Project Overview:

REI SYStems will be responsible for updating data analysis, dashboard and performance reporting tools for HRSA's grant management platform as part of the five-year, Electronic Handbooks Development and Enhancement Support Services contract.

HRSA’s EHB system is built for agency personnel to monitor more than $12 billion in annual grants and works with similar technology at the Health Resources and Services Administration.


Position Overview:

  • Code complex functionality. Whether it’s a new template for a content-managed website, a dynamic visualization, a tricky third-party integration, or a crazy animation sequence – you’re up for the challenge and you’ll take pride in the finished product.
  • Build front-end solutions that adhere to performance, security, usability, and accessibility standards for government websites.
  • Test your code and help ensure that the right code is being tested across your project. You also help make sure that integration tests are running, and that everyone on the team tests before they push code (either manually or as part of a pre-commit hook).
  • Model the behavior and practices that you want to see in the organization. Want to follow TDD? Do it and demonstrate the results to your team and clients. Itching to adopt a new tool or framework? Try it out and show the value.
  • Estimate or point your own work and be able to sanity check estimations from more junior developers to make sure that they’re setting themselves up for success.


Required Skills:

  • Excellent knowledge of the DOM and ability to hand code modern web solutions using HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript

  • Ability to extract necessary visual assets from Photoshop and/or Sketch files, and optimize them appropriately
  • Experience using distributed version control systems for code management (particularly Git)
  • Experience working on large public-facing websites, content management systems, and/or backend frameworks (Java, .NET, Node.js)
  • Experience implementing accessible websites and/or web components that comply with Section 508 and WCAG
  • Experience with GIS or Map based interfaces
