Digital Technologies Programmer
Hello, all. Winter's approaching, time to migrate south to the University of Miami Libraries.
We have an opening for a Digital Technologies Programmer. You'd be supervising one other programmer, and working in a *brand new* and growing department with the opportunity to set things up just right. (Let's face it--where you're working now, they try, but it would be better if they just did things your way.) And reporting to me--awesome!
