The Sponsor applies technical resources to accelerate the timely, reliable, and secure delivery of open source data, information, and insights. The Sponsor requires support to develop and deliver a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) for a new subsystem within the ecosystem of an existing big data exploitation platform. The Contractor will work within an agile team environment. Work will include writing, testing, and debugging custom application code; developing a database backend; and performing Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) processes to populate the database with existing data. The Application Developer (Dev) Team shall work closely with the Sponsor’s product owner to deliver user stories necessary to realize product vision. The Sponsor anticipates requiring a surge of approximately 26 two-week sprints to develop the MVP. At this time, the Sponsor does not require ongoing support after the MVP is delivered. The Dev Team shall apply an agile approach to software development consistent with the Sponsor’s project management and software development frameworks with a focus on demonstrating and delivering releasable software every iteration. The Dev Team shall work closely with the existing application team to apply design standards and consistency and address any security vulnerabilities uncovered during the development and test phases. The Dev Team shall maintain all source code in the Sponsor-wide, remote Git repository. The Dev shall apply industry best practices (such as, but not specifically Test Driven Development) for ensuring custom application code is comprehensively tested. The Dev Team shall administer and maintain relational and non-relational database systems within the application security boundary. The Dev Team shall perform data cleaning and formatting for ingested data ensuring they meet quality and content management standards. The Dev Team shall build and maintain modern cloud based platforms. The Dev Team shall develop and maintain applications using a modern front end stack such as Angular, React, or Vue.js. The Contractor Team shall develop and maintain applications using a modern server-side stack such as Express, Python, or serverless technologies. The Contractor Team shall experience developing and maintaining applications using modern NoSQL and SQL-based back-end database technologies such as MongoDB, DynamoDB, PostgreSQL, or MySQL. The Dev Team shall develop software in a DevSecOps environment. The Dev Team shall attend bi-weekly Sprint Planning and Sprint Review meetings in person at the Sponsor location.
