Description

Salary: £30,728 to £36,661

We need a developer to help implement and maintain innovative virtual library services, delivered to higher education institutions across the UK. This is an excellent opportunity to join a talented and friendly group of software engineers, helping to develop our services further and contribute to new projects. We do object-oriented programming, keep our data in relational databases and search servers, and use web frameworks to design our interfaces. Most of us develop on Linux or Mac platforms, and our services are delivered from a mix of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Enterprise Solaris servers.

You should be a graduate in a computing-related discipline, or have relevant experience, with significant experience of web application development. Your skills will include object-oriented programming in a language such as Java or Perl.

Knowledge of web services or machine-to-machine interfaces (e.g. SRU, OAI-PMH, REST), repository software (e.g. DSpace, Eprints), would be an advantage - but most important is initiative along with good analysis and problem-solving skills, so that you can react in an informed and creative way to problems and new requirements.

Benefits of working at the University include flexible working, an excellent pension, career prospects and generous holiday provision.

This post is on a fixed term basis for 2 years.
