OBXtek is currently staffing for a Senior Systems Programmer to support SSA's DIET division with Migration of Programmatic Systems Software.
The Division of Integration and Environmental Testing (DIET) is responsible for final integration testing and the release to production of all of SSA’s application code.
DIET’s Software Migration and Implementation Branch (SMIB) is responsible for the migration of SSA application code to support the backend legacy system as well as the front-end Java code for the SSA intranet and Internet applications. SMIB maintains all the code in support of the two integration-testing environments. These environments are mirror images of each other. There are weekly scheduled maintenance releases and movement of newly introduced code to multiple environments. These changes, updates, and upgrades are performed to modify or update one or more of the software platforms maintained by the Mainframe Migration Team (MMT) and the WebSphere Migration Team (WMT): DB2, Integrated Database Management System (IDMS), Customer Information Control System (CICS), WebSphere Application Server (WAS) and Windows .NET. These software platforms integrate e-business applications over a multi-platform computing system using industry standard web technologies.
The contractor will work with DIET to continue the implementation of automating the testing infrastructure and assist with the configuration management and software distribution solution at SSA. Currently, SSA maintains an integrated testing environment that supports all of the mainframe legacy and SSA intranet and Internet applications. This is a constantly evolving environment. SSA is transitioning all of the WAS applications on the Sun Solaris platform to the newly implemented LINUX and WAS z/OS platforms.
