The City of Mobile seeks to hire a Digitization Project Manager, who will be responsible for the digitization of paper records of the Mobile Historic Development Commission (MHDC) and the Architectural Review Board (ARB). This position will work closely with the Director and staff of the Historic Development Department and with the City’s IT department in the completion of duties required under the City of Mobile’s Certified Local Government agreement and the projects outlined in the City’s application for grant funding.

The position currently is expected to be limited to an approximate 5-year term. The position will be grant-funded through September 30, 2022, when it will transition into a regular appointed position for the remainder of the term.

Requires a Bachelor’s degree in historic preservation, architectural history, history, archaeology, or a closely related field and a minimum of two years’ responsible experience in preservation planning, historic research, archival or library science, or electronic records management. Preference will be given to those with a Master’s degree in historic preservation, architectural history, history, archaeology, or a closely related field and education or experience in archiving or electronic records management.

This position requires time management skills, project management skills, and the ability to communicate with internal staff in a professional manner. Must have good knowledge of research techniques, both in hard copy and digital form; ability to develop metadata and key words; ability to determine appropriate file formats; ability to develop policies and procedures related to digital records; ability to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing; ability to coordinate activities and services with other City departments; ability to operate and utilize computer software, and the ability to establish and maintain effective working relationships with Historic Development staff and other City department employees.

The Digitization Project Manager will be responsible for coordination with the Information Technology department to maintain operation of the digitization software, selection of appropriate file formats and compression, and scanning of approximately 79 file drawers regarding locally designated historic district properties and other records in the Historic Development Department office in such a way that the regular work of the office is not disrupted. The Digitization Project Manager will work 32 hours per week through September 30, 2022 and a regular 40-hour week thereafter. The hourly rate is expected to range between $25/hour and $29/hour, depending on qualifications, and the salaried full-time position will range between $52,00 and $63,620 per year, depending on qualifications.
