Our database uses a distributed client/server model where field offices can perform data entry and run reports offline while syncing with a central server as needed (e.g., during times of poor internet connectivity). On the backend, the technologies used are SQL server 2014 with merge replication to field offices, while on the front end we use MVC.Net, Breeze.js, and Angular.js. As we are growing, we are looking to:
Improve our existing tools to capture a wide variety of program configurations per country and provide functionality for a multitude of field product and process innovations.
Provide central management and reporting tools while maintaining a focus on field usability.
- Build out efficient bulk data entry functionality with a heavy focus on data quality control, as well as field-facing mobile and tablet data entry, and reporting where appropriate.
- Producing a field-facing, mission-critical Program Management System.
Participating in the continued development of our mission-critical custom database, which impacts every aspect of the organization’s operations.
Developing features allowing for flexibility in the way individual countries run their operations, while still focusing on reusability across countries.
Maintaining a long-term perspective when faced with urgent operational demands.
Working together with our small team of developers.
Maintaining coding standards and participating in peer code reviews.
Technology experimentation: Experimenting with a variety of technologies to improve operations. Investigating appropriate solutions for deploying upgrades, database scaling, and interacting with 3rd party software providers.
Operational insight: Becoming familiar with every aspect of our field operations and identifying areas for improvement in the tools we develop to support the field.
- Other tasks: We are a young organization that is growing rapidly, which means all staffers pitch in to ensure we are providing the very best support and services to both our team and clients.
