You will help us prepare technical bids for - and then lead the design, implementation and advancement of - numerous small and large projects that deliver accurate data that's relatable and reliable. 

We mainly design, build, and manage stand-alone applications, and data tools. We work as multi-skilled agile teams, comprising domain experts, project management, UX, back end, and operations. Your team works on everything above the data API and you'll be writing lots of software too, this is at least half of your role.
