Research Engineer (Innovation Lab)

Consumer Reports - Yonkers, NY

WHO WE ARE: CR is recruiting engineers, public interest technologists, and entrepreneurs to develop innovative new ways of serving consumers. You’ll be joining a lean team that works openly and builds out the earliest, most experimental part of CR’s innovation pipeline.

Research engineers pursue novel technological solutions to CR’s business problems, producing ideas and prototypes for revenue-generating products and services, as well as scientific publications and disruptive, attention-getting projects in an effort to raise CR’s profile as a technology leader. Research engineers are T-shaped people: broad computer science and engineering generalists who also possess deep expertise in a specific domain.
THE OPPORTUNITY: You’ll create and ship technologies that have a real impact on the marketplace, the law, and people’s lives. CR's work includes solutions to help consumers secure their digital devices, help them take back control of their data, make it easier to buy locally and save money, and more.

*
Responsibilities: *

  • Contribute engineering and creative problem solving as part of a small research group
  • Take ownership of programming work units from planning through delivery (e.g., improving source layouts, implementing new features, fixing bugs, designing UIs, benchmarking and developing optimization strategies, etc.)
  • Write clean, merge-friendly code, coherent docs, and good tests
  • Quickly master new computer science and math concepts as required.
  • Stay up to date on the academic literature, conduct self-directed study to help advance our research frontiers

ABOUT YOU: Minimum Qualifications:

  • Bachelors degree in related field w/4 yrs relevant work experience (may be substituted for equivalent combination of work experience and education)
  • A demonstrated curiosity for solving challenging and non-straightforward computer science problems; this might be reflected in a prior research engineering position, contributions to open source projects, self-directed programming projects, or something you'll surprise us with
  • Rigorous understanding of at least one technical aspect of distributed systems and the peer-to-peer networking stack; this could be applied cryptography, distributed hash tables, NAT traversal methods, state machine replication, CRDTs, byzantine consensus, the TCP/IP protocols, etc.
  • Swiss army knife of engineering skills: JavaScript fluency is mandatory - both backend (Node.js) and frontend (React, Electron); we write testbeds in Python and use video game frameworks like Phaser to visualize network activity - you should be able to contribute across all of these areas.
  • Evidence of rigorous thinking and strong communication skills across various layers of abstraction: Can you articulate the behavior of a nondeterministic bug and also articulate a vision for improving the Internet?
  • A passion for decentralized problem solving: Believe in the wisdom of the crowd, and the superiority of complex systems over institutional gatekeepers

THIS POSITION REQUIRES YOU TO BE FULLY VACCINATED PRIOR TO YOUR START DATE
