This position is double-posted at the 4P3 and 4P4 levels.

compliance.

  
The Web Archiving Engineer will primarily develop and maintain software to
facilitate web archiving workflows and use cases: harvesting, data management,

content and associated metadata into repository, discovery and access
environments.

  
  
  
Operational Support (25%)

  
Collaborate with the Web Archiving Service Manager to troubleshoot and resolve
technical issues affecting harvest, replay and web archiving workflows.
Generate Wayback Machine and Lucene indexes to enable web archive replay,
full-text searching and metadata analysis.

  
  
  
Harvest Engineering (15%)

  
Develop tools and techniques to enable archival capture and replay of rich
media, streaming content, social media as well as traditional web page
content. Administer web crawls to maximize data capture quality and efficient
use of limited resources.
