Element 84 is always on the lookout for new talent to join our team, particularly in Software Engineering and Dev Ops roles. We provide competitive salaries, a big-company benefits package, a small-company culture, and profit sharing. Our office is located in Old Town Alexandria, 8 blocks from the metro with free soda, cinema displays, and walking distance to lots of good food. Element 84 is in the business of hiring smart people to solve hard problems.  Every hire is a hire into Element 84, not just for a specific project. When projects end we retain our team for the next one.

NASA’s EED Program

Element 84 is working on several different projects across NASA’s Earth Observation System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) EED program, a program which is currently expanding! We have a significant team working in an Agile Development environment using cutting edge technologies including Puppet and Clojure. The EOSDIS is a core capability in NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems Program. EOSDIS provides end-to-end capabilities for managing NASA’s Earth science data from various sources – satellites, aircraft, field measurements, and other programs. For the EOS satellite missions, EOSDIS provides capabilities for command and control, scheduling, data capture and initial processing.

Software Developers – 3 – 10 years experience

Currently Element 84 is looking for candidates to work primarily in Rails and Clojure, ideally with experience using JRuby. Developers at all levels are expected to provide team leadership and operational technical support in addition to design and development activities on a highly available, public facing, fully operational system managing large amounts of data. Candidates must have experience with agile development processes that include test and behavior driven development, automated unit testing, continuous integration, and short, rapid deployments. In addition, experience with Oracle or other database technologies or GIS experience would be a plus.
