RIPL is a non-profit tech for social impact organization founded in 2018. We help government solve some of society’s most pressing challenges using data and science. Our work has supported data-driven policy improvements in health care, education, social insurance, civic participation, workforce development, and criminal justice.
In the early days of COVID-19, we partnered with Rhode Island to build a cloud-based Pandemic Unemployment Assistance system in just 10 days, making Rhode Island the first state in the nation to pay CARES act benefits to workers and families in need, and helping over 70,000 RI workers receive their unemployment benefits. We are now expanding across the country to deliver effective ML/AI solutions to connect Americans with in-demand career and streamlined benefits.
As the Director of Technology at RIPL, you will own, develop, and manage the full technology stack underlying our products and solutions. You will work closely with the Senior Director of Research and Technology to build out the engineering team’s working practices, lead the development of our software and product portfolio, and deliver streamlined cloud solutions to our government clients. You will partner with RIPL’s research faculty and in-house experts in behavioral economics to support “nudges” and data-and-research-driven applications to innovate and deliver effective public policy programs.
RIPL’s staff are located all over the country but stay connected with online chat, regular coffee hours and in-person time when travel is possible. As an organization we value quality over quantity, and believe our government partners deserve the best. We know that changing culture and systems takes hard work, and we’re committed to that work for the long term. To learn more about what we value, please see our leadership values.
