At Getty Digital, we're re-imagining how we can use data, software, and systems to provide a deeply connected and consistent experience for staff, scholars, researchers, and enthusiasts as they explore the rich and complex information held across the four programs of the J. Paul Getty Trust. Arches, the open source platform jointly developed by the Getty Conservation Institute and the World Monuments Fund for cultural heritage data management, is central to this strategy. This position is a newly created Arches-focused role to support the collections and work of programs across the Getty.
We are looking for an enthusiastic, experienced, and user-centered professional to join the Collection & Content Management Systems team within Getty Digital. The IT Project Manager reports to the Systems Architect and works closely with technical and content-focused teams across the organization, including semantic engineers, software developers, infrastructure staff, librarians, archivists, and subject matter experts. This position plays a pivotal and important role in bridging technical and non-technical staff and concerns.
The IT Project Manager will be responsible for the implementation and application administration of multiple instances of the Arches data management platform by Getty programs. Currently five instances are planned to support datasets from across the institution, which include conservation science data, bibliographic data from our AATA abstracting and indexing service, and collection-related data from the Getty Research Institute. In addition to implementation projects and daily application management activities, you will work directly with staff to understand and optimize workflows by leveraging systems capabilities. This also includes performing gap analyses to identify opportunities for extending the application. Working with multiple user groups, this position serves as the central coordination point for Getty Digital to serve the Getty’s internal Arches-related needs across units. This is an excellent opportunity for a cultural heritage professional with both technical and soft skills.
The J. Paul Getty Trust, one of the most prestigious cultural heritage organizations in the world, is dedicated to furthering the study of the history of art, advancing conservation practice, and promoting public knowledge and appreciation of art. You will work on a dynamic and beautiful campus filled with art, a world-class research library, and experts from numerous fields. We offer every other Friday off, excellent benefits, and a strong commitment to balancing work and personal life. Relocation assistance is available.
