Job Description The Public Knowledge Project at Simon Fraser University (http://pkp.sfu.ca) is seeking a Software Developer to join our team in providing the leading open source platform for running academic journals, books, and conferences. Reporting to the Associate Director of Development, PKP Software Developers are responsible for designing, developing, and implementing clear and secure software solutions for a variety of PHP-based applications.

We are looking for a developer who can help us support SWORD, an AtomPub profile, by implementing a server-side implementation in PHP. This implementation will be integrated into Open Journal Systems (OJS), our flagship software, in order to permit OJS to receive submissions via the SWORD protocol.

This is a fixed-term contract with a probationary period and good potential for continuing work. Compensation is 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).

Please submit your application to Kevin Stranack, Managing Director, PKP (kstranac@sfu.ca). Posting will remain open until filled.
