Hi all,

We have an opening at Unidata. If you could pass this along to anyone you
think might be interested, I would be most grateful.



Unidata <https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/about/tour/index.html> is looking for
a scientific software developer to help us help our community of scientists
access the Earth system science data that fuels their research. You'll have
a chance to work with a great team at the Unidata Program Center and an
enthusiastic open source community to test, maintain, and develop Unidata
software projects. This position will focus on and act as technical lead
for the Unidata AWIPS <https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/awips2/>
package. AWIPS (the Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System) is the
meteorological display and analysis package used at US National Weather
Service (NWS) forecast offices. Unidata AWIPS is a version of the NWS AWIPS
that has been modified and repackaged for non-operational use for research
and education.

As technical lead, you will work closely with NOAA/NCEP, NOAA/NWS,
Raytheon, and the broader community to understand and specify Unidata
community needs. You'll collaborate with Unidata management and other
Unidata developers to evaluate the state of the AWIPS project, determine
next steps, and communicate this information to Unidata’s governing
committees and the broader Unidata community.

In addition, you'll work to improve and simplify the Unidata AWIPS
distribution and the installation process for use by the Unidata community,
and contribute to Unidata’s efforts to support the deployment of AWIPS in
other countries and national weather services. Alongside Unidata developers
and community members, you'll identify ways that AWIPS can be modified to
improve usability by University educators and researchers, working with the
NOAA AWIPS development team to document issues and consider solutions that
can be contributed back to the AWIPS codebase.
