Tech­ni­sche Infor­ma­ti­ons­bi­blio­thek (TIB)

TIB, being part of the Leib­niz Research Asso­ci­ation, is one of the largest tech­nical inform­a­tion cen­ters in Ger­many, hav­ing three main func­tions:
1. Act­ing in the capa­city of the Ger­man National Lib­rary of Sci­ence and Tech­no­logy, our for­ward-look­ing ser­vices secure the infra­struc­tural require­ments for provid­ing research­ers in sci­ence and industry with high-qual­ity inform­a­tion and lit­er­at­ure.
2. Car­ry­ing out cut­ting edge research to fur­ther expand TIB’s role as a Ger­man inform­a­tion centre for the digit­isa­tion of sci­ence and tech­no­logy.
3. Offer lib­rary ser­vices for the Leib­niz Uni­versity Han­nover.

Soft­ware Developer

Work­ing field:

The Team of the Lab for Non-Tex­tual Mater­i­als (NTM) devel­ops user-centered, innov­at­ive solu­tions in order to make sci­entific videos, research data and research soft­ware bet­ter find­able, access­ible, inter­op­er­able and re-usable.

As a soft­ware developer in the Lab for Non-Tex­tual Mater­i­als, you will be respons­ible for the mod­ern­iz­a­tion and stra­tegic devel­op­ment of the video ana­lysis pro­cesses in our portal for sci­entific videos - the TIB AV Portal ( In addi­tion to exist­ing speech, text and image recog­ni­tion mod­ules, it also includes com­mon semantic ana­lysis com­pon­ents (Named Entity Link­ing):

  • Tech­nical con­cep­tion and sys­tem sup­port
  • Integ­ra­tion of new ana­lysis mod­ules as well as sup­port and exten­sion of the entire ana­lysis frame­work includ­ing inter­faces and work­flow man­age­ment
  • Pro­gram­ming in the field of video ana­lysis
  • Doc­u­ment­a­tion of the pro­ject and pre­par­a­tion for reuse by third parties
  • Con­cep­tual and cre­at­ive col­lab­or­a­tion in new pro­jects of the Lab NTM
  • Acquis­i­tion of Third party funds


  • Uni­versity degree (Bach­elor / Mas­ter or equi­val­ent) in Inform­at­ics, Com­puter Sci­ence, Media Inform­at­ics or related fields
  • Very good know­ledge and proven exper­i­ence in one or more of the fol­low­ing areas: auto­matic video ana­lysis, machine learn­ing, nat­ural lan­guage pro­cessing, semantic web tech­no­lo­gies
  • Excel­lent know­ledge of one or more mod­ern pro­gram­ming lan­guages (espe­cially Java, Python or C/C++) as well as proven exper­i­ence in soft­ware devel­op­ment and mod­ern meth­ods of soft­ware devel­op­ment (espe­cially Scrum, DevOps)
  • Strong interest in inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research and lib­rar­ies
  • Eager­ness in the use and main­ten­ance of open source soft­ware and soft­ware devel­op­ment in com­munit­ies using Git­Hub etc.
  • High degree of self-organ­isa­tion, exper­i­ence in work­ing inde­pend­ently, solu­tion ori­ent­a­tion, ini­ti­at­ive and team spirit
