The Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) is looking for a new lead developer.
At MITH we do Digital Humanities: we work with the latest tech to create, analyze, and publish cultural heritage data. We're no-profit and committed to open source development.
tl;dr here's the job post: http://mith.umd.edu/job/lead-developer/
We've recently been on the news for our work on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, of which we published high quality images of the original manuscript and a detailed scholarly transcription. All modeled with Linked Open Data technologies and rendered directly in the browser.
We have a digital forensics team recovering literary works from old hardware and a good collection of vintage computers (check out a recent NPR interview).
We have new projects starting and we're looking for a skilled developer to lead the team in identifying and applying emergent technologies and best practices appropriate to our research project. As a lead, you'd be in the position to set a lot of the technical agenda at MITH.
The University of Maryland offers great benefits (including 24 days of paid leave) and is at a 20 minute metro ride from downtown DC.
Please let me know if you find this an interesting opportunity - I'd be happy to answer questions about the position and about working at MITH :)
