Title: Software Engineer
Location: Arlington, VA
NatureServe's software engineers work on a mixture of new and existing projects. Some of the applications we build allow scientists to collect and manage information about rare and endangered species and ecosystems. Other applications provide conservation professionals and planners with tools that analyze this data and help guide their conservation decisions. And finally, we build websites that present this information to educate the public on the natural world that surrounds them, allowing them to explore the challenges that face it and discover the ways in which they can help. Most of these projects have a very heavy focus on geospatial data. If you are not yet an expert on interactive, online maps, this position should provide opportunities to learn!
