BirdLife International is the world’s largest nature conservation partnership. Through our unique local-to-global approach, we deliver high impact and long-term conservation for the benefit of nature and people.

We are looking for someone to take responsibility for the design, build, implementation, and support of bespoke data driven development within BirdLife International’s conservation and business systems.

The principal project will be to undertake developments to improve the World Database of Key Biodiversity Areas, a database managing information on 16,000 of the most important locations for biodiversity. Further functional development will build on and compliment work carried out by our external development house, with a view to bring continuous development and continuous integration works in house, including but not limited to:

  • Additional functionality that supports the management of data within the system, including managing information on sensitive species and sites whose datasets need to be withheld from public-facing platforms; facilitating the splitting or merging of other Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs); and managing information on references to scientific papers, reports etc cited in the documentation.
  • Development of a restful API accepting JSON requests, to serve KBA data to the KBA website, BirdLife Data Zone, Integrated Biodiversity Assessment Tool, and third-party platforms and users.
  • Development of file sharing functionality to enable upload and storage of supporting information, documents, and other pdfs.
  • Provision of support when issues with the WDKBA arise that impact on data capture.
  • Improving the solution’s communication and notification processes, for consultation with other registered users of the WDKBA, and for notifying proposers about any of their assessments needing their attention and/ or reassessment.

The ideal candidate will:

Be an experienced Systems Development Practitioner with exposure to React, Node and database technologies working within Scrum and / or Agile working practices.

  • Experience with database development and CI/CD pipelines as well as experience of integrating front-end and back-end components.
  • Experience of Linux system architecture/administration and supporting network architecture as well as Geospatial Information Systems (GIS)
