Ingenuity wasn't born overnight.
For more than 30 years, libraries have used SirsiDynix technologies to bring the power of their collections to their communities. Our story began when Northwestern University developed a system to automate its library card catalogs in the 1960s. Since then, we have been a committed partner to libraries around the world, employing technology that allows librarians to do more than just keep track of their collection. Today, more than 23,000 library facilities in more than 70 countries use our products and services to bring the power of knowledge and information to 300 million users worldwide.
As stated in the American Library Association's 2010 State of America's Libraries Report, "The local library, a traditional source of free access to books, magazines, CDs and DVDs, has become a lifeline, offering technology training and workshops on topics that ranged from resume-writing to job-interview skills."
Libraries today are more than buildings full of books. As the needs of the people and communities they serve have substantially changed, libraries have rapidly responded. Because of their unchanging commitment to providing people access to information, libraries continue to be information leaders around the world. Every member of the SirsiDynix team is proud to be a part of that commitment, developing technologies that makes access to information possible in ways we never imagined.
SirsiDynix develops technology with the philosophy that the tools you use today should not hinder you from achieving your goals tomorrow. SirsiDynix is proud to create these industry-leading tools, for more libraries than any other vendor in the world, for the benefit of libraries and communities everywhere.
At SirsiDynix, we are committed to our library customers and the communities they serve. Together, with libraries, we help communities thrive by connecting people with library resources that educate and inspire. Our commitment extends beyond software and technical support -- it means genuine service, to our libraries and to the industry.
Every member of the SirsiDynix team makes that commitment a reality through:
- Developing and delivering robust technology for library staff and users
- Providing dedicated service beyond the software
- Cultivating a community of SirsiDynix librarians to ensure a bright future for libraries everywhere.

I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at SirsiDynix.Interview Details
The hiring process took longer than I had expected. The upside to that is they do a good job of vetting their potential employees. The downside is obvious; it takes forever to find out if you'll be offered a position. They start with an assessment, move on to a phone interview, and then you get to go in for an interview with the hiring manager/director. When you go in, you get to retake the assessment so that they know it was your score and not someone taking it for you. If you are able to make it past all of that, you get to submit references and then the offer comes after. Overall, it was a pleasant experience in spite of how long it took. They were excellent at keeping in-touch with me throughout the process to let me know what was happening.Interview Questions

- The most unexptected question was unique to the position I was interviewing for. It was, "If Utah were to annex a state, which state would it be, what would it be called, and what would the motto be?" Answer Question
