The Harvard Library Innovation Lab (LIL) is looking for a Senior Software Engineer specializing in data engineering and backend development to help us imagine and build innovative software that charts the future of libraries. Our ideal candidate would be excited to build data pipelines and tools that help the world create, preserve, and access knowledge.

Through their understanding of libraries, this person will help us shape the wealth of data these institutions hold to meet the needs of data and AI engineers.

We are a small but active group working at the intersection of libraries, technology, and law, and we are looking for someone with new skills and perspectives to add to our team.
