Job Details

Title: Front-End Web Application Developer - ELSYS - 1592
JobID: 1592
Location: Atlanta, GA
Description: This job is for a full-time research faculty position in the Systems Engineering Software Applications Branch (SESA) performing frontend web design and development. This position will entail working with other developers to gain working experience in architecting all aspects of web development (e.g. frontend, backend, deployment, etc.), and eventually transition into leading these teams and activities. 

This position will eventually require aspects of team/task leadership, and will be periodically customer facing. An ability to execute technically while also communicating to a non-technical audience is a must.

Our research group is predominantly focused on the creation of collaborative, browser-based tools to support large-scale data visualization and systems engineering design for complex systems.  

We are not a commercial development house, most of the development projects we do are six-month to year-long cycles developing, maintaining and augmenting both full web applications and more specialized browser-based tools for our sponsors. 

This job affords considerable intellectual freedom to solve our customer's problems within the constraints of a project.  We also strive to use open source software and tools wherever possible.
