The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) is seeking talented and creative individuals to contribute to the development and maintenance of its online applications (HPC.tools). Within OCHA, the Assessment, Planning and Monitoring Branch (APMB) is responsible for helping OCHA’s network of country offices and humanitarian partners implement the humanitarian programme cycle (HPC). APMB, in partnership with OCHA’s Information Services Branch (ISB) is engaged in a multi-year transformation project to improve the suite of information management tools/systems that support the HPC. This includes data management applications for project submission and review, monitoring and evaluation of humanitarian response, and financial tracking, amongst others. These applications are developed on a Javascript stack using PostgreSQL, Node.js, TypeScript, AngularJS and Angular, React, and provide data to a public API and two Drupal websites: Financial Tracking Service (fts.unocha.org) and Humanitarian InSight (hum-insight.info). 

The successful candidate will be working as a developer in a small team of both senior and junior backend and frontend developers, and will work either as a full stack developer or (depending on skillsets) with a particular emphasis on frontend or backend work. In addition to programming, the successful candidate may also be involved in the coordination and oversight of the development team or members thereof, as well as contribute to sprint and release planning. While the position is home-based, occasional travel to Geneva, Switzerland might be required. The successful candidate will report to the Information Systems Officer, Monitoring Platforms and Tools Section (MATS), in Geneva and work collaboratively with colleagues in OCHA Headquarters locations, as well as other developers working on this and other OCHA projects.
