Full Stack Java Developer
Arlington, VA, USA
Salary : $85,000.00
NatureServe is seeking to hire a full stack software engineer to design and implement map-centric web applications using Java and Esri ArcGIS technologies. Candidates with Geographic Information Systems (GIS), geospatial, Drupal, or PHP development experience are strongly preferred, though we will consider all individuals that can demonstrate their ability to learn quickly.
NatureServe's software engineers work on a mixture of new and existing projects. Some of the applications we build allow scientists to collect and manage information about rare and endangered species and ecosystems. Other applications provide conservation professionals and planners with tools that analyze this data and help guide their conservation decisions. Finally, we build websites that present this information to educate the public on the natural world that surrounds them, allowing them to explore the challenges that face it and discover the ways in which they can help. Most of these projects have a very heavy focus on geospatial data. If you are not yet an expert on interactive, web-based mapping applications, this position should provide opportunities to learn!
NatureServe is not a traditional software development company. We are a non-profit primarily comprised of scientists and conservation professionals. You will join a small group of talented, dedicated software engineers that work alongside our scientists as members of agile teams. All our software engineers are fully engaged in the complete life cycle of software development, from requirements and design through implementation and testing.
