Front-End Web Developer/Designer, NYPL Labs

The New York Public Library is recruiting a Front-End Web Developer/Designer, NYPL Labs. Degree: Bachelor's degree in Web Development, Computer Science, Digital Design, or a related field (or equivalent experience).

Here's an excerpt from the ad:

Work will be situated in midtown Manhattan within NYPL's larger web group, but will focused on projects that break new ground in digital humanities research and/or facilitate new forms of networked participation in library activity. Projects may range from building crowdsourcing tools for enhancing library collections, rethinking established genres such as archival finding aids, or developing multi-modal (potentially cross-institutional) digital archives of special collections material.

Some projects will be proof-of-concept prototypes aimed at hatching ideas that might eventually be applied more broadly across the library, others will be fully realized applications that become staple resources in the NYPL web environment. All will place you at the intersection of scholarly, library and technological innovation taking place at one of the world' greatest public research institutions, tapped into one of the worlds largest and most creatively dynamic urban populations.
