Programmer

We are in search of a programmer to further develop the Negev project online mapping platform. You will be joining a small team of researchers based at the Goldsmiths campus in New Cross, London who are working on a frontier research project that mobilises architecture and 3D photography to bear upon violations of human rights, analysing complex historical and current political events through the development of new research tools.

Some technologies we have used so far for this project: THREE.js, React/Redux, MongoDB, ExpressJS, Open Layers, Potree.

The position would start immediately and the project deadline is in early October, with the possibility of continuation.

Applicants should:

  • Have their general expertise in full stack web development and computer graphics;
  • Have a strong research and conceptual inclination, research experience is a plus;
  • Have a knowledge and interest in computer graphics, GIS, mapping and geospatial visualisation technologies, practices and tools, including and particularly in 3D space;
  • Be rigorous, communicative, capable of multi-tasking, and a keen eye for detail; and
  • Be confident in quickly learning new software.

The long-term vision for the project requires developing new ways of integrating multiple large point clouds within current technologies of mapping and geospatial data visualization on the web, as well as extending existing technologies (such as Potree) to the particularities of our case. We are hoping that development of these tools can be useful to a larger community of mappers and researchers and activists.
