The University of California, Riverside (UCR) Libraries is seeking nominations
and applications for an experienced, energetic, and innovative professional to
fill the position of Web Developer and User Interface Designer in the Web
Services and Design Unit of the Information Technology and Systems Division.
Reporting to the Associate University Librarian for Information Technology and
Systems, the Web Developer and User Interface Designer will provide technology
services to the UCR University Libraries organization and will have strong
graphic design, website, and editorial skills. Duties include, but are not
limited to, supporting, designing, and developing internal and public
websites, web-based applications, social media sites, and multimedia content.
Innovative applications will include new initiatives in digital collections,
scholarly communication, and resource discovery.
The Web Developer and User Interface Designer will work closely with the
Libraries' Web Development Management Team, and will operate by developing,
enhancing, testing, and using repeatable and well-documented processes and
procedures to achieve an efficient, reliable, and sustainable web services
environment. Best practices and security are included in all our efforts.
Teamwork, collaboration, and the ability to tactfully communicate and share
ideas with an interdisciplinary group of staff, patrons, and colleagues is
essential. Our environment is dynamic, challenging, and requires the ability
to handle shifting priorities. Occasional efforts outside of normal business
hours may be required.
Located an hour drive to the east of Los Angeles, an hour drive west of Palm
Springs and the Coachella Valley, an hour drive east of ocean beaches, an hour
and half drive north of San Diego, and an hour's drive south of mountain ski
resorts, UCR is located in an area of dramatic landscapes and equally rich
cultural traditions. The University is a dynamic, aggressively-developing land
grant research institution dedicated to preparing its diverse student body to
be successful competitors in the world marketplace of ideas. UCR boasts the
first new School of Medicine to open on the West Coast in 43 years; a new
School of Public Policy; and the Bourns College of Engineering, ranked 10th in
the world according to an international ranking organization.
The UCR Libraries is a critical partner in preparing UCR's students to be
globally competitive while simultaneously preparing them for careers in the
Inland Empire and beyond. The mission of the UCR Libraries is no less than to
bring the world's information resources to the UCR community and to ensure
that UCR students, faculty, and staff have the skills to fully exploit those
resources to change the world for the better.
