Web Developer Zurka Interactive
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Bring your passion for building applications. This is a group that values new ideas and creative solutions. You'll be building web applications in support of Special Forces (SOCOM). Experience should include the creation of web applications with database back-ends and hundreds or thousands of users. Preference is given to candidates with a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science, Engineering or other technical field.
The Networks and Communication Systems Branch (http://cs.itd.nrl.navy.mil/) of the U.S. Naval Research Lab (http://www.nrl.navy.mil/) has an opening for a web developer. The group adopts commercial and open-source/open-standard capabilities where possible and gives particular emphasis to advancing open standards that are commercially viable and can meet DoD requirements. R&D is also focused on those areas that are DoD-unique and unlikely to be addressed by other sectors, such as development of methods to dynamically allocate communication resources that meet warfighting needs. This includes supporting network-, transport-, and application-layer functional performance over shared communication media and the development of mechanisms that enable acceptable application performance under typical wireless operational network conditions of limited data rate, frequent link outages, high packet-loss, and network dynamics caused by node mobility. We use discrete-event computer simulations, based on industry standard software tools to design and test all forms of packet-switched networks, and we implement prototype systems to test new networking concepts and capabilities.
