Digital Repository Developer - Metropolitan New York Library Council

Posted on June 25, 2019


Located in New York City, the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) is a non-profit organization working to develop and maintain essential library services throughout New York City and Westchester County. The METRO membership consists of a diverse group of over 200 libraries, archives, and information organizations ranging from New York’s largest libraries to small community archives. METRO provides professional development and continuing education opportunities for our membership, in addition to digitization, metadata, and hosting services for digital collections.


METRO is seeking a developer with experience working as a Drupal 8 site builder and theme developer. We have developed an innovative new open source repository architecture called Archipelago, and as the Digital Repository Developer, you will have a chance to contribute to this project in its infancy! Archipelago uses a modified version of Drupal 8 for the public front end and administrative interface. The first software METRO will build using this architecture will be a digital asset management solution meant for libraries, archives, and museums. Reporting to the Lead Developer, the successful candidate will work collaboratively with our team on our base repository solution, contracts building new custom repositories and new features, and they may manage a portfolio of support contracts as well.

Remote work is acceptable, but preference will be given to candidates who can join us in our studio in New York. This is a one year contract position, and with success we will review and renew this contract annually as funding allows.
