Library Associates Companies (LAC) is seeking an experienced Software Engineer to join a contract supporting USAID's Development Experience Clearinghouse (DEC).  The DEC is USAID's main repository of reports, studies, policy documents and other products of the Agency's numerous development projects. The records represent USAID's vast development experience, and are a vital element of the Agency's knowledge management program. USAID has ambitious plans to reaffirm its leading position in the development community. Expanding the DEC's holdings and making them more accessible and useful to the Agency's staff, its development partners, and the general public will be critical to this effort.

We are currently deploying a modern digital asset management tool; moving to an existing commercial search engine; importing over 100,000 public and private document records into the new system; and upgrading the DEC so it will afford new levels of access not only to USAID staff, but to the general public.

The applicant must have extensive knowledge and experience in web-based, database-driven application development.  Responsibilities will include but not be limited to:

*           Participate in server backup and  recovery processes and planning

*           Develop new functionality and enhance application design

*           Provide application and help documentation

*           Ensure application security

*           Provide DEC user technical support as needed


*           A bachelor's degree in computer science or a related degree; 4 years of equivalent experience may be substituted

*           Must have 4 years application development experience in a Net environment

*           javascript, XML and ASP.Net in a Windows development environment

*           Windows Server 2003 and Active Directory experience

*           Ability to work independently and as a team member

*           Familiarity with Inmagic Presto Application is preferred

*           Candidate must be eligible for a secret security clearance
