In Getty Digital, we are building the most advanced data architecture in the field of cultural heritage. Using Linked Data principles along with international and web standards, we are unifying and combining collections, research, and scholarly information into a common representation for internal and external uses. Working on a team with five other developers, you will be helping to manage some of the most unique sets of information and digital assets in the museum and library world.   We are looking for a software engineer with strong Python skills and a good knowledge of extract, transform and load (ETL) processes who can help us pull data from source systems and move it throughout our ecosystem. To perform this mission, we rely on a microservice-based architecture that is containerized using Docker and deployed to a Kubernetes cloud environment. We use the Python Flask framework to create custom APIs and the Celery task queuing system to coordinate all processes. The transform modeling takes proprietary schemas and turns them into web compatible representations that conform to standards such as Linked.Art, Web Annotations and IIIF.   As a software engineer on the Infrastructure team, you will work in partnership with team members and stakeholders on a variety of applications that provide public APIs and services for online collection pages, search interfaces, reconciliation tools and the delivery of digital media. These services can also apply to backend systems and integrations between internal vendor products to provide seamless and automated user experiences.   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, partnering with world-class scientists, curators, librarians, archivists, and academics.  We offer every other Friday off, excellent benefits, and a very strong dedication to balancing work and personal life.
