Computer Programmer IV

Systems Integration & Development Inc., an IT solutions provider located in Rockville, Maryland is currently seeking a Computer Programmer IV to perform programming services. The successful candidate will have experience with developing web-based applications using ColdFusion, Javascript, and SQL, and Oracle databases. This is a full-time position located in Washington DC. US CITIZENSHIP IS REQUIRED. Roles and responsibilities include:

  • Performs programming services, converts specifications (precise descriptions) about business or scientific problems into a sequence of detailed instructions to solve problems by electronic data processing (EDP) equipment, i.e. digital computers; draws program flow charts to describe the processing of data, and develops the precise steps and processing logic which, when entered into the computer in coded language (COBOL, FORTRAN, or other programming language) to cause the manipulation of data to achieve desired results.
  • Tests and corrects programs, prepares instructions for operators who control the computer during runs, modifies programs to increase operating efficiency or to respond to changes in work processes, and maintains records to document program development and revisions.
  • Applies expertise in programming procedures to complex programs; recommends the redesign of programs, investigates and analyzes feasibility and program requirements, and develops programming specifications.
  • Plans the full range of programming actions to produce several interrelated but different products from numerous and diverse data elements, which are usually from different sources; solves difficult programming problems, and uses knowledge of pertinent system software, computer equipment, work processes, regulations, and management practices.
  • Develops, modifies, and maintains complex programs; designs and implements the interrelations of files and records within programs which will effectively fit into the overall design of the project; works with problems or concepts and develops programs for the solution to major scientific computational problems requiring the analysis and development of logical or mathematical descriptions of functions to be programmed; develops occasional special programs, e.g. a critical path analysis program to assist in managing a special project.
  • Tests, documents, and writes operating instructions for all work, confers with other EDP personnel to secure information, investigate and resolve problems, and coordinates work efforts.
  • Performs such programming analyses as: investigating the feasibility of alternate program design approaches to determine the best balanced solution, e.g., one that will best satisfy immediate user needs, facilitate subsequent modification, and conserve resources.
  • Assists user personnel in defining problems or needs, determining work organization on typical maintenance projects and smaller scale, working on limited new projects, the necessary files and records, and their interrelation with the program or working on large or more complicated projects, and participating as a team member along with other EDP personnel and users, holding responsibility for a portion of the project.
  • Works independently under overall objectives and direction, apprising the supervisor about progress and unusual complications and modifying and adapting precedent solutions and proven approaches.
