The Royal Library, Copenhagen, is
looking for an employee to join our development team of 8 developers. The
Royal Library doubles as the National Library of Denmark and as Copenhagen
University Library, serving simultaneously as a major cultural institution,
public research library and library service provider for the Copenhagen
University community. The development team resides in the Department of
Digital Development and Dissemination and works with all aspects of software
development that support the digital library.
The position is permanent, full time and to be filled as soon as possible.
As part of the team you'll be expected to participate in a variety
of projects, but your main focus will be on the library
system complex comprising a vast integrated library system, a separate
discovery and delivery system, a user base, a link resolver and proxy server
The team you'll join conducts software development in the broadest sense -
from identfying specification requirements, designing system architecture and
modeling for programming, to testing and documentation.
Requirement specifications and system architecture are taks done in
collaboration with others, but we work independently in the implementation
phase, which means your personal responsibility for the quality of what we
develop is required.

• Knowledge of library systems (Alpeh, Primo, SFX)
• Experience with agile development processes.
• Experience with Perl and Java

preferably experience with REST-based web services.
**Expected personal qualities:**
You work well with colleagues across the academic spectrum.
You can stay focused and sustain a holistic approach.
You can alternate between working independently, being responsive, and work as
a team player to help "lift" your team.
We offer an exciting interdisciplinary work on the top floor of the Black
Diamond on the central Copenhagen harbour. This is an environment where
cultural heritage meets modern media and scholarly knowledge meets computer
science. Our working philosophy is that going to work should be fun. We offer
an inspiring environment with exciting projects, ongoing skills development,
agile development processes and good colleagues.
**Wages and employment**
The position is covered by the current agreement between the Ministry of
Finance and the collective bargaining organization pertaining to your
