Job Description:

Mindbank Consulting Group has an immediate need for a Senior Software Systems Engineer. Contract Background / Project Description The United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), Ecological Services (ES) has developed two pieces of custom software that help USFWS and our partners with ESA Section 7 consultation: Effects Pathway Manager (EPM) and the Information for Planning and Consultation (IPaC). IPaC is a public-facing USFWS web application that provides information to over 48,000 external users to help them determine if a project will have effects on federally listed species or designated critical habitat. EPM is an internal USFWS web application for documenting logical cause-effect relationships between an action on the ground and that action---s effect on individuals of a particular species. IPaC leverages the data in EPM to assist users with the ESA Section 7 process. As decision-support tools, IPaC and EPM improve the consultation process by informing more accurate and consistent determinations. IPaC also helps streamline and improves consistency and transparency in the overall consultation process. Environmental Conservation Online System (ECOS) is a highly visible project for the service which serves as a gateway web site that provides access to data systems in the USFWS and other government data sources. This central point of access assists USFWS personnel in managing data and information, and it provides public access to information from numerous USFWS databases. ECOS produces a variety of reports related to the List of Threatened and Endangered Species. IPaC and EPM have been part of ECOS since their inception and are now being transitioned into the new ECOSphere system. This transition involves not only moving our applications into the Cloud, but also changing our data connections to the data warehouse and ETK and away from ECOS modules. Moving IPaC and EPM into the ECOSphere system will provide future synergistic opportunities to offer even better tools for consultation to both our USFWS and external users. Along with moving from ECOS to ECOSphere, USFWS-ES is seeking to make several planned improvements to both IPaC and EPM and continue to make critical fixes as issues arise. USFWS-ES has identified the following IPaC- and EPM-related software development needs that will result in significant benefits to all of our users (USFWS, our field offices, action agencies, and the public) in terms of time savings and value added. The primary goals of this work are to: 1. Improve and update IPaC and EPM software, and its integrations, to better serve our users 2.
