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.

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.

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.
