Created: May 8, 2015


We are looking for a creative, enthusiastic, and dedicated individual who is passionate about user-centered design and interested in being part of a dynamic, collaborative environment at a large academic library.

The University of Arizona Libraries is a vibrant, forward-looking organization with a talented staff that has recently taken great strides in moving our web initiatives forward. We often collaborate with other units on campus, and are recognized as being innovative in the areas of user-focused design and development, content strategy, and automated testing. We aim to lead the library community in groundbreaking, transformative, intuitive design.

We are dedicated to supporting the success of our faculty, students and staff. Our websites also appeal to the broader community, both locally and internationally, as we share our unique digital collections with the world.

As a part of the library’s web team, you will design useful, usable and accessible web products. The team will support you in this by providing an agile workflow (currently based on Kanban) and foundational tools (Redmine for issue tracking, Git and Subversion for version control), and you will have the opportunity to contribute to this framework. You will also be involved in user research, process development and improvement, and communication with stakeholders.

Along with the foundational tools mentioned above, our team uses a number of advanced tools, including a CSS preprocessor (Sass), a deployment tool (Phing), a frontend task runner (Gulp), and a style guide tool (Pattern Lab), among others. We do not expect you to know these things coming in, but to be excited to learn about them (we still are!).
