One of the fundamental concepts that makes a Smart City actually smart is better use of data at scale to transform city service delivery. On top of every kind of city infrastructure—from traffic lights, to sewers, to our vehicle fleet—there is now a new ‘data layer’ that uses sensors and connectivity to provide data that can improve services, and even shift to new services that have never previously existed. This is possible if, and only if, we invest in new approaches to our data infrastructure, architecture and analytics capability.   To champion this work and lead our data transformation, the City is seeking a founding Chief Data Officer (CDO). In this new role, the CDO will be responsible for constructing a comprehensive strategy for citywide data collection, usage and storage. They will facilitate data driven decision making by making data available across the organization and empowering city staff to use it by fostering development of data and analytics skills. The ideal candidate for this position is a rising technology leader with demonstrated success in leading data transformation at scale.   The CDO is responsible for working with City departments to develop standards for releasing data in open and accessible formats. They will work with city departments to understand their data and identify use cases where it can be used to improve city operations. In addition to growing a culture of data internally, the CDO is a primary agent for tapping into the genius of Silicon Valley and developing relationships that further our efforts to be a data-informed organization.   This is initially a 2-year time-limited position, budgeted through June 30, 2020, with the potential to make permanent ongoing based on the success of work accomplished in the first two years.
