Research and suggest and implement new frameworks to consider.
Third party application integration:
Work with other members of the Engineering Division CAD group to streamline and customize our engineer's PLM experience. Determine and develop mechanisms for storing data and integrating third party applications within our PLM systems. Engineering Division has adopted PTC Windchill as the main PLM platform and an in-house design for the Document Control Center (DCC).
Utilize third party APIs and develop new ones to help share and migrate data between different platforms.
Support implementing new features and functionality for a PLM platform (Windchill).
Support implementing customized user interfaces.
Server side Java development experience desired for working with our PLM system (Windchill) server side based customizations.
Assist in automating as much of our engineering work flow as possible through developed scripts / functionality.
Typically requires a Bachelor's degree or equivalent experience and a minimum of 5 years related experience or 3 years and a Master's degree.
The ability to work on both the front and back ends of an application utilizing modern best practices.
Have the ability to configure and manage our web infrastructure during upgrades and operations
Interface with third party systems through APIs, database calls, XML, etc.
Working knowledge of Unix / Linux and Windows operating systems.
Experience working with servers and services to maximize up time and minimize configuration complexities.
Demonstrated experience performing in a team atmosphere involving multi-disciplinary personnel
Excellent oral and written communication skills.
Additional Desired Qualifications:
Experience with low level Unix/Linux server services.
Experience with Cloud infrastructure and DevOps.
Experience and working knowledge of modern front end frameworks, like React, AngularJS.
Usage and proficiency in modern backend languages like nodeJS or golang.
Expertise in utilizing restful APIs to exchange data between systems and the possibility to help migrate our existing solutions to GraphQL, gRPC or WebHooks.
Experience with PLM system management through operations, workflows, part structures, downstream BOMs, visualization generation & management.
Native mobile app development knowledge to potentially connect our custom applications and / or third party applications to a mobile UI.
Ability to understand and develop in backend scripts.
Experience in data translation and manipulation.
Working knowledge of GIT or SVN version control system.
The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.
This is a 2-year Term appointment with the possibility of extension for up to five years based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs.
Full-time, M-F, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.
Salary is commensurate with experience.
Classification will depend upon the applicant's level of skills, knowledge, and abilities.
This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.

About Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with excellence. Thirteen scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world. Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular... views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2011 is $735 million, with an additional $101 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $836 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory's overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The Lab was also responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It was Lawrence's belief that scientific research is best done through teams of individuals with different fields of expertise, working together. His teamwork concept is a Berkeley Lab legacy that continues today.
