[EP-tech] Digital Development Officer (E-Repositories) Role - University of Warwick

******  Apologies for Cross-Posting ******


We are looking to recruit a full time, permanent Digital Development Officer (E-Repositories) to join our team here at the University of Warwick.


The post holder will play a key role in supporting the development and use of our repository environments - supporting the technical and software development of our institutional publications and data repository, WRAP (http://wrap.warwick.ac.uk)  in the first instance.  Priorities over the coming period will include further development of the University’s repository platform (currently EPrints) to support and enhance user experience, staff processes and reporting, as well as support for the REF 2021 submission. The post will be responsible for contributing to the stable running and security of the software as well as planning for the long term software sustainability of the service. This will involve working with the Digital Development Manager and the E-Repositories Manager to develop robust user requirements and appropriate user journeys for the service and evaluate available systems against these requirements.


You will require a strong technical understanding of the technologies that underpin repository software and have good interpersonal skills as the post will involve close, collaborative, working with different partners across the University and with third-party software support services. Experience and a keen interest in the use of technology in a University environment, especially to support research and scholarly communications, will be useful, as well as previous experience working with repository or digital assets management software.
