Job Description

The Penn Wharton Budget Model (PWBM) of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania is looking for developers to work on our cutting edge suite of tools and applications.

Software Engineers build the software applications and systems critical to the group's mission of delivering data-driven economic analyses of public policy. Software Engineers work closely with Economists and Research Associates to develop large databases of economic and demographic data, population-scale computational models of economic agents, and data visualization tools that support public policy analysis. Applications developed by Software Engineers enable Economists to advise lawmakers on public policy design and educate the public on the impact of public policy proposals.

We are a small, select, highly productive team looking for coders who can work with minimal oversight, adapt to a dynamic environment and are willing to learn new things. A knowledge of or desire to learn cutting-edge technologies such as GPU computing, Mongo, and SQL is required. An interest in economics and public policy is valued.

We support key components of a high-visibility platform so be ready for deadlines and pressure. Also be ready for a great team, a great work environment, and an amazing benefits package.
