The Center for Policing Equity is looking for a skilled Sr Software Engineer with a passion for social justice issues and racial equity. The Sr. Software Engineer will be a member of the Data-Driven Interventions (DDI) team and collaborate closely with our Data Engineer, as well as our data scientists and data managers who develop and use a codebase that audits, wrangles, and analyzes police data belonging to CPE's National Justice Database (NJD). The Sr. Software Engineer will be primarily responsible for supporting and maintaining our new custom built web application, serving automated reports to law enforcement agencies. This role is intended as a senior member of our growing engineering team.
The NJD is the first and largest collection of standardized data on police behavior in the country (e.g., vehicle stops, pedestrian stops, use of force, complaints against officers, etc.). Each police department participating in the NJD delivers data to CPE for wrangling and analysis, and then receives a report and recommendations with the ultimate goal of reducing bias and increasing procedural justice and police legitimacy in the community.
