The Performance Platform is recruiting

Last summer we built a prototype of a tool designed to help departments make better use of their data to improve public services. In October that prototype became the first GOV.UK dashboard and by December a second dashboard had been created for the Inside Government section of GOV.UK.

Now, we need your help to take it even further.

This video describes a bit more about the performance platform.

We’ve been through a number of iterations since the initial release. We’ve tweaked the presentation of the graphs, we’ve added mobile support, and shortly we’ll be releasing a more detailed interface to show how users are engaging with content on the site. But there are bigger changes on the way.

The Performance Platform needs YOU!

Now is a really exciting time for the Performance Platform, and GDS more generally. This year, we’ll be working across government to support the teams responsible for transforming some of the most used public services in the country.

We’re growing the team, and we’ll be recruiting for a number of posts in the coming weeks. Today, we’ve published adverts for three developer roles (.doc, 74kb) and a data scientist (.doc, 71kb).

You can find details about how to apply in the links above – applications should be accompanied by a CV and a covering letter. The closing date for the developer roles is Monday 4 March, while the data scientist role closes on the 5th. Do get in touch if you have any questions about the team or the roles: matt.harrington@digital.cabinet-office.gov.uk
