Job Description

ship required

The strongest applicants will have a proven track record of delivering production ready decision support tools and applications employed in the field and by mission-support entities.  Frontend Java Developers play a key leadership role in multidisciplinary teams providing crucial insight on databases, modeling, business logic and object orientation, API, user interface and user experience. Developers must also model behaviors supporting the acquisition of new skills and enhanced understanding and fostering the same attitude in their colleagues in both technical and mission understanding. 

Within three to six months of joining the project, the Senior Frontend Java Developers will be expected to:

  • Lead and perform development and maintenance of end-user focused, object-oriented, data-driven analytic applications to support CBP threat analysis and targeting.
  • Develop new code, modify existing application code, conduct unit and system testing, and engage in rigorous documentation of developed and delivered application use cases, data flows, and functional operations.
  • Demonstrate a strong practical understanding of industry standard Java Application Servers technologies such as WebLogic, WebSphere, TomcatEE and/or JBoss for application delivery.
  • Demonstrate a strong practical understanding of application-relevant cargo and passenger data and databases used to support analytic application development, functionality and targeting end user (officer) operation.
  • Drive the development of CBP Common Framework-compliant UI/UX to promote clear, consistent, and simple to use interfaces for developed applications. Support building complementary job aids and tutorials for mission facing field users.
  • Actively participate in formal and informal design reviews, solution sessions, and project milestone meetings as well as contribute to project document artifacts for presentation to both technical and non-technical audiences.
  • Integrate with, and materially contribute to, project portfolio teams as a matrixed resource to provide development and issue resolution expertise in collaboration with data scientists, intelligence analysts, developers, and other participants at the direction of a project manager.

Applicants should note that while some formal training exists to support building knowledge of missions and the implementation of data-driven solutions, much of the knowledge must be gained through on-the-job training and individual initiative.  Technical knowledge is insufficient to establish credibility in this operating environment; expertise must be enhanced with rapid acquisition of mission knowledge and demonstrated commitment positive mission outcomes; therefore, we seek self-starters who are capable of independent exploration and knowledge acquisition, willing to develop informal support networks, and with an appreciation for the immense challenge of safeguarding the Nation’s borders.
