Please review the job details below. Maxar is seeking a Full Stack Developer to join our team in Northern, VA. We use quick iteration and regular feedback to the prototype for our government customers before ultimately discovering the perfect fit. We embed our Full Stack developers with analytic teams in order to create custom web apps. Life with Us Project: We're building new spatial features into our mission-focused web app. Our front end framework is Vue with Material Design, and we leverage the ArcGIS JavaScript API for our dynamic geospatial data visualizations. The team is currently well-sorted with regard to geospatial tools and techniques, but to round out the team properly we need someone to help accelerate our development timelines.

These apps are used to facilitate greater workforce performance by: * Encouraging further analytic exploration; * Reducing the friction of flawed workflows; and * Enabling potential in individuals that are otherwise stifled by imperfect technologies. We work in a very Lean-Agile environment without the overhead associated with traditional Scrum. We've eliminated unnecessary development meetings and we love it! We work together with our govt. stakeholders in their spaces in a very free-flowing environment. Minimum Requirements: * Must be a US Citizen with a current/active TS/SCI clearance with Polygraph * Bachelor's degree in a related field, eg Computer Science, Systems Engineering, etc. * 8 years of development experience. * Strong Python and JavaScript skills!
