At Getty Digital, we're re-imagining how we can use software to provide access to our collections and research. We intend to provide a deeply , consistent experience for scholars, researchers, and as they explore the complex information held across the Getty.
At Getty Digital we believe that the best software is built by teams with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and ideas. We strive to provide a collaborative environment where all team members have the opportunity to learn, grow, and contribute to the software we build and our overall vision.
We're looking for a senior developer to work with our Research Application Development team. Our team is focused on initiatives for the discovery and presentation of cultural heritage information and is for the Getty Museum’s collection online, the Research Institute’s archival collections, the Getty Research Portal, the Getty vocabularies, and other initiatives. We are a highly collaborative team with regular co-working sessions, code reviews, and pair programming as common practices.
As a Sr. Software Engineer, you will report to the software architect, and have responsibilities that include helping to estimate, plan, and execute major software initiatives across the Getty; existing applications and projects; collaborating, and mentoring, and sharing expertise with a talented team of software developers to set an example of best practices. You will work with subject matter experts, UX researchers, designers, and other software developers, to build experiences that share information across the Getty and with the world.
Our software stack is Vue.js on the front end, with backend implementations in Python, data provided via APIs, and custom search interfaces using Elasticsearch. The Getty is dedicated to using Linked Open Data across our architecture, and to the use of IIIF for access to rich media assets.
The Getty is among the most prestigious cultural heritage organizations in the world, dedicated to furthering the study of the history of art. You will work on an amazing campus amongst fabulous art, architecture, and archives and with world-class scientists, curators, librarians, archivists, and academics.
