Staff/Faculty Positions

Ruby on Rails Software Developer (Contingent I)

Position number:  062411

  • Opened Date: June 25, 2015
  • Closing Date: July 10, 2015

The UMD Libraries are upgrading their Digital Collections and Asset Management system to Fedora Commons Repository 4. The Software Developer will stand up our first Ruby on Rails and Hydra framework based application that will serve as the primary interface for staff administration of metadata and content in the Fedora 4 repository. In addition to agile development of the application, the developer will establish the initial code base, local development environment, and RHEL/VM server deployment environment.

The UMD Libraries would like to leverage the growing number of Ruby on Rails based applications that are created and supported by the community of open source development for library applications. The software developer will jumpstart adoption of Ruby on Rails as a core supported technology among the permanent developer team who have Java and Fedora 4 experience. This involves documentation, training, and support for the full software lifecycle for building Rails applications from development through promotion to production systems.
