processes for working with sensitive data. You will report to the Lead Program Director of AERDF, Melina Uncapher. You will have the ability to work remotely from anywhere in the U.S., though if you are based in the Bay Area, you will be able to work from our office in Oakland, CA when it is safe to do so. This role is for a one year contract with the potential opportunity for an extension based on the needs of the agile organization.
