"The California Digital Library (CDL) is a collaborative effort of the ten campuses of the University of California. As a UC systemwide library, CDL provides services to and on behalf of the UC system in partnership with the UC campus libraries. As a globally-connected digital library, CDL occupies a unique position between the local UC campuses and the global digital library infrastructure. The primary user base for CDL services and programs includes UC faculty, students, and library staff. The CDL is a unit within the UC Office of the President, has a staff of 70+ and is located in downtown Oakland.
The CDL's Publishing & Special Collections group develops and maintains production services that enable robust access to unique digital assets from the University of California (UC) and beyond. Through the development of advanced technologies and creative partnerships, we provide the UC scholarly community with innovative open access publication and distribution opportunities and aggregate world-class digital collections from libraries, archives, and museums throughout the State of California, serving an array of end users including researchers, scholars, students, and the general public. Reporting to the senior Product Manager, Publishing, the Publishing Systems Developer will work collaboratively with senior developers as well as product and service managers to build and maintain innovative open access (and mostly open source) scholarly publishing infrastructure. Key among these platforms are eScholarship (UC's open access publishing and institutional repository platform) and integrated submission management systems used by researchers and editors to produce and publish original academic journals and to make previously published works available to the world. The incumbent will contribute to all of these platforms and projects by developing new features, responding to bug reports, and managing regular maintenance. This position will also work collaboratively on new iterations of existing platforms, as well as evaluation and implementation of new open source solutions. The Publishing Systems Developer will also have ample opportunity to build connections between platforms and to participate in both intra- and cross-team pair programming projects. CDL welcomes and encourages diversity and seeks applications and nominations from individuals from underrepresented groups. CDL seeks to recruit and retain a diverse workforce as a reflection of our commitment to serve the people of California, to maintain the excellence of the University of California, and to offer our students richly varied disciplines, perspectives, and ways of knowing and learning. ..."
