Potential projects could include, but are not limited to, the following:
— Rebuilding existing election map website;
— Rebuild existing online services ie. OS Opendata;
— Backoffice Data fulfilment services;
— Bespoke Mapping data Mobile Applications;
— Redesign of Ordnance Survey website.
Typically the technologies that a Contractor will encounter if successful are;
— PHP;
— DotNet;
— Python;
— Java;
— Java Script;
— CSS;
— MySQL;
— Postgres;
— Teamsite;
— Magento.
Please note that the above list is not exhaustive.
Ordnance Survey is a keen exponent of Agile project delivery and therefore It is essential that the successful Contractor will respond to requests for services within a short timescale and will be able to provide an on-site presence at short notice.
Also the successful Contractor may be expected to provision and manage hosted systems and applications if required.
