Description

Come help UC Davis redefine the future of library services! If you are a new developer hoping to make a difference in how we find and preserve information for future generations, we have a job that you might be interested in!

UCD is a leader at working with RDF data, developing new ways of integrating content from across the campus, and is launching a new data services program.  In every area of digital libraries, we are pushing at the boundaries of what is expected.

Ever wonder what it would mean to combine usage data from across discovery systems to build new recommending services tailored to individual researchers? So do we! Did you ever wonder if we really need a traditional discovery layer for our local catalog? We do too! Join us to be part of the conversation! 

UC Davis is one of the leading research institutions in the world, and is within easy commuting distance of the San Francisco Bay Area or Sacramento. 

This position develops and maintains a data refinery to facilitate bibliographic data analysis and linking. You'll be responsible for conversion of MARC data into XML and RDF formats; and support BIBFRAME and schema.org databases. You'll modify data descriptions, support catalog transactions, and assist in data integrations within UCD and across the UC campuses. You will conduct extract, transform, and load (ETL) operations on our Ex Libris Aleph catalog database.

About you: You’ll have 3 years’ experience in Java, Ruby, Python or PHP and associated application frameworks such as Hibernate, Spring, and Ruby on Rails, and demonstrable experience in one other of these languages. You will have experience in the use of code repositories and versioning environments, such as GitHub, Subversion, or BitBucket. And, you’ll have experience creating, editing, and executing transformations on XML and JSON data.

The position to the ITIS Department Head and represents the Library in UC-wide bibliographic systems committees. Salary: Programmer IV ($49,786 - $89,615)
