Current Openings

    • Application Services Specialist or Senior Application Services Specialist

      Technology Services is looking to fill several Application Service Specialist (Specialist or Senior) positions to support web hosting (cPanel, WordPress) and/or IT service management (TeamDynamix) services. As campus wide services used by students, faculty, researchers, and staff these positions must provide high levels of customer service. Application Services Specialists play active roles in developing new and emerging service offerings: engaging with vendors, service owners, campus governance groups, customers, and other key stakeholders to identify needs and possible solutions, then developing service roadmaps using data-driven justifications.

      These staff play a critical role in defining key service performance metrics and creating mechanisms to monitor and measure. They are responsible for the day-to-day administration of IT applications and services, completing tasks such as troubleshooting; resolving issues; creating documentation; interacting with customers and end users; ensuring security and privacy compliance; planning and implementing upgrades and feature roadmaps; and escalating issues to vendors and/or other IT groups.
