Web Site Designer/Developer (Potential to be Hired at Senior or Principal Level)
University of Arizona
Tucson

The University of Arizona Libraries is looking for two creative, enthusiastic,
and dedicated individuals who are passionate about user-centered design and
interested in being part of a dynamic, collaborative environment at a large
academic library.

  
Our talented staff is energized by building and contributing to excellent user
experiences. With these positions we aim to improve the discoverability,
accessibility and usability of our digital products and services while
maintaining a strong focus on user-centered design.

  
As an academic library we are responsible for supporting multiple audiences
(undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, staff, community users,
and donors) while providing a broad range of collections and services. We need
to reflect the enormous value that our complex organization provides through
an intuitive and engaging web presence.

  
As a part of the library's web team, you'll have opportunities to do different
types of design work on a range of projects, and to work with departments
across the organization. You will be especially involved in supporting
Marketing Communications and Special Collections by designing websites that
promote library events, services, and resources.

  
Working closely with other designers, developers, and user experience and
communications professionals, you'll create useful, usable, and accessible web
products that help our users achieve their academic and personal goals.

  
You'll have support for your work and operate in a respectful environment
where we value risk-taking, learning, and open communication. We share
responsibility for our successes and failures, we see opportunities in
challenges, and we value diverse viewpoints and the learning that comes from
challenging our assumptions.

  
We have a great team committed to using the best tools and approaches to
support our work. We build web sites mobile-first, using HTML5, CSS3, and the
front-end build tools that work best for us. We make design decisions and test
our assumptions with the help of in-house user research and content strategy
experts. We take deliberate steps to back each other up in our work and we
share in successes and learn from failures together.

  
In addition to an agile workflow approach that is continuously being improved,
we use the communication and development tools that work best for us.
Currently we use Redmine for issue tracking, Git for version control and Gulp
and Sass for front-end development. We deploy new code often and iteratively
so that our work provides value to users sooner, and we have automated tools
that help us do so with confidence. Don't worry - we don't expect you to know
all the tools we use coming in, but we hope you'd be excited to learn! We're
always working on improving our workflow process and tools we use to get our
work done and we expect you to contribute to that endeavor.

position:

Web Site Designer/Developer: $16.78 - $22.04 Per Hour

Web Site Designer/Developer, Senior: $47,059 - $62,830 Annually
