Full-Stack Developer Consultant

Background

The Regional Knowledge Centre of Marine Plastic Debris, hereafter referred to as the RKC-MPD, was established in October 2019 as part of the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA). The RKC-MPD serves as an information clearinghouse on marine plastic pollution in ASEAN+3 countries, aiming at facilitating national and regional cooperation by promoting relevant policies and good practices among the member states. The RKC-MPD has its office in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Current Status

The RKC-MPD website was created in 2019 and exists within the ERIA website (https://rkcmpd-eria.org/aboutus/rkcmpd). It is still in its early stage of development and expected to play an incrementally important role for the RKC-MPD. The following three rationales explain the significance of the RKC-MPD website:

  1. The general public is increasingly turning to the internet to find out about any given organization. Having a professional, user-friendly, and properly designed website is of great importance for the RKC-MPD to make itself known and assert its claim as a regional knowledge hub for the region.
  2. The RKC-MDP is mandated to serve 13 countries (10 ASEAN member states and China, Japan, and South Korea). Due to this regional/international scope of work, the transboundary nature of the online site is vital to achieving institutional objectives.
  3. The website plays a substantial role in disseminating knowledge, information, and data on an international level. It also serves the RKC-MPD to collect knowledge, relevant information, and data, especially but not exclusively from the private sector.

Duties and Responsibilities

  3. Developing new features and functionalities as requested, including (but not limited to): preparing new content, customizing new design and structure, building a new page from concept to completion within the existing website, and updating the back-end for administrator. Substantial revisions may require a new scope of work to be developed.
  4. Review statistics and monitor analytics to assess the website's performance on a monthly and annual basis.
  5. Maintain responsive design by staying up to date on the web's latest technologies and make sure the site and its features are always mobile-friendly and multi-platform ready.
  6. Perform basic on-site SEO optimization (title tag, meta tags, meta descriptions).
  7. Controls the security of the website and provides security and threat reports, if any.
