Working as part of a team you will contribute to building out our CedarBox platform. CedarBox is a platform designed to support land stewardship by first nations communities in British Columbia.
Our software is used by a number of Coastal and Northern communities to manage the land use referral programs that the communities engage in. Using a combination of GIS and archeology data communities are able to review land use applications from the mining, oil and forestry sector and develop and informed position on the project. We enable communities to manage the enormous volume of data that they have collected to make the best possible decision.
We want to expand our solution to begin to take into account environmental monitoring data to support the ongoing monitoring and surveillance of these types of projects.
Duties and responsibilities
As part of our team you would work on extending our existing software platform. This will involve a combination of software development and adding test cases to the existing platform. You will have to prepare design documents and user documents for the work your do.
Knowledge and skills
Our platform is written in django/python and an understanding of django is critical. You should be family with our standing set of development tools (bitbucket, jirra, slack) and able to work in a team environment. An understanding of arcGIS is an asset but not required.
BSc in computer science. Not required but an understanding of geography or environment sciences is a positive asset.
