IDinsight is hiring a front end engineer to grow our software engineering capabilities. In this role the front end engineer will work closely with IDinsight’s Data on Demand team to develop our in-house software product aimed at improving management of our primary data collection activities across India. The front end engineer will work with a growing team of data engineers and data scientists to design and build out the front end web interfaces for the application using React.
About Data on Demand
Data on Demand (DoD) intends to amplify social sector impact worldwide by making accurate data on hard-to-reach, low-income populations an order of magnitude faster and cheaper. Our platform represents over 60 million people in India and we hope to expand our operations to more geographies.
Traditionally, high-quality data collection approaches are expensive and slow for policymakers and program implementers, while more immediate data sources like MIS data are often highly unreliable. Data on Demand combines rigorous academic methods, cutting edge technological innovations and strong field networks to revolutionize data collection.
The software that powers Data on Demand aims to advance DoD’s broader goals by enabling seamless and scalable management of our remote workforce of surveyors.

IDinsight’s entrepreneurial culture allows roles and career progression to be tailored to individual strengths, interests, and goals.
