GRN has developed a number of websites and apps for in-house and public use. These aid in the process of language research and recording, production of recordings into audio and video formats, and making the materials in thousands of languages accessible to everyone around the globe.
GRN uses a mix of Google Cloud services, and fullstack Vue.js applications backed by a GraphQL API, which connects to a PostgreSQL database. The code is deployed using Kubernetes. Caching is possible with GraphQL or Cloud Firestore. A significant amount of our static content is served by Cloud Storage.
GRN practices "DevOps", which means developers also fill the operational requirements of their applications. Depending on work schedules, some on-call hours may be requested of you.
This work can be done as either a full time or part time supported staff member, or as a volunteer. Management of these projects is done from GRN Australia, but suitably skilled developers could potentially work from anywhere.
