Are you someone who really wants to make a difference?

You will have experience in:

  • Linux and cloud service environments
  • Grails and/or Java and/or Scala programming and documentation
  • Webstandards and protocols including CSS and Javascript
  • Management of relational databases
  • Along with the desire to learn new skills


In return we will give you the opportunity to:

  • work on developing the largest species data base for any country in the world
  • make your mark by developing the NBN Atlas as a world-leading database
  • develop your skills in software development
