About the project
We are looking for a Node.js Developer whose mandate will be to help shape the development of a new open source software platform for digital scholarly reading. The project team is small but focused: a product manager, two developers and a designer, a marketing manager, and the executive director of the Rebus Foundation. We may also have support from external design agencies. The clients for the software will include academic libraries, with students and scholars as end users, mostly in higher education.
We are looking for a colleague who is passionate about open education, web technology, and digital books, just like we are. We also want someone who is a problem solver, self starter, and curious and keen learner.
Among other things, the developer should:
have 3 to 5 years in back-end development
be proficient in Node.js
be experienced with RESTful APIs
have a good understanding of relational databases
be in line with the open source/free software ethos
have a good understanding of scholarly reading
Note: You should apply even if you don’t feel that your credentials are a 100% match with the position description. We are looking for relevant skills and experience, not a checklist that exactly matches the job description itself.
