Senior Software Developer
We’re looking for a Senior Software Developer to join our team! This position will be working with the Department of Psychology in the College of Liberal Arts on software infrastructure to support their world-class research efforts. We’re looking for someone who will be able to help modernize the existing software tools, and innovate with new ideas and technologies.
You’ll be part of the “LATIS Innovation” team, which includes software developers, data analysts, and business analysts. You’ll be working closely with technology professionals from the Department of Psychology, as well as Psychology faculty and research staff.
This job can be either fully in person, or partially in-person and partially remote. When you’re on campus, you’ll either be working in Elliot Hall, where the Department of Psychology is housed, or in Anderson Hall, where LATIS is housed. Campus is a great place to be, with events, community gatherings, and a ton of energy. We also have weekly barbeques during the summer and enjoy our location right on the Mississippi river.
Much of the work for this position will be focused on the needs of the Minnesota Center for Twin and Family Research (MCTFR), which houses preeminent research studies looking at twins, siblings, and parents. The MCTFR has a software infrastructure that helps to manage long-term studies with thousands of participants. This involves management of private and very sensitive data, as well as dealing with very large data sets. These tools currently consist of a mix of Ruby on Rails web applications, as well as desktop applications running on Windows. The person in this position will be helping to modernize the Rails tooling, and migrate from desktop applications to web applications.
In addition to high expectations around security and the management of private data, the person in this position will be responsible for thinking about long term support and sustainability. We’re strong supporters of writing good documentation, building automated tests, and making sure that future developers can understand our work.
