Revs Infrastructure Developer, Stanford University Libraries

  
Classification - System Software Developer

Position: Double posted at the 4P3 and 4P4 levels

  
Job Objective:

  
Stanford University Libraries (SUL) is seeking a talented software engineer to
support the digitization, collection delivery and collaboration components of
the Revs Program at Stanford. This is a two-year, grant-funded position.

  
This position is part of the Revs Program at Stanford
(http://revs.stanford.edu). This program is dedicated to developing an
understanding of the impact of the automobile on society, culture and
technology. The Revs Program at Stanford was founded to inspire a new trans-
disciplinary field connecting the past, present and future of the automobile.
The Revs Program fosters an intellectual community bridging the humanities and
fine arts, social sciences, design, science and engineering, and the
professions. As a part of that effort, SUL will support the dissemination of
scholarly research on the automobile; provide digital access to a collection
of over two million items relating to automotive history, racing and
technology; and, develop a system and service to develop and sustain an online
automotive community. Members of the team will play a role in building the
world's leading center on the study of the impact of the automobile on the
20th and 21st century.

  
The Repository Developer will primarily develop digital library software to
enable management, preservation, and online discovery of Revs materials. This
will involve deployment of a new repository and web application using the
Hydra technology stack (http://projecthydra.org). The Repository Developer
will be a core contributor to the open source Hydra project in the process of
building the Revs digital repository.

  
The Repository Developer will be a member of a core team dedicated to the
successful completion of this project, and will work closely with the project
manager, Revs web developer, the information architect, digital library
infrastructure developers, the user experience designer and other developers
involved in digital library initiatives. This particular project is highly
collaborative, and will involve interactions with developers, scholars and
staff across Stanford and from other institutions. As a member of SULAIR's
digital library application development team, the Repository Developer will
contribute to the overall development of the Stanford Library's web and
digital library infrastructure, and help plan, specify, and build the
technologies needed to support the University's goal of ubiquitous access to
scholarly information.

  
Primary Responsibilities:

  
• Design and deploy a world class digital access system for the Revs
collection.

  
• Leverage and further develop SULAIR's existing work on hydra
(http://projecthydra.org/) and Blacklight (http://projectblacklight.org) to
serve as a full text, image and media (audio/video) delivery environment.

  
• Provide analysis and software engineering support for implementing and
leveraging the open source Fedora framework, leveraging both XML and RDF-based
metadata.

  
• Enable cross-linking of Revs materials through persistent & well-structured
methods, allowing researchers to build associative graphs of related materials
in a rigorous and machine-actionable manner.

• Leverage and further develop existing infrastructure to create a text, image
& media file processing pipeline for digital Revs content; as materials are
digitized by Revs and its agents, this infrastructure will ensure the orderly
management of the files and their associated metadata; the processing of these
files for activities such as optical character recognition (OCR), and the
transfer of a copy of these files to SULAIR for long-term preservation and
accessioning into Stanford's digital library.

• Leverage and further develop existing infrastructure to preserve Revs
content in the Stanford Digital Repository.

  
Required Qualifications and Demonstrated Experience:

  
• Expertise in Ruby and Ruby on Rails, both for application development and in
engineering an enhanced framework, including plug-ins, engines and gems, for
developing library and repository applications.

• Demonstrated ability to develop new programming skills quickly, and to grasp
unfamiliar architectures and application designs quickly.

• Demonstrated ability to write solid, simple, elegant code both independently
and in a team-programming environment and within schedule limitations.

• Demonstrated expertise with XML and related tools and technologies (e.g.,
XML schema, schema management and databases, XSLT, X-forms).

• Experience with relational database design and management. Experience
implementing database applications for SQL Server, Oracle, or MySQL.

• Demonstrated ability to work independently on a project from specification
to launch; communicate effectively, orally and in writing; and work with all
levels of staff, vendors, and consultants.

• Demonstrated proficiency applying best practices to technical projects,
especially test-first development and automated testing. Also must make
effective use of team collaboration tools, build management, and version
control systems.

• Quick and self-bootstrapping learner. Particularly adept at quickly learning
new scripting and programming languages.

• Four-year college degree or equivalent with five to seven years demonstrated
experience required.

• At the 4P4 level, more than seven relevant experience plus demonstrated
success in software engineering for a digital asset management / digital
repository system required.

  
  
Desired Knowledge and Skills:

  
• Advanced degree desired

• Demonstrated success participating in community-based open source projects,
specifically those relevant to the Stanford Libraries' Digital Library
architecture, such as Fedora, Blacklight, Solr or Hydra.

• Demonstrated success participating in and contributing to open source
software development projects.

• Demonstrated experience with library applications and technology, including
experience participating in relevant library open source efforts.

• In-depth knowledge of library policies and practice, metadata standards and
the scholarly communication framework

• Familiarity with the process of digitizing images, text, audio and video in
cultural heritage institutions.

• Familiarity with RDF, semantic web, and linked data technologies and
practices

• Familiarity with XML schemas used to describe digitized cultural heritage
materials, such as TEI, MODS, METS, and EAD.

• Prior, successful experience working as a professional in an academic and/or
library environment.

• Interest and enthusiasm in the social, technical and economic history of the
automobile.
