Looking for a job in Bristol that mixes technology, data, sensors and working with communities? Knowle West Media Centre is looking to recruit a Citizen Sensing Coordinator to support people to harness the power of sensing technologies and data for the common good.
The Coordinator will play a key role in delivering an exciting and challenging programme of work using The Bristol Approach to Citizen Sensing – a framework that puts communities and their needs at the heart of innovation.
‘Citizen Sensing’ is a process where people build, use, or act as sensors – for example, identifying and gathering information (data) that will help them to tackle an issue that’s important to them. This sensing process could involve creating a bespoke sensor from scratch or using a piece of technology that already has an in-built sensor, like a smartphone. However simple or complex the technology, and whatever the data being gathered, citizen sensing is about empowering and enabling people to use technology for social good.
The Citizen Sensing Coordinator should have enthusiasm for and excellent knowledge of building and prototyping sensors and IoT (Internet of Things) devices and a good understanding of data collection.
37 hours a week for 10 months – fixed term contract
