Types of Full-time University Web-related Jobs (a very informal poll)


I am trying to get an idea of the quantity and different types full-time, web-related positions at other higher-ed institutions.  Please let me know the types (titles) and the number of FT web staff at your university or college.  

Positions include but are not limited to:
  1. Web Developer
  2. Web Designer
  3. UI Architect / Designer
  4. Search Marketing (SEO / SEM)
  5. Social Media Marketing 
  6. Anything else specific to the web
Thanks,
Jay
Asst. Dir., Web Services

I'm just the web designer but am trying to get it changed to either Webmaster or Web Communications Specialist (because eventually would like to be Director of Web Communications) - just trying to make it sound fancy since Ireally do more than just design the site, I develop it and I also take the photographs, shoot and edit video, and in control of social media. I don't develop anything that requires backend work to a database or application. That's for my programmer.
Nicole, so it is you and a single programmer? Does the programmer have a web-related title?
Jay
Yes, it's just me and another in the Office of Marketing and Communication. The Web Programmer / Analyst has recently been split between our department and IT. A few departments do have a CMS to update the content of their site.
University wide here is hard to guage, there are maybe a dozen or so that work in the web full-time however some of us, like myself, have titles that reflect positions that are completely unrelated (I'm a LAN Systems Specialist). In our case everything is so decentralized that not even the 3 official campus web people have any idea who else is out there.
Chris, that is pretty much the same situation I am in. Thanks for your input.
We have 2... that are full time web.

1. Web Developer - That's me. A bit mis-leading though, since I am also in charge of all of our web services from an administration/IT/Support role. I do some content editing, but mostly let that fall to the other position... Currently I also keep our portal up to date with news and such. Mainly because we've had difficulties getting other departments to publish their content to the portal and they insist on emailing it instead. *sigh*. Part of the IT department.

2. Content/Graphics Specialist - In charge of adding content for our public website. Whether it be imagery, or content itself. he's in charge of keeping the site fresh with new changes, and the like. Part of the Public Information Office.

Additionally, one of the other PIO staff members spends about 50% of their time working on web content for the public website.

FTE ~1500

Thanks Paul, is anybody doing internet marketing or social media specifically?
I am Director of Web Marketing. I do everything (and I mean that). I am the only person doing anything full time on the site. FTE 7100
Thanks Michael. About how big is your school?
See above, ~7100. Our web site hovers around 30,000 pages.
What about a content person? Like a Web Content Editor?
Lane, I am not really counting content providers since many times they can be staffers from any and every dept. many times using a CMS. In our case we have somewhere between 60-130 content providers, not using a CMS for something like 1/2 a million pages.

However I am new to academia, I come from the commercial sector, so I can be convinced.
