Students, researchers and university teachers expect TU Delft Library’s scholarly communication and repository services to be of the highest quality. Which is why we are migrating our entire repository infrastructure to a new open access system. Embracing recommendations such as those from the COAR Next Generation Repositories report we will enhance usability, technical capabilities and interactive user engagement of our repository. Leading the code-based development work, you will play a key role in migrating and embedding this new repository.
Putting your keen interest in open science and repositories to good use, you research emerging trends, define architectures and develop new functionality and API integrations. Your eagerness to learn helps you take advantage of the latest developments, securing innovative solutions to benefit the library, the university and the scholarly community as a whole.
Working with the senior technical developer, a project manager, the UX officer and the research infrastructures coordinator, you’ll integrate new functionality based on requirements gathered from users and library staff. You will also maintain and improve the technical aspects of the repository, ensuring that applications and servers are up-to-date and secure.

Challenge. Change. Impact!
TU Delft Library is the largest technical-scientific library in the Netherlands, a physical and virtual meeting place. The Library helps to find valuable knowledge needed for education and research, and to publish and store the knowledge generated at TU Delft. We believe it is important that knowledge is easily accessible and freely available to everyone. In this way, knowledge can flow freely and TU Delft's knowledge can become valuable to others. The Library is also a place where everyone can study in peace and quiet. This fits in with our inclusive organisation. The Library has chosen three strategic themes to guide its daily activities. 1) Open Science. We make an important contribution to TU Delft's broad strategic programme "Open Science - Research and Education in the Open Era". 2) Visibility and impact. With our expertise and tools in the field of research data management, research intelligence and publishing, we increase the findability, visibility and impact of TU Delft knowledge. 3) Inspiring learning and working environment. Through stimulating programming, we show how freely available and reliable knowledge makes life richer. This makes the Library a place where you can find new ideas and insights.
