United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
Washington, D.C.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is looking for an innovative and
passionate individual to join our team and inspire citizens and leaders

With the primary mission of Rescuing the Evidence, the Office of Collections
is currently seeking a skilled Application Developer to enhance accessibility
and management of our digitized historical collection.

  
This position is located in the Digital Collections Division of the Office of
Collections. The growing digital collection comprises tens of millions of
image files, tens of thousands of hours of video and audio media, hundreds of
thousands of descriptions of items in our Collection, and several sources of
metadata. The Digital Collections Division endeavors to provide better user
interfaces to support those using the Collection via the web and by internal
staff. The public face of the work can be seen at Collections Search at
http://collections.ushmm.org

  
This is a full-time donated position (non-Federal) paid with the Museum's
private funds with a two year work assignment. Salary is commensurate with
experience.

  
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

  
Design, develop, and implement tools and systems that relate to processing,
identification, and access to the digitized historical assets and databases
held by or overseen by the Office of Collections.

  
Develop software systems to enhance access to Collections materials including
digitized archival materials, photographs, and oral histories, historical
film, Museum objects, and various databases and sources of metadata. The work
consists of software and user interface design for new projects as well as
maintenance, modification, and refactoring of existing systems.

  
Use systems, tools, and approaches such as modern programming tools (e.g.
Java, Python, PHP); contemporary MVC (model-view-controller) frameworks as
embodied in systems such as Ruby on Rails; JQuery/JavaScript; Linux shell
scripting; TDD/BDD (test-driven development, behavior-driven development) and
code reviews; and source-code control (e.g. git, svn).

  
Plan and develop methods of operation to effectively work with metadata and
use metadata transformation, search, discovery, and user interfaces for
Collections cataloging materials.

Modify, customize, and deploy open source and commercial software systems such
as Blacklight (the Ruby on Rails application) and ResourceSpace (an open
source PHP-based digital asset management system), and other systems. Populate
and query Apache Solr, an open source search engine. Use and develop APIs.

  
Improve maintainability, performance, security, using refactor and update
systems, and maintain conformance with the community of users of each system.

  
Test and monitor systems for proper operation.

  
Implement test-driven development and/or behavior-driven development systems
to ensure proper operation.

  
Perform other duties as assigned.

  
MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS

  
Experience with at least one MVC-oriented development framework such as Ruby
on Rails, Laravel, Django, Symfony, or similar.

  
Experience developing and deploying applications using at least two
contemporary programming and web development languages such as Ruby, PHP,
Python, and/or server-side and/or client-side JavaScript. Experience
developing and modifying web applications and command-line shell programs.

  
Understanding of good software development practices. Experience with
refactoring existing installed systems in order to enhance feature sets or
upgrade to newer versions.

  
Experience with theory and practice of relational databases such as MySQL
and/or SQL Server.

  
Familiarity with the Linux command line and shells (e.g. bash). Experience
developing and deploying production systems in a Linux environment.

  
Familiarity with source code control and collaborative development systems
(e.g. git, svn).

  
Ability to learn and use metadata standards of representation and exchange
that relate to library or collections systems, such as MARC, EAD, METS, MODS,
TEI and other XML and JSON standards or guidelines.

  
Experience writing code for production-quality, complex systems.
