The Geomatics and Cartographic Research Centre (GCRC) at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada is looking for a software developer interested in working in an academic environment on funded projects related to mapping and visualization of stories and knowledge. The GCRC has numerous projects across a variety of disciplines but retains a special focus on the needs of people who have not typically seen their stories reflected on maps and in data visualizations. These include Indigenous communities, refugees, homeless, and victims of abuse. The selected candidate will work in a very stimulating environment under the guidance of a senior software developer, a systems architect, and in collaboration with research teams recognized world-wide for their groundbreaking work.
Strong personal skills and empathy required. Attention to detail and long term foresight are also very important to our processes.
As far as software development skills, this is what we work with:
Markup: HTML, CSS
Version control: Git (Github), Subversion
No-SQL databases: CouchDB
SQL databases: Postgresql w/PostGIS
Build: Maven, Ant, Gradle
Interfaces: REST, web services, misc
