[Announcements] Post: Sakai Collaboration and Learning Environment Community Coordinator
Following the complete transition of a key member of staff from the Sakai Collaboration and Learning Environment to the Sakai Open Academic Environment, the Sakai Foundation is pleased to advertise the following post:
Sakai Collaboration and Learning Environment Community Coordinator
Full-time position (40 hours / week expected)
To ensure the continued high quality and timeliness of Sakai CLE releases, on a schedule that is appropriate for institutions depending on the CLE worldwide.
Salary: In the range $80,000-$120,000
Required priorities (in order from most to least important):
1. Community coordination - Attend (and lead when necessary) the weekly CLE team / release meeting and organize other meetings as necessary (security meeting, JIRA triage, contributed patches review). Provide periodic announcements and meeting summaries to the community (and TCC) via established communication channels.
2. Security coordination - Monitor CLE security issues via established Sakai Community security protocols and send out alerts and security emails. Keep track of what is fixed, what is outstanding, and what others have said they would fix. Follow up with community resources to ensure issues are resolved and tested. Manage the list of security contacts.
3. QA coordination - Provide QA team with outline of testing needs and provide mechanisms/scaffolding for the QA team to track progress. Identify QA resources in the community to assist with testing. Provide QA status updates to the CLE team and community. Work with the CLE and QA teams to determine when a release is sufficiently tested and ready for release. Undertake QA testing to fill in gaps or backup the rest of the QA team when necessary.
4. CLE JIRA issue management - Work with the CLE team to review outstanding blocker/critical tickets for the upcoming release using the Sakai Community JIRA issue tracking instance. Follow up with developers who are assigned to fix issues and ensure they are resolved in a timely manner. Identify community resources to resolve issues that are unassigned (review the list of unassigned issues at least once a month). Assist with review of incoming JIRA tickets and ensure issues are not stagnating.
5. Infrastructure support - Oversee and ensure that there is adequate support coverage for Sakai Foundation/Community infrastructure and provide backup coverage as necessary. Current systems include: mailing list management (mailman), version tracking system (SVN), issue tracker (JIRA), wiki (confluence), continuous integration (Jenkins), etc.
6. Documentation management – Cleanup and management of the Sakai wiki space and release documentation. Identify out of date information and follow-up with community authors to update information or move it to an archive. Assist with confluence cleanup and documentation updates (especially around releases and community volunteering) as needed.
7. Licensing management - Ensure that corporate and individual Sakai CLE contributors have executed Corporate Contributor License Agreements (CCLA) and Contributor License Agreements (CLA). Conduct periodic license audits of Sakai CLE software to ensure conformity to requirements of the ECL (the open source license used by the CLE product).
It will be helpful for this position to be able to provide backup for branch management, issue resolution (Sakai development), and other technical work, however, that is not a primary responsibility. Initially little (if any) technical work is expected; working with and learning from the current technical community will be expected, however.
This position will report to the Sakai Foundation Executive Director but will receive direction and be expected to work closely with the Sakai CLE TCC (Technical Coordination Committee).
● Extensive familiarity with the Sakai CLE product
● Experience working within, and communicating with the Sakai community
● Experience administering and supporting services (e.g. JIRA, Mailman)
● Familiarity with the Sakai CLE source code
● Experience working with open source software and communities
● Experience of, and comfort with, remote working
● Comfortable with public speaking and meeting facilitation
Applications should be made to Ian Dolphin, Executive Director, the Sakai Foundation, by email at iandolphin@... . They should contain a complete curriculum vitae, and a short supporting statement detailing experience in the required areas.
Closing date: 27th April
