Software Engineer

Are you tired of waking up early, putting on uncomfortable clothes, sitting in traffic to commute to a job where you are stuck in a cubicle farm under soul-sucking fluorescent lights, all just to work on some boring application; one that has since been micromanaged into an uninspiring mess of box checking, will ultimately make no difference in the world and will probably be replaced in 5 years?

If that is why you are checking out job ads, hoping you’ll find something interesting, then we may just have the right job for you.  

We make Crisis Track, which is a cloud based system that local governments use to manage disasters and other emergency events like search and rescue.  When there is a hurricane, forest fire, flooding or other disaster, our system is used to track the situation, collect data, and help make decisions based on analytics that we provide them.  We are changing the way that cities and counties are operating during these critical events.

We are a small team, and all typically work independently from home.  We believe in work-life balance.  If there is a hurricane approaching the US, then it is all hands on deck.  Otherwise, we believe in flexible schedules, no timesheets, and no micromanaging. We need developers to work on our mobile applications, web application and server code. We want people who are interested in learning new technologies and solving difficult problems.

Salary: If you are looking for the absolute most money that you can get, we are probably not the right fit.  There are other jobs out there that are just terrible enough to require over paying people to fill them.  However, we can offer a competitive salary for the Washington, DC area, and if you decide in a year to move to somewhere with a low cost of living, you’ll be doing very well.

Now for the obligatory requirements for what we need.

Responsibilities:

  • We seek developers with demonstrable experience in Application Development.
  • We need people who are comfortable solving new problems, innovating solutions, and adjusting to changing circumstances in Emergency Management incidents.
  • You must be creative, motivated, able to take responsibility and support the applications you create.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience.
  • Understanding of Object Oriented Programming, JSON and REST.
  • 3 years of experience with any or all of the following languages: Java, Objective-C, Swift, C#, and Javascript.

Preferred Skills and Experience:

  • Mobile Application Development - experience developing Android, iOS or Windows 10 applications
  • Web Application Development - experience with all components of Web development: Server, database, and client-side (HTML/Javascript/CSS).
  • UI - Demonstrated ability creating rich web interfaces using a modern client side framework with solid UX/UI design.  
  • Cloud - Experience with AWS and NoSQL databases.
  • Spatial Data - Knowledge of GIS or geospatial algorithms.
  • Quality - Demonstrated usage of testing patterns, quality development processes, build deployment systems. 
  • Current - Up to date with current trends and patterns for web development.
