The rise of big data and new technology offers a huge opportunity to address current social science questions in novel ways, as well as to pose entirely new questions that will help improve our understanding of the world. This opportunity comes with challenges too. Alongside ethical, methodological and theoretical challenges, social scientists need an array of additional tools, skills and experiences to take full advantage of this opportunity, while maintaining the integrity of the research process. Our mission is to advance the field of computational social science by equipping researchers with the skills, tools and resources they need to successfully work with big data and new technology.
We work with the research community to create tools and services that help social scientists develop their skills, work with new technology and analyze big data.
In this project we are collaborating with a select number of startups to help them bring their research grade tools to market. These tools are aimed at providing social science researchers with the ability to observe, understand and predict social phenomena through collecting, aggregating and analysing a wide set of data.
We are seeking a product manager who can support delivering these tools to market and help guide the development of these tools through engaging with researchers and help bring the insights of our users to bear in the product delivery phase.
This is an opportunity to work on something that matters, and help have a real impact in the world. We use lean and agile methods in our product discovery and delivery approach, and this will be an opportunity to work with these kinds of methodologies, as well as have influence on the tools and processes that we use.
