We need an AWS expert to create a main calculations management API server. This API server responds to a Web application (separate job) which serves as a platform for crowd-sourced engineering analysis. That web application is being developed in Ruby on Rails.
Your calculations management API server will receive requests to
- run an instance of an Engineering Software,
- using a set of input variables,
- through a set of provided calculation instructions native to that engineering software.
Various engineering software which we aim to bring on the platform come with different methods for passing input and calculation instructions. The running instances of these engineering software should be API servers themselves (separate job). These instant calculation API servers will be spun by your calculations management API server.
For our MVP, we need only one engineering software available on the platform. This software happens to be standard Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. A calculation API server for Excel spreadsheets is being developed (separate job) which you should handle it by your calculations management API server.
A detailed requirements document for this calculations management API server will be provided to shortlisted candidates.
This job post is the second post in a series of three posts for developing our MVP for macromodeler.com. You may check the other two job posts here:
