The Center for HIV Information (CHI), a program of the University of California San Francisco, partners with government agencies, foundations, and international organizations to identify and develop information on HIV care, prevention, and policy. This information is disseminated to care providers, researchers, and policymakers nationally and worldwide through electronic media, including Internet and CD-ROM. CHI develops strategies for reaching those areas and individuals in greatest need of high-quality, practical information on HIV/AIDS and related coinfections.

CHI's staff covers editorial, technical, and administrative functions. CHI's projects contain thousands of documents managed using a Java/XML/XSLT and database-driven backend, as well as TeamSite, and the open source content management systems (CMS) Drupal and WordPress.

Core responsibilities:
Spacer

Under the supervision of the Production Manager, the Web Developer (WD) will be involved in technical and production aspects of work across CHI Web sites, CD-ROMs and other projects. A lead on development in Drupal 7, and a proprietary Java-based CMS, the WD will develop strategies that help achieve project goals on tight deadlines. The WD will have expertise in data management and search, familiarity with WordPress, and the ability to learn less familiar systems, such as TeamSite, quickly.

These efforts require being a member on multiple project teams. The WD must be able to develop an understanding of every CHI project in order to collaborate with CHI editors, project managers, and other project team members. The WD provides expertise on technical and production-related aspects of project work plans. The WD codes content for inclusion across platforms, creates user-customized and dynamic interfaces, checks formatting for adherence to project standards, and develops and edits XSLT, CSS, and PHP as needed. The incumbent will also perform other related duties.
