The Dartmouth Library is looking for a new Manager of Digital Scholarly Software and Systems to lead and inspire a team focused on developing sustainable core digital scholarly services. We are looking for a leader who values diverse perspectives and backgrounds, who can thoughtfully and humanely build organizational capacity, and who is committed to building sustainable, community-engaged, and culturally-informed systems.

The technology teams in the Dartmouth Library design, build, and implement solutions in support of overall Library objectives, enabling a range of research, teaching, and community engagement activities. We manage and support a blend of commercially hosted platforms, open source technologies, and home-grown code. Our Manager of Digital Scholarly Software and Systems will guide a team that oversees the development and software life-cycle of user-centered solutions for the publication, sharing, and preservation of dynamic digital humanities, computational social science, digital science, and other digital scholarly projects. In addition to custom systems, such tools might include ArchiveSpace, Dataverse, Drupal, Omeka, Scalar, IIF, and more. Especially as we look to implement open, generous, and community-developed systems, we are looking for a leader who is motivated to guide a dedicated technology team, partner with colleagues across the Library and Dartmouth, and engage the broader community of academic library technologists engaged in this work.

As we continue to evolve our approach to the development of scholarly software and systems, we are especially interested in creative technologists committed to and experienced with user-centered and accessible design approaches, community-oriented software development practices, and modern approaches to software development and workflow.
