Technology Strategy and Development

I am a full-stack engineer at Impact Observatory, a company that provides AI algorithms and on-demand data for sustainability and environmental insights. I am most proud of the work I’ve done optimizing the IO Navigator, which makes geospatial analysis accessible for governments, non-profits, and industries.

Previously, I ran Spacedog.xyz, a multidimensional digital agency for organizations on a mission. I worked on projects across the world and building tools that reflect our values of openness, social justice, and appropriate technology.

Before that, I was Director of Product at VoteAmerica, and Director of Technology at the Citizen Engagement Lab.

During my graduate education I was a researcher at the MIT Media Lab Center for Civic Media. An archive of my graduate portfolio is available at jlev.media.mit.edu, and my contributions to the open source world are on GitHub.
