Web / Software Programmer
The web / software programmer works on a range of technical projects
to help improve and maintain the OPG website or software applications
related to OPG goals.
This could include
setting up and improving the a custom content management system that
makes it possible for volunteers
without HTML skills to update many pages on the site
from a web-based form interface.
Another project involves the custom programming for the Request Tracker
task management application.
Some tasks require fairly
advanced programming in a language like Python or Perl.
and strong HTML skills are also required for the position.
The web / software programmer also keeps the OPG site compliant with accessibility
guidelines like those documented at CAST.
If you have experience with Flash programming or would like to
learn any kind of graphics design, the OPG site could benefit
from improved graphics as well. We are also interested in
investigating XML conversion and content syndication through
mechanisms like RSS.
