We know that sometimes people can be put off applying for a job if they think they can’t tick every box. But we realise the ‘perfect candidate’ doesn’t exist. If you're excited about working for us and can do most of what we are looking for, go ahead and apply. You could be exactly what we need!
We’re ideally looking for someone with a good working knowledge of:
- HTML, including HTML5
- CSS, including CSS3.
- XML and JSON
About the role
In this role, you will be helping with the continued design and development of highly scalable, robust and responsive software platforms in a cloud environment, underpinning the Historical Texts (https://historicaltexts.jisc.ac.uk) and Journal Archives (https://journalarchives.jisc.ac.uk) services and related services and projects. As such, you will be required to work across a broad range of development activities and across several disciplines.
From day to day you will be involved in all aspects of design and development of our platforms, developing new web applications or adding new feature to harness our media and metadata, testing and execution of bug fixes, or investigation into prospective data sources and how they might be integrated into the UI alongside our existing collections.
