Within the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the Programme Support Branch (PSB) is responsible for helping OCHA country offices and humanitarian partners implement the Humanitarian Programme Cycle (HPC). PSB, in partnership with OCHA’s Information Services Branch (ISB) is currently developing the suite of information services which support the HPC. This includes online database applications for the administration of systems such as those for the Financial Tracking Service (FTS) and the Online Projects System (OPS); as well as new online systems to facilitate the creation, management and monitoring of humanitarian response plans (HRPs). These are being built on technologies including PostgreSQL, Node.js and AngularJS.

OCHA is seeking talented and creative individuals to help in the technical development process of these online applications in conjunction with external partners, and subsequently to ensure ongoing iterative development, maintenance and support. The individual will need to have access to a Mac OSX or Linux environment.

The individual would join an OCHA-wide team of developers, product managers, designers and business analysts with expertise in core technologies used by several different projects throughout the organization, with the aim to foster closer structured collaboration and interchange between them.

The position is home-based, and ideally should be based in the same or similar time zone as Switzerland as it requires close and continuous collaboration with the team in Geneva. Travel to Geneva may be required on an as-needs basis every few months.
