We are looking for a Software Application Developer and Research Specialist to help us fulfill our mission to ensure a data and information legacy that promotes continual scientific discovery and public awareness of the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem. Our team includes scientific researchers, data specialists, and computer system engineers who support the development of a data management system to store, share, and distribute scientific datasets generated by Gulf of Mexico researchers.

SOFTWARE APPLICATIONS DEVELOPER II
We are developing a free, open-source software solution to promote open data and open science. We use an Agile-based process to maintain and improve an operational system.

The software applications developer will join a team that develops, tests, and documents web-based applications. Our software is developed using PHP with Symfony and Drupal. We use Atlassian tools to organize, document, and track our development processes.

Working closely with team members you will track progress through an issue tracking system to ensure timely delivery of software products. As the GRIIDC system is operational, you will also address software bugs by investigating issues and developing solutions to make sure the operational system is maintained. Your technical expertise will be used to provide guidance and advice to the administrative team and to collaboratively solve problems with the software engineering team.
