From the ad:

Under the direction of the Faculty Project Investigator (PI), responsible for technical development and programming support for the METAscripta digital humanities project of the Knights of Columbus Vatican Film Library (VFL). The goal of the project is to build an online environment using IIIF technology, in which users will be able to search, discover, and research Vatican Manuscripts, digitized either from originals at the Vatican or from high resolution microfilms at Saint Louis University. IIIF technology functions through various open-sourced APIs and requires command-line programming of several virtual servers to support these. This position will build and integrate these servers using Amazon Web Services (AWS—Linux OS) and provide support in the development of other technical components of the project, including a MySQL database to enable a separate crowd-sourcing metadata template. The position also required writing IIIF manifests in JSON and managing digital images and derivatives in various file formats.
