University of Virginia Library and Academic Preservation Trust (APTrust) seeks applicants for a Lead Developer. APTrust is a distributed digital preservation repository serving several universities in the United States. We run a suite of preservation services in Docker containers on AWS using ECS/Fargate, Redis/Elasticache, NSQ, RDS/Postgres, Glacier, S3, and Wasabi. In addition, we provide cross-platform terminal and desktop apps to help depositors push new materials into our repository. APTrust operates in the US Eastern timezone and applicants should be eligible for employment in the United States. This position is eligible for 100% remote work.

We're seeking an experienced Go developer to maintain and extend our suite of online services. In this position, you will:

  • Work with depositors to define new features

  • Design, code, test, and document new features

  • Help maintain and troubleshoot operations in the existing system

  • Help improve processes for testing, release, and deployment

  • Manage contractors or student workers doing development, testing, or documentation projects

  • Occasionally present your work at conferences

  • Work with many smart, interesting people from around the US

In this position, you will NOT:

  • Be doing day-to-day Ops work. The Lead Engineer for DevSecOps has that covered.

  • Be putting out fires or working late to resolve issues in production. We're running a stable and busy system thanks to a well-designed architecture, years of production experience, and a strong emphasis on unit, integration, and end-to-end testing.
