The ideal candidate would have over five (5) years of professional programming experience and be adept with using an object-oriented language like Java and a front-end framework like React.

This full-stack development role requires excellent problem solving skills, a strong eye for coding detail, while also providing outstanding customer service. This position is open to applicants from any location within the U.S.; the chosen candidate will have the option of being fully remote or joining us at our HQ office in Tallahassee, FL if local.

A little bit about Diverse Computing, Inc.

At Diverse Computing, we are passionate about our mission for delivering innovative IT solutions that improve the effectiveness and security of the public safety community. In other words, we create software that has a higher purpose than simply making a profit.

Imagine working for a company where you get to take ownership of your projects. Imagine having the opportunity to play a pivotal role with software that is designed to improve the safety for public safety and law enforcement personnel. Imagine being in a cooperative, team-oriented environment where everyone truly has each other's back. At Diverse Computing, these aren’t just catch phrases… they are part of our everyday reality.

There are other aspects about Diverse Computing that make us an appealing place to work for. We are not a publicly-traded company, and as such, we are not beholden to the demands of shareholders or investors. We also are not a start-up company that could close shop if the next round of venture capital doesn't come through. We ARE a privately-held company with around 60 employees, and that smaller size allows us to be nimble and to make quick adjustments in a constantly-evolving technology field.

If this sounds like an ideal career opportunity for you, please read on for more info!
