Interested in creating and developing applications to support new, innovative ways to distribute academic digital scholarships, and contributing to the next generation of digital repository services? Want to have a real impact on the academic research community and beyond?  

University of Alberta Libraries (UAL) is looking to fill a Programmer Analyst position.

Join a library charged with managing an increasingly diverse ecosystem of digital materials, tools, and services. Become part of a dynamic team that is committed to the use of open source, community-based technologies, and to following best practices in software engineering (Agile, code review, continuous integration, web accessibility, etc). Be part of a unit that values continuous learning and the open sharing of ideas, and supports an environment that fosters respect and appreciation in the workplace.  

We are looking for a committed and knowledgeable Programmer Analyst. As a member of the Digital Initiatives and Information Technology Teams, you will develop and implement applications and tools to support a growing range of digital asset management use cases, including ingest, discovery, access, management, analysis, and preservation. We work with digital dissertations and theses, research data of many types, digitized library and archival materials, e-books, multimedia content, web archives, and other digital objects produced locally and abroad, along with metadata in many formats. You will be working on projects that focus on user experience, accessibility, sustainability, test-driven development, and peer-reviewed code management process. Many of our applications are built with open-source components with an eye to collaboration with peer institutions. The incumbent will have the opportunity and expectation to be an active member of those communities and to continue to develop the reputation of UAL as a leader and innovator in digital repositories and support for scholarship.

The team works primarily in Ruby on Rails and MySQL/PostgreSQL with Docker, with some Java components, and manages its code on Github. We are eager to learn more new technologies and trends that could be applied in library application development. We strive to adopt industry-standard solutions and strong adherence to code management and documentation practices to increase the sustainability of our work. Our application foundations are the user needs that we determine from user testing and we employ a design approach to our work.

Designs, develops and implements systems and interfaces to support monitoring and administering of DAMS and multimedia repository service;
Works with the repository service managers and stakeholders to provide consultation, specification and technical support to researchers and research groups to address their specific needs in depositing, managing and curating their collections within the repository service;
Follows standards and best practices and contributing to ongoing collaborative environment; finds improvement in these standards and practices (e.g. best practices for code management, deployment management, and online security).


Supports the design and development of the library’s Discovery Service to provide discovery and access to the library’s collections.
Understands and supports the Agile methodology of development and test processes (Scrum).
Understands and supports continuous integration.
Assists in the development or modification of configuration management plans, policies and procedures tailored to the complexity and scope of the development or operational systems for DAMS and other library services.
