The Unidata Program Center is hiring! We are looking for a scientific software developer to join our team as a technical lead in creating and maintaining software and data services to support the geosciences.
As part of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) in Boulder, CO, Unidata offers competitive salaries and great benefits. UCAR was selected as one of the Best Companies to Work For in Colorado. Simply put, Unidata is a great place to work. Unidata's team environment provides high levels of autonomy and responsibility with great opportunity to excel individually and contribute to the team's success.
We are looking for a lead software developer to help us help our community of scientists access the Earth system science data that fuels their research. You'll collaborate with other Unidata developers to test, support, maintain, and develop Unidata software products and real-time data streams. You will work closely with end-users and other Unidata developers to identify community needs for software and data, and participate in Unidata’s efforts to meet those needs. This position will focus on development of and support for the AWIPS package.
As technical lead for the Unidata AWIPS project, you'll work closely with NOAA/NCEP, NOAA/NWS, Raytheon, and the broader community to understand and specify Unidata community needs. You'll collaborate with Unidata management and other Unidata developers to evaluate the state of the AWIPS project, determine next steps, and communicate this information to Unidata’s governing committees and the broader Unidata community.
In addition, you'll work to improve and simplify the Unidata AWIPS distribution and the installation process for use by the Unidata community, and contribute to Unidata’s efforts to support the deployment of AWIPS in other countries and national weather services. Alongside Unidata developers and community members, you'll identify ways that AWIPS can be modified to improve usability by University educators and researchers, working with the NOAA AWIPS development team to document issues and consider solutions that can be contributed back to the AWIPS codebase.
