University Web Developers

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 think the distinction would be someone in a web/marketing/communication office that is specifically devoted to that task, vs. someone in an office doing it part time as part of larger responsibilities.
Mike,

Thanks that is helpful. Can you give me a list of web-related titles for these positions in your department.

I am the Web Producer for UFV, which includes developing web strategy, web team management, project management, oversight of SEM/SEO, social media management and marketing, web design and architecture. I liase with IT, staffers and content producers using the content management system and report to senior management on the analytics and strategic initiatives.
Thanks Carol. So just you then? No one else other than IT? Can you tell me how many fac/staff you guys have at UFV, or how many students?
Jay
Hi Jay,

We have approx 18,000 pages on our main website, www.ufv.ca, and approx. 35,000 students enrolled. There are approx 130 content providers. At the moment there is just myself in marketing, however I am hiring a designer/developer and a content editor. In IT we have a part-time sys admin (backend) and part-type support/trainer.

In my department (which is actually part of Advancement and not central IT) we have myself as Web Communications Specialist, a Director of Advancement Web Development, and a Senior Director of Design, Web Communications and New Media. There's another web professional in Advancement who is more a database admin than a front-end developer.

Our web presence has been decentralized since its inception--everyone's been more or less on their own. Generally each college or division has web staff of various titles, stripes and flavors to suit whatever needs they have.

Our school has somewhere upwards of 30,000 students. I'm not entirely sure the number of pages across the entire site, but Advancement alone is responsible for at least a few thousand individual pages across all of its departments.
Brenden,

Thank you that is helpful. I too am under Advancement along with Marketing / Creative. Except it is me and a highly skilled 1/2 timer person doing web. I am new to the position, however I have 12 year in commercial internet marketing experience. So I am trying to get my arms around this to move it forward.

Thanks again to all for your input.

Jay
