Job Description:

Support the development of the NCBRE Analysis Toolset (NATs), primarily in the role as a Software/GIS Engineer. The primary work location for this position is in sunny San Diego, CA, however, the role can be worked 100% remotely.

The members of the team are multi-disciplined and are capable of helping out in more than one area. This job will focus on updating the current ESRI javascript map in NATs and expanding the NATs GIS capabilities. This also includes updating the java based code that controls map features from user interface controls. The NATs GIS/Map is the primary visual interface to the results of the NATs tools and calculation engines. The NATs GIS/Map has many features that allows the user to modify the input data to the underlying models by interacting directly with the map to create objects, move objects, and edit objects with controls from java & javascript code in the general user interface. The task will include completing the migration of the Integrated Weapons of Mass Destruction Toolkit (IWMDT) map features into NATs. The current NATs GIS/Map is primarily written in ESRI Javascript 3.x api and will be migrated up to ESRI Javascript 4.x. NATs uses a container based infrastructure using kubernetes as the container controller. The host system is primarily Linux, the current ArcGIS server is in Windows 2012 server and will be migrated to the Linux ESRI based containers, when made available to us through the CJMTK program.
