**Opportunity at Treasury**

** **

This is an opportunity to be an “entrepreneur in residence” making a 
difference on issues that are national priorities, such as helping 
consumers make decisions about mortgages and student loans. You will help 
lead the Obama Administration’s Finance Data Initiative, an effort to 
release Federal data sets that entrepreneurs and others can use to build 
data-driven apps and tools that help consumers take control of their 
financial lives.****

* *

We are looking for candidates from a range of backgrounds, including 
technical cofounders, technology executives, policy/law experts, and other 
innovators. The role will involve a range of challenges that require 
creativity, tenacity, and passion—such as opportunities to:****

-- Contribute a first-class technology expert’s perspective to high-impact 
policy initiatives****

-- Manage technology projects that accelerate Treasury’s open data agenda 
(such as the Consumer.Data.gov <http://consumer.data.gov/> platform) 
(although we welcome policy/law experts, too)****

-- Liaise with entrepreneurs, VCs, and other innovators to encourage the 
market to innovate using our data and to solicit ideas and perspectives to 
inform our policy agenda.****
