PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE PROJECT – SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS
(February, 2015)

The Public Knowledge Project at Simon Fraser University (http://pkp.sfu.ca) is seeking full-time and part-time Software Developers to join our team in providing the leading open source platform for running academic journals, books, and conferences. Reporting to the Lead Technical Architect, PKP Software Developers are responsible for designing, developing, and implementing clear and secure software solutions for a variety of PHP-based applications.  Duties also include conducting system analysis and recommending changes or enhancements, actively participating in an international developer community, conferring with users to better understand system requirements and usability issues, investigating problem areas, and general troubleshooting.

Tired of commuting to the office everyday from 9 to 5? As a member of the PKP team, you are able to work where you want, anywhere in the world, during the hours that work best for you (apart from some regularly scheduled team meetings). You will have opportunities to travel, participate in conferences and workshops, and interact with a growing international community of users in the academic, software development, and publishing worlds. This is a fixed-term contract with a probationary period and good potential for continuing work. Salary is negotiable based on qualifications and experience.

Qualifications include:
•	experience with current web development technology, especially PHP and Javascript.
•	experience with SQL (esp. MySQL and PostgreSQL), Apache, and Linux server administration.

Additional consideration given for:
•	knowledge of, or experience with, PKP software (e.g. Open Journal Systems) or a similar open source project is valuable but not necessary.
•	enthusiasm for open source projects and understanding of the benefits of openness in general (open access, open standards, open data, open access to information, etc.)
•	experience with current user interface and user experience best practices, using AJAX, JQuery, CSS, and/or similar tools.

Interested applicants should send the following:
•	a cover letter containing a summary of their experience, and at least two references;
•	a copy of their resume; and
•	code samples, ideally in PHP, ideally open-source (e.g. via a Github repository).

to Brian Owen, Associate University Librarian ([log in to unmask]). Postings will remain open until filled.
