Job Description:
The Technical Manager for the Stanford Digital Repository leads the  
development, operation, and continuous enhancement of the Stanford  
University Librariesí (SULís) preservation repository for digital  
information. The Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) provides  
preservation services to the students, faculty and researchers of the  
university, helping ensure the integrity and usability of data and  
digital information over decades to centuries for future research,  
teaching & learning. The SDR is integral to Stanfordís burgeoning  
digital library environment; it will be a critical component of the  
cyberinfrastructure that supports scholarship in the 21st century.

The Technical Manager for the SDR serves as chief architect and  
software development manager for the repository, as well as oversees  
its smooth operation and scaling to support tens of thousands of  
users, hundreds of millions of digital objects and petabytes of data.  
The position will manage a dedicated team of developers, analysts and  
operations staff, with a focus on growing the repository into a  
robust and reliable digital preservation infrastructure for the  
Libraries and the University.

This position also provides intellectual, technical and  
organizational leadership within Stanfordís broader digital library  
program. As a manager and architect within the Digital Libraries  
Systems and Services (DLSS) unit, the incumbent will help define,  
steer and deliver on the development of the library of the future at  
Stanford, a nationally and internationally recognized leader in this  
arena.

Responsibilities:
Determine the overall architecture, technologies, development  
practices and plan to meet the SDRís objectives, and manage a cross  
functional team of 8 - 12 developers, analysts and operational staff  
to that plan.
Ensure the rapid scaling and smooth operation of the SDR as trusted,  
reliable digital repository for the priceless data and intellectual  
assets of Stanford University.
Work with other groups in DLSS and the Libraries to identify and  
develop information systems that will define the library of the  
future, and will be integral to supporting scholarship in the digital  
age. Ensure that SDR provides services that are valued, complementary  
and interoperable with these systems.
Ultimately, lead the ongoing development and operation of the  
Stanford Digital Repository to ensure its success in meeting the  
programmatic needs of Stanford University Libraries and Academic  
Information Resources, and those of the University overall, for  
digital preservation services.

The successful candidate will bring to this position:
Demonstrated success in managing software development projects and teams
Demonstrated experience in the development and scaling of complex  
information systems
Demonstrated experience with successfully operating enterprise-scale  
information systems as reliable infrastructure, and balancing between  
competing demands of new feature development and ongoing operations
Proven capability as a senior level software developer in a J2EE  
environment, and experience in contributing to and/or defining the  
technical architecture of complex systems
Wide ranging knowledge of current and emerging technologies and  
information architectures
Familiarity with best practices in systems development life cycle,  
and capability for instilling industry standard practices and tools  
for software development
Experience and facility working in an academic environment
Experience in digital libraries and digital preservation, or a proven  
ability to quickly come up to speed in new arenas
Ability to track and participate in the digital library and digital  
preservation communities, identifying technologies, practices and  
theory critical to the SDR
Excellent organizational, management and communication skills
Demonstrated ability to deliver results in a complex and demand  
driven environment.
Ten years plus of applicable professional experience in software  
development, information technology, library science or related fields.
A four year college degree in computer science or related discipline,  
or equivalent experience.
