The LOCKSS Program (https://www.lockss.org/) maintains and provides support for the open-source LOCKSS software, which powers distributed digital preservation networks used by libraries and publishers worldwide to ensure durable access to digital content. LOCKSS is a core part of a portfolio of Stanford Libraries’ digital library initiatives with international recognition and impact. While LOCKSS networks enable the preservation of all types of digital materials, the LOCKSS Program retains a strong focus on scholarly publications, that it has had since its inception. This focus is reflected in the substantial work that the LOCKSS Program undertakes processing content for inclusion in the CLOCKSS Archive (https://www.clockss.org/) and the Global LOCKSS Network (https://www.lockss.org/join-lockss/networks/global-lockss-network), on behalf of libraries and publishers. To carry out this work, the LOCKSS Program builds tools and manages pipelines for content ingest, curation, and preservation.

The LOCKSS Program seeks a Software Engineer to undertake a range of tasks in support of content ingest and processing for LOCKSS networks. This will entail creating and updating plugins for retrieval, parsing, and processing of content from a variety of sources while noting ways in which this process might be streamlined; creating scripts and utilities for content tabulation and validation at various workflow stages; improving reporting capabilities; developing tools for more programmatic management of LOCKSS network content holdings information; and other projects in support of automation and process improvement. The role requires software development skills combined with the ability to dive in, learn quickly, and adapt from that to improved solutions.
This position reports to the LOCKSS Program Manager and works closely with staff responsible for ingest plugin development, content processing, and technical support to ensure accurate, efficient, and timely ingest and processing of new content on behalf of LOCKSS networks.
