Short Description:

We are looking for a highly-skilled programmer who will be responsible for analysis, design, coding, component and assembly testing, documentation, and placing into production all application code supported by the Benefits team.


Complete Description:

The Office of Information Technology (OIT), supporting the Maine Department of Labor (MDOL), is looking for a Programmer 5 with Skill Category 3 to work on the team supporting the Benefits system. MDOL has been awarded Supplemental Budget Requests for several projects, and we need additional development staff to help us accomplish the work.


The projects will involve development in the Unemployment Compensation Benefits system at the MDOL. The Benefits system is a critical legacy system that provides MDOL with the capability to register individuals for unemployment insurance benefits and to disburse those benefits.


The Benefits application is programmed in a combination of Oracle PL/SQL, SQL, Unix scripting, and COBOL languages.

This will change to Linux during this contract term. The database interacts with other entities, including a Progress dataserver. Additionally, the client is in the process of upgrades, which require them to work in various combinations of database versions, including Oracle 9, 10, and 11.


This is technical work involving the development of complex computer programs. Responsibilities will include designing, coding, testing, debugging, and documenting application programs.



Years of Relevant Experience: 10 plus years


Preferred Education: 4-year college degree or equivalent technical study with advanced study preferred.


Role Description: All roles specified plus the following:

• Proven track record of hands-on technical design and code work within large complex systems.
