CDL Position: Manager, Infrastructure and Applications Support
Are you excited about supporting the building and creative use of the world’s scholarship and knowledge? Are you a strong IT technical manager who can meet the challenges of managing complex relationships, keeping technologies up-to-date and working with developers to support multiple development, staging and production environments?
We do more than put information online. At the California Digital Library (CDL), we provide technology and expertise to help the University of California collect, publish, access, and preserve its full range of information resources. CDL takes a comprehensive approach to digital library development that balances experimentation with reliable production services strategy. We pursue simple, economical solutions to big challenges.
We manage and continuously improve server, storage, and network infrastructure for application development, staging, and production activities through partnerships with state-of-the-art data centers, Amazon Web Services, and others.
Our open-access publishing platforms help the brightest minds easily disseminate their findings and ideas, putting technology to work for the producers and consumers of new knowledge.
We make interactive library systems work well together, so our users find and access the information they need as quickly as possible.
We are actively building services to manage and preserve digital information of all kinds—from images to raw data to the deepest websites. Our curatorial approach to digital information helps scholars build on past discoveries to create new knowledge.
