Stanford University Libraries and Academic Information Resources (SULAIR) is building an increasingly rich and complex set of geospatial information services and resources to support research, teaching and learning.

The GIS Software Developer will lead the technical effort to develop and support the GIS applications and infrastructure for SULAIR’s GIS programs, resources and patrons. The GIS developer will sit within and report to Digital Library Systems and Services unit within SULAIR, and work intimately with and directly support the programmatic activities of the Branner Earth Sciences Library, as well as closely related units within SULAIR and beyond. 


RESPONSIBILITIES
Web Application Development (60%)
-	Adopt, adapt, develop and maintain software to provide a Web-based geospatial discovery and access portal, using open source technologies in an inter-institutional, community-based, development effort. 
-	Help develop, enhance and maintain Map Gallery, a specialized discovery interface tailored to SULAIR’s public service and collection development program around maps; integrate this environment with the GIS discovery portal and/or SearchWorks, SULAIR’s overarching discovery layer. 
-	Integrate (either directly or by supporting integration efforts of others on campus) additional services into SULAIR’s GIS environment, supporting mapping and georeferencing applications, novel spatial visualization tools, mashups, and integration of gazetteers and third party GIS-based API’s. 

GIS Infrastructure Management and Administration (30%)
-	Help implement and manage SULAIR’s GIS infrastructure; this includes administration of specialized GIS applications (currently a mix of open source and proprietary systems), as well as account management and data administration. It also entails working with SULAIR’s server, database and network administrators to provision the necessary computing systems to support GIS services. GIS database administration will be a significant component of this work. 

Community Participation, Leadership and Consulting (10%)
-	Play an active role in higher education and GIS researcher community; represent Stanford in this community and the development of open source and consortial service efforts. Consult with technologists on campus about the best method to realize their projects’ GIS technical goals, and adapt SULAIR’s GIS services and infrastructure accordingly.

	Software engineering in Web-, solr-lucene and database-backed application environments, and experience in contributing to and/or defining the technical architecture of complex systems.
	Ruby, and Ruby on Rails, both for application development and in engineering an enhanced framework, including plug-ins, engines and gems, for developing and deploying applications. 
•	Scripting technologies such as Perl, PHP, Python, etc., or a demonstrated ability to learn them quickly. In-depth knowledge of HTML and related website development technologies and software (especially CSS and AJAX). Familiarity with Java and object-oriented programming and concepts is desired.

•	Networking and systems integration in a heterogeneous hardware (Linux, Windows) and software environment.
•	XML and related tools and technologies (e.g., XML schema, schema management and databases, XSLT, X-forms).
	Writing solid, simple, elegant code both independently and in a team-programming environment and within schedule limitations.
	Working collaboratively on a project from specification to launch and production operation; and working with multiple levels of staff, and colleagues at peer institutions and open source communities.
•	Agile software development practices and test driven development principles and methods, as well as best practices for software development overall.
	Curious, innovative, dynamic and thorough approach to software engineering; interest in participating in community-based, open source projects, and the technical, social and communication capabilities to do so effectively.
