Welcome back SCCLD!
In short, we aim to create the best possible experiences.
As a company, we provide software for libraries. This includes the core software that every library needs, as well as a variety of additional web-based and cloud based tools. No matter where you start in SirsiDynix, you will play a valuable role in creating the best possible experience for any user of our innovative software solutions, whether that person is a library patron or a librarian.
As an employer, it is our goal to provide the best possible experience for anyone we hire. Whether you are with us for two years or twenty, we want you to gain valuable expertise and knowledge that will help you get to your dream job, even if that dream job eventually takes you somewhere else. As importantly, we want you to enjoy what you do and look forward to doing it each day.
When employees are asked what they like best about working for SirsiDynix, the most frequent response is one of two things (and sometimes both): I love the people I work with or I enjoy solving complex problems on a daily basis. Of course, we offer competitive pay, benefits and perks, but our greatest advantage as an employer comes from these two elements.
SirsiDynix serves a unique industry of dedicated professionals who are passionate about what they do. In turn, we owe it to them to be passionate about what we do. There is no role that is unimportant in achieving our goal of creating great experiences, even if you are not serving in a technical role.
One typically doesn’t become a librarian on a whim or as a temporary career option. Like teachers and others who are devoted to serving the public, librarians are often librarians for life. What better type of customer to partner with?
And with the myriad of career opportunities out there, it takes a lot to attract and keep talented people. But those who come to SirsiDynix and stay are not only knowledgeable and skilled in their respective fields, but they are also open to learning new things and sharing their expertise with others. Whether you are an entry-level analyst in Customer Support or a senior software engineer in Development (or somewhere in between), you have the opportunity to both learn and teach on an ongoing basis.
After 37 years in business, you’d think we had it all figured out. In fact, the library industry is changing more rapidly now than it has since the introduction of computerized cataloging decades ago. With the rise of ebooks and other electronically deliverable content, mobile devices, and accessibility of information through the intranet, libraries face challenges that we have the opportunity to help them overcome.
But it’s not as simple as developing and providing innovative solutions using the newest technologies. Our customers often vary greatly in needs and wants, and many factors must be considered when designing and building the best possible solution or feature. Whether you are dedicated to developing the products, installing and supporting the products, selling and marketing the products, or supporting the company in an administration role, you’ll be constantly challenged to grow and learn.
Like most companies, we offer a wide range of benefits and perks. The list below is not all-inclusive and is for the USA only. If you are interested in career opportunities outside the USA and have questions about benefits offerings, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

I have been working at SirsiDynix full-time (More than 10 years)
Great balance of work and home.
Benefits are good but not great. They tend to hire at the entry level rather than going for more experienced workers.
Advice to Management
Make sure you keep good talent.
I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at SirsiDynix (Lehi, UT) in July 2014.
