Data Repository Software Developer (IT Architect II)
The University of Arizona Libraries’ Research Engagement office seeks a Data Repository Developer to support the University of Arizona Research Data Repository (ReDATA). This research data repository is intended to be a long-term archive containing the version of record of publicly-shared datasets and software produced by University of Arizona researchers. This position will work closely with the Research Data Management Specialist to build capacity for data preservation for materials deposited in ReDATA. This includes creating and modifying Python-based software to automate data cleaning and packaging, using web APIs to pull data and other information together as part of a preservation workflow, creating and updating documentation for these tools, and assisting ReDATA staff in deploying these tools on ReDATA’s cloud infrastructure. The incumbent will be responsible for working with the ReDATA team to complete a resilient, well-documented pipeline for data preservation. This position is time-limited with a six month duration.

Work may take place on-site at the Main Library in Tucson or remotely (candidate must physically reside in Arizona).

This is an extended temporary (ETE) position with an expected duration of six months.
