Forestry IT

Full Stack Developer

Company/Location: Esk Mapping & GIS - Hobart, Tasmania

Job Description:

Maybe this is it. Perhaps this is the job you’ve been scrolling for. Esk Mapping & GIS have a small but wicked smart team of developers in Hobart, and we could be looking for someone like you to join us.

Who are we?

We build award winning websites and apps that have a spatial focus, and we utilise predominantly open-source tools to build them. Esk Mapping & GIS also fly drones and provide spatial / mapping services to corporate and Government clients at all levels.

Each of our existing development team members have strengths in different areas, but ultimately each of us either are or are approaching a full-stack developer, and we help each other gather momentum on that journey. In our world that means everything from CSS animations to Apache configuration, from database admin to writing Typescript, from graphic design to deployment pipelines. It’s challenging and fun.

So, who are we looking for?

We advertise the position as full-stack developer, but we know that most of the people that will apply wouldn’t be able to cover all the bases mentioned above. If you’re a genuine full-stack developer, then that’s ideal. Otherwise, if you can write web code, cover many of the above-mentioned bases and have the confidence and drive to learn a good chunk of the rest one day then you’ll likely be a competitive applicant.

Skills and Experience

The types of applications we build usually have a spatial component to them. If you have experience in Spatial Development, this will be seen in a favourable light. Our existing applications also use combinations of the below. So, it’s essential / highly desirable that you have expertise in these (in descending order of importance):

  • Web app development using HTML, JS/TS, CSS/SCSS
  • Angular Framework
  • Relational Databases (i.e., PostgreSQL, Oracle and MS SQL)
  • Python with Flask
  • iOS App Development
Ideally, we are looking for a developer that has experience / knowledge in the spatial field. It would be desirable if you had experience with the following tools/libraries that we use:
  • OpenLayers
  • PostGIS
  • QGIS
  • ESRI Suite (ArcGIS Pro, Geoprocessing, Scripting)
  • Geoserver
  • Cesium
Our small team environment means that there are some soft skills that we value highly. Things like:
  • Ability to communicate fluidly with other team members and with clients
  • Ability to take written or verbal instructions and parse them into tasks
  • Flair for the front end (UI/UX)
  • Proactivity and creative thinking to achieve tasks and work through projects
  • Efficient and useful record keeping into knowledge bases, task managers etc.
Think you fit the bill?

So why take a chance on a company with such an out-dated website?
  • Flexible, family-friendly working arrangements
  • Challenging and diverse projects to keep you interested
  • Opportunity (and expectation) to recommend and implement leading tech to new and existing systems
  • Perfect location - enjoy the city benefits of Hobart in the enviable lifestyle of Tasmania
  • Leadership progression for those that demonstrate such
We are interested in talking to people that have their main strength in either front-end or back-end development.

How to apply

For further information or to lodge your application please email vacancies@eskmapping.com.au. Feel free to be creative - impress us to stand out from the crowd.
