We’re looking for a passionate, and experienced Ruby on Rails (RoR) Developer to join our team where you will have the opportunity to architect and deliver cutting edge applications that explain and explore the value of the world’s natural resources to governments, scientists and civil society.
If you not only want to work with the latest technologies, but also want to feel good and know that your code will help to make a difference to nature and the environment, this is your chance!
At the United Nations Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre we make web and mobile applications to save the planet. Our products are used around the world by Governments, the UN, international foundations and wildlife conservation organisations to track the trade in endangered species, catalogue the worlds protected areas via https://protectedplanet.net/ (over 230,000 of them to date!) and help end the illegal trade in apes (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-37513707)
If you have the confidence, interpersonal skills, drive and aptitude to function as part of an Agile team with a strong focus on learning, and not afraid to experiment with new technology to solve problems, we want to hear from you. As well as the chance to work on some world changing applications, we also offer a competitive salary and benefits package, including flexible hours and generous pension contributions.
To apply, please complete a WCMC application form and submit it with a CV and short covering letter using the link below by 13th July 2017. We recommend you register your interest quickly, as a decision may be taken to appoint somebody ahead of the closing date.
A relocation allowance is available with this position. For more details contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
