GIS Developer: Unpath`d Waters

Historic England have a fantastic opportunity for you to join us as our ArcGIS Developer. We need you to join us to increase access to the country`s rich maritime heritage. To accomplish this you we need you to lead on designing and implementing a new approach to public facing mapping which will enable the research and discovery work of Unpath`d Waters to connect to existing mapping tools to ensure that our inhouse teams can easily get to grips with the technology and easily increase the potential impact of the work, especially in the context of the development of our Mariner system.

This opportunity is a two-year fixed term contract based in Swindon – homeworking is possible but you will be required to work in the office at least one day a week.

We offer a wide benefits package including a competitive pension scheme, a generous 28 days holiday, corporate discounts, free entry into English Heritage sites across the county and development opportunities to ensure you achieve your goals.

What you will be doing:

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) has awarded £14.5 million to the research and development of emerging technologies, including machine learning and citizen-led archiving, in order to connect the UK`s cultural artefacts and historical archives in new and transformative ways. Five `Discovery Projects` will harness the potential of new technology to dissolve barriers between collections – opening up public access and facilitating research across a range of sources and stories held in different physical locations. Historic England is leading one of these Discovery Projects – Unpath`d Waters: Marine and Maritime Collections in the UK.

We need you to provide support for current and future corporate mapping systems, with focus on integration of Mariner data into the new Heritage Gateway.

Here are some of the key objectives:
-Design and extend a companywide approach to implementing mapping using the ArcGIS product and various API, that delivers on a common approach to mapping tools.
-Work with inhouse .NET developers, JavaScript developers and designers to implement efficient, fit for purpose mapping solutions into Historic England`s digital output.
-Ensure high quality, efficient, reliable code, including peer reviewing the work of other developers, and take on board feedback from peer review of your work.
-Contribute to a culture of continuous improvement, promoting best practice and enhancing existing systems.
-Identify and carry out enhancements to existing implementations to ensure the approach is fit of purpose.
-Providing documentation and advice re training on current and future systems.
-Ensuring all documentation, including Unit Test and Unit Integration Testing Results, are produced as laid down in the IMT Development Centre Manual.
-Ensure all live source code is routinely saved in Microsoft DevOps.

Who we are looking for:

-At least 3 years working with JavaScript and ArcGIS in a professional environment.
-Must have worked with ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Online.
-Proven experience in using permissions in ArcGIS Hosted Services.
-Ability to make decisions and provide advice to managers regarding decisions

Provisional interview date: w/c 10th January 2022
