University Web Developers

University Web Developers

I'm going to be hiring three new positions this semester. I hope to have the new hires in place Tuesday, July 1.

I haven't finalized job descriptions yet or made any other public notice concerning these positions, but I wanted to give the uWebD community a heads-up in case any of you are interested, looking or planning a career move this spring.

Here are the preliminary position descriptions:

Web Content Creator/Editor
o Web-oriented professional writer
o Excellent writer-editor with web production skills
o Not afraid of HTML, yet not a programmer
o Content maintenance and publishing
o Works to coordinate and unify disparate University content to support our brand positioning and business goals
o Ex.: Identifies relevant content on diverse aspects of international education; coordinates and edits into unified web content.

Web Producer/Developer
o Identifies, develops and manages diverse content (images, text, video, applications) to produce web sites
o Web page template programmer
o Practical working knowledge of NY State and federal web accessibility standards
o Understands and develops websites using contemporary web standards and practices to support a sustainable web presence
o Gets hands dirty in code and web processes
o Ex.: Gathers and manages manuscripts, photography, graphics, illustrations, audio, video, functional and technical requirements along with site architecture diagrams to program standards-compliant, accessible websites

Web App Developer/Prog Lead
o Code jockey, lives and breathes programming languages
o Helps plan, program and produce web applications to meet current and future needs, such as admissions personalization, course catalog, transaction-based sites, social/community sites for key constituents
o Super application/program development skills
o Comfortable developing with databases
o Ex.: Writes functional and technical specifications for, and programs core functions of, a conference registration site taking electronic purchase orders that communicates data to central databases

And then there's this position I'm hoping to add next year (proposed for ’09-’10):

Web Multimedia Producer
o Produces/edits video-on-demand/podcasts, animation
o Accessible media expert (video captioning, audio transcripts, etc.)
o Publishes A/V to web site
o Distributes A/V via really simple syndication (RSS)
o Maintains online multimedia (prevents “info rot”)
o Ex.: Gathers video clips, photography and manuscripts to edit, caption and publish online alumni video supporting the capital campaign

Salary ranges aren't quite as high as they'd be in the private sector. However, I believe they are good compared with others in the higher ed market and this region of "upstate" NY. Preliminary salary ranges, depending upon experience, for the first three positions are, respectively:

o $45,000 - $60,000
o $48,000 - $62,000
o $48,000 - $72,000

BTW, we are currently at the beginning stages of a comprehensive web redesign project and CMS implementation which will be in full swing by the time these new hires come on board.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss any of these upcoming positions.
