    Position Overview: The technical engine behind our work is ITEP’s Microsimulation Tax Model. Developed in 1996, the model computes the revenue yield and incidence of federal, state and local taxes, including both current tax law and proposed tax law changes. The model is unique in its ability to produce analysis at the federal and state levels and to analyze income, consumption and property taxes.

Completion of this project will set up ITEP’s tax model in a sustainable web-based environment, preserving our current model’s functionality and generating sufficient flexibility for longer-term development of content and user-driven enhancements.

    Beyond the platform migration, ongoing responsibilities include timely problem-solving to adapt the platform to respond to frequent tax policy proposals and changes, improving the efficiency of the platform to make users more productive, collaborating with our senior economist to integrate updated data, and developing a lengthy product roadmap (including external facing products that make our model accessible to state and national partners).

    • Interact with the software development communities, representing the high quality of engineering work at ITEP.

    • Opportunities to deepen your technical architecture skills or develop technical management skills based on your career aspirations.

    • managing Python web app development;

    • designing server-side and client-side architecture;

    • optimizing database function and management (ideally PostgreSQL);

    • using object-relational mapping (ORM).

    • Ability to manage two or more concurrent projects, working both independently as well as with a team.

    • Ability to effectively communicate with non-technical users, responding effectively to user needs.

    • Ability to write effective technical documentation.

    • In addition, other helpful (though not necessary) experience would include having worked remotely on a software development team and having developed and deployed software for governments and/or nonprofit organizations.
