QAT Global, a long-term partner with the State of Nevada , is seeking a highly skilled Sr. Java Developer for a modernization project for the Department of Education in Carson City, NV.

DETR is currently working on several federal grant and agency related projects to enhance business processing. Program areas impacted include a data collection, reporting and case management tool to deliver comprehensive employment and training services to Nevada’s businesses and workers; integration of agency data with the Nevada Department of Education for cross-referencing and data mining purposes; a rewrite of the State Directory of New Hire to better integrate new hire data with DETR’s UI modernization initiative, and migration of several minor internal ADABAS/NATURAL applications to JAVA. Employment Service programs offer job placement and training opportunities that assist businesses in meeting their employment needs and job seekers in returning to work through the state’s workforce investment system.

Final results of these tasks include completing state and federal reporting requirements, providing a seamless transition (data conversion) from old to new solutions, and interfacing with existing dependent programs as identified.
