Position Posting - Webmaster - CLOSED

Recommended Posts

Our ARTCC is in a unique scenario at the moment in that we have a patchwork of a few different systems (archived website, bvartcc.com website, and these forums) that currently aren't interconnected. We also don't currently have a member of the staff with the availability or technical expertise to create a unifying website that will either bring all of those elements together, or create a new interconnected website and forums that meet our needs.


We are exploring two possibilities, the first being finding a Webmaster who has the availability and commitment to build us a new website. The website would need to be CMS-based with several custom applications including training/roster administration, PRP ratings, events sign-up, and an integrated VATSIM SSO sign-in system. A second option would be finding and paying a professional web developer to create a website for us, in which case the role of a new Webmaster would be to oversee the contract and development of this website, and to know enough about it to maintain the website moving forward.


Potential applicants for the webmaster role should clearly identify in their application which of the two options above they are intending to pursue if selected to the position.


Boston Virtual ARTCC is one of the only integrated ATC and pilot communities on the VATSIM network. As a result, we have one of the busiest, realistic, and professional on-frequency experiences available. Controllers in our ARTCC have the benefit of talking primarily to member pilots who know the airspace, train through the Pilot Ratings Program, and are available in TeamSpeak to help others. A webmaster will join our experienced Administration Team and will also have the ability to join our ATC roster through an abbreviated process skipping the majority of the requirements for regular visitors or transfers (if that is of interest and if the candidate is already a controller with another facility).


The official position posting is listed below. The posting will remain open until a candidate is selected. Depending on the interest we receive from the community, we'll open the application to VATUSA in the near future.
