540.co is looking for a motivated full-stack (Java/Angular) developer to help leaders in the Pentagon improve visibility through data analytics platform development. We are looking for a startup-minded individual to work with and understand client requirements and develop and maintain appropriate and scalable technical requirements of a RESTful API-first analytics platform. On this project, you will be supporting the implementation of an API-centric data platform that collects data via reporting requirements and policy for Pentagon leadership and Congress. Other than the facilitation of reporting workflows and data security and access, our client wants to design and implement a system that unlocks all collected data for analysis through a variety of micro web apps (powered by reusable APIs) that can be built quickly and maintained/deployed easily. There should also be the ability for discovery and orchestration with other relevant data sources to provide more value to the analyst community… dare we say data science.
