The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is a billion dollar international neutrino project in which a beam of netrinos is fired from Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (FNAL), just outside of Chicago, IL, to a 10kton liquid argon detector, located in the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota.
The DUNE group at the University of Minnesota has been developing a Quality Control (QC)/Installation application for the DUNE collaboration. This is designed to provide the consortia carrying out design and construction of major detector subsystems with a user-friendly interface to the DUNE central database. This will be used throughout construction and will incorporate highly detailed detector information for use in future data-taking and analysis. It will facilitate the entry of detector component parameters and the results of QC testing into the main database at Fermilab and will catalogue installation procedures and engineering diagrams for easy access by managers and workers.
We now have a 3-year funding and are currently looking for an iOS Developer to join our team.
The application has been developed within the iOS Xcode IDE and runs on iPads. The iOS Developer will be responsible for building and improving the application. You must enjoy technical challenges and be eager to deliver robust applications that will delight the DUNE collaborators.
This position will work remotely, but must reside within driving distance to the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus.
As an iOS developer (Swift), your main duty is to develop/improve the application on a day-to-day basis, based on the requests from our customers (the DUNE collaboration).
You will attend meetings with customers regarding features and integrations in our application.
You work closely with the Minnesota team and report updates to the head of the team on a weekly basis.
Occasional domestic and international travel to FNAL in Batavia, Illinois or CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.
Other duties of a similar scope as assigned.
Bachelor’s degree in physics, engineering, computer science or related technical discipline or a combination of related education and work experience in the area of application/web/system development to equal four years.
Up to date with the latest features provided in the iOS/iPadOS SDK by Apple.
Experience with databases like PostgreSQL and SQLite.
Experience with committing and pushing code in GIT and following GitFlow.
Experience creating and presenting oral and written communications.
Experience in developing apps in Swift for the Apple ecosystem.
Fluent with Xcode and in writing Swift code.
Experience with software development environment as well as distributed mobility platforms is highly desirable.
Knowledge on experimental high energy physics is a big plus.
Experience in working remotely is a plus.
Having worked in an international team before is considered a plus.
