Consumer Reports (CR) is seeking a Research Engineer to develop new tools that grow consumers’ power, privacy, and access to informed choices. You will roll up your sleeves to build prototypes, conduct technology assessments, and take ownership of other time-bound tasks to advance CR’s overall innovation strategy. You will also have the opportunity to publish and contribute to open source projects, and present in relevant publications and conferences to raise CR’s profile as a technology leader.
This is a role on CR’s Innovation Lab team. In this position, you’ll be reporting to the Head of Experimental Engineering.
HOW YOU’LL MAKE AN IMPACT
As Research Engineer, you’ll have an opportunity to work on some of the most pressing issues facing consumers today: How we find information. How we protect our personal data. How we get the fair treatment we deserve.
This is an opportunity to ship code that has a real impact on the marketplace and people’s lives. You will help CR nurture new technologies and solutions that advance consumers’ interests, and which can be scaled up by CR or like-minded partners. Some of your projects will inform future revenue-generating projects underwriting CR’s non-profit mission; others will help us fail faster and smarter, with valuable learnings for our peers trying to build a better marketplace. All of your projects will be guided by the mission of making the marketplace better for everyone.
