Application Developer for high profile project at the Art Institute of Chicago (4D)  

position filled

The Art Institute of Chicago is seeking a web application developer willing to learn and work with the 4D programming language and database management system.


The Art Institute of Chicago is maintaining and expanding a custom-built collection management system called CITI, based on 4D. CITI is a client-server application which serves as a user interface and information database for all the Collections’ daily operations.

CITI is a complex and mature system, based on a unique, highly structured schema that maximizes the flexibility of the application.

In our near future plans, CITI will rely on a separate, Java-based Digital Asset Management System (DAMS) to manage digital files and metadata, with which it will communicate by means of a REST API. CITI itself provides access to several client applications, maintained by other team members, via a SOAP API.


We expect the candidate to go through a first learning phase where he or she can get comfortable with the language, data architecture and coding conventions that make up CITI, as well as the ties to other applications and the bug tracking system in use, TestTrack.

Past the learning curve, the candidate will provide technical and strategic support in planning and developing new features, debugging, maintaining, expanding and documenting the CITI code and data architecture; proposing and discussing strategies with other team members; exploring and evaluating new software and plug-ins.

This work will initially be supervised by a senior CITI developer, but eventually the candidate should be able to perform tasks independently, especially critical ones such as deploying code to production or promptly fixing outstanding bugs.

Our goals for CITI for the next few years are to make the CITI API more flexible; expand its UI capability by means of web areas and Javascript frameworks; and rebuild some major areas in order to tie CITI in with the new DAMS.

The candidate might occasionally provide support for other applications and RDBMS’s that manage the Museum’s data flow, mostly based on Java, PHP, MySQL and Solr. Understanding of the data architecture of the future DAMS and the ties between the two systems will be very important.

This position reports to the Director of Application Services, Collections, and will work tightly with 3 other team members.


We are looking for a skilled developer with previous experience in programming languages such as PHP, Java, Python or Visual Basic. A certain level of involvement in developing an application throughout the data, business and presentation layers in a collaborative environment is also required. Understanding of SQL and relational databases is very important. Knowledge of HTML, JavaScript and CSS will be very helpful. Previous experience in 4D is highly wished but not mandatory. 4D training will be provided if necessary.

We expect the candidate to be flexible enough to adapt to a system with peculiar characteristics, such as an IDE that encompasses a database, a procedural language and a WYSIWYG interface builder, as well as a compiler and a code editor. The candidate should be able to understand the ways to achieve the best results with it.

The candidate should be able to grasp the complexity and diversity of the CITI ecosystem and deliver stable, secure, thoroughly tested and documented code for a high-profile, public-domain service.

A developer with solid technical skills as well as ideas, who likes challenging and innovative projects and is committed to the Art Institute’s vision, is our ideal candidate.

The candidate will expect to be working with a friendly, small team, with an excellent technical knowledge and an open mind to new ideas. He or she will enjoy a great work/life balance, generous benefits, a well groomed office aquarium and a rewarding everyday experience.


The Art Institute of Chicago is an equal opportunity, equal access employer fully committed to achieving a diverse workforce.
