Contract Web Framework Designer

Interested in designing a high-performance web application for special-purpose computer hardware?

The Sr. Web Application Designer will carefully choose the right combination of frameworks and tools to design a rich UI for a product line of special-purpose computer systems. Using Web Application technology, the emphasis is on ‘Application’ with requirements for a highly interactive UI that controls the hardware and monitors fast-changing status. A light-weight server-side footprint is a priority, but scalability to 100s of simultaneous users is not.

Key Responsibilities
Evaluate and choose appropriate technologies (including prototyping), and then design a framework for a set of pages to display dynamically changing status and to control the operation of dozens of subsystems that may be present on the specific hardware being controlled.


  • Familiarity with a variety of Web Application frameworks with emphasis on highly interactive, application-like user interfaces with high-speed real-time updates.
  • Solid experience with the full stack of technologies that make up a Web Application, from the server-side back-end to client-side UI frameworks, push and pull communication approaches, AJAX, REST, JSON, XML.
  • Experience with CSS and HTML 5
  • Beneficial to have experience with frameworks in a variety of languages (JavaScript, Java, Python, etc.)
  • Ability to work with little supervision
  • Willingness to capture requirements from sometimes sketchy specifications
  • Proven track record communicating designs to a development team
Due to government-project restrictions, candidates must be U.S. citizens. The position may be filled by contract only. Applicant submittals via placement agencies are not being accepted at this time.
