About us

We are a small team situated within Electronics and Computer Science (ECS), at the University of Southampton’s Highfield campus.

At our core is an open source repository platform, EPrints, which provides a flexible way to configure operations concerning data capture, structure and presentation, and a range of services that allow content to be accessed in a variety of ways.

The EPrints platform is used in over 500 organisations throughout the world.
We support over a 100 customer EPrints repositories, as well as supporting the open source EPrints platform.

Most of our customer community are based in Universities and IHE within the UK, but many are also based further afield, we also have a number of significant commercial contracts.

The EPrints platform is designed to promote, encourage and facilitate the use of Open Access and Open Data practices.
As a member of the team you will help support our customers to achieve these.

While the core software is Perl based, beyond this we use a lot of Javascript, CSS and XML, and have projects involving Python, PHP and Java, to name but a few.

While we are looking to recruit full time staff, if you are local to Southampton and are interested in working part time with us, perhaps while pursuing your current research, drop us a line.
