From the job advertisements:

Would you like to build online services to support higher and further 
education? 

We need a developer to help implement and maintain innovative virtual library 
services, delivered to higher education institutions across the UK. This is an 
excellent opportunity to join a talented and friendly group of software 
engineers, helping to develop our services further and contribute to new 
projects. We do object-oriented programming, keep our data in relational 
databases and search servers, and use web frameworks to design our interfaces. 
Most of us develop on Linux or Mac platforms, and our services are delivered 
from a mix of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Enterprise Solaris servers. 

You should be a graduate in a computing-related discipline, or have relevant 
experience, with significant experience of web application development. Your 
skills will include object-oriented programming in a language such as Java or 
Perl.

Knowledge of web services or machine-to-machine interfaces (e.g. SRU, OAI-PMH, 
REST), repository software (e.g. DSpace, Eprints), would be an advantage - but 
most important is initiative along with good analysis and problem-solving 
skills, so that you can react in an informed and creative way to problems and 
new requirements.

Benefits of working at the University include flexible working, an excellent 
pension, career prospects and generous holiday provision.

This post is on a fixed term basis for 2 years.
