Computercraft is seeking data wranglers to contribute to an exciting new initiative of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), part of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to expand tools and resources for working with genomic data. NCBI is planning a major modernization of its resources, their user interfaces, and their underlying infrastructure to support the rapidly growing collections of sequence and other data on species across the tree of life. By re-architecting these resources, NCBI aims to improve the user experience for researchers doing a wide range of work, reach more users, support more research organisms, and ultimately drive biomedical discoveries that have the potential to improve human health.
Data wranglers with collective expertise in a variety of eukaryotic organismal backgrounds will primarily perform analyses on new and refined tools to assess quality and ensure the tools meet the needs of users. The data wranglers will serve a central role between users and the development team, understanding the perspective of users and ensuring NCBI develops the interfaces and exchange of content users need with a high level of data quality.
This is a full-time position working on site at the NIH Campus in Bethesda, Maryland, but the new hire will initially telework. Currently, all Computercraft employees at NIH are teleworking full time to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Employees will return to onsite work as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.
Computercraft offers a competitive salary, an excellent benefits package, and the opportunity for a positive work-life balance with a standard 40-hour work week and the chance to work alongside a team of highly accomplished professionals.
Computercraft is an equal opportunity employer.
