Web Developer

Come work for the Office of Research Computing!

If hired you will develop and maintain web applications for the the Office of Research Computing (https://rc.byu.edu), formerly known as the Fulton Supercomputing Lab. We have a wide variety of applications; some of them monitor hardware, visually map temperature and batch job data; integrate with many BYU web services or other interesting things. Some projects may be released as open source.

Starting pay range is $14-$17 per hour.

Fall/Winter: 16-20 hours per week
Spring/Summer: up to 40 hours per week

This is a student employment position.

  • Strong programmer
  • Able to work both Spring and Summer terms

  • Proficient in HTML and CSS
  • Comfortable working in a Linux environment


  • Familiarity with PHP, MySQL and JavaScript

Benefits of working for the Office of Research Computing

You will get to do real work and have real responsibilities. This is definitely not a job where you can sit around and do schoolwork.

You'll get to learn from employees who are exceptionally skilled. For example, your supervisor actively contributes to the design and development of the PHP language; others are Linux and hardware experts who regularly present at industry conferences.
