ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System) is a long-term European research infrastructure providing scientific data on carbon cycle and greenhouse gas budget. ICOS Carbon Portal, hosted by Lund University (Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Sciences), is an organization designing and building web services for archival and dissemination of these data, including upload, storage, long-term preservation, search, visualization, and download. The Carbon Portal is a small team of in total 12 scientists and developers.

software developer copyWe are looking for a programmer to complement and enhance our team. This person will develop applications for back-end and front-end systems that provide the services of the Carbon Portal. You will work in a small team with 4 other programmers. The position will be permanent with a 6 month probation period.

You have a professional or academic degree and preferably several years of programming experience. Experience in the following list of relevant technologies, skills and tools is recommended: unit testing, modern HTML and CSS, Gulp, HTTP protocol, Bash scripting, Linux administration, public key cryptography, maps and GIS, Python, PHP, SQL, working with scientific data, binary data formats. The scope of software development tasks at Carbon Portal is rather broad. We realize it is unrealistic to expect an applicant to be a true full-stack developer. However, we are a small team and cannot afford a narrow specialization. We shall therefore evaluate the candidates based on familiarity with the relevant technologies but, more importantly, the potential to learn, interest, motivation, and the ability to deliver working code.
