University of California, Los Angeles
Requisition Number: 30765
Salary: $6,334 - $12,516 monthly
Under the general supervision of the Director of Undergraduate Education Information Technology (UIT), the Manager will supervise four programmers to develop, implement and maintain over 200 complex mission critical web based, custom applications many of which are campus-wide and reside in the MyUCLA web portal such as the Class Planner, Gradebook, Peer Learning Manager, and the Commencement reservation system, as well as another application suite called Counselor Desktop. Nearly all the applications were written from the ground up and are custom-designed for UCLA. These web applications are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Manager will need to generally be available to monitor applications and to coordinate "best-effort" support of these applications during non-business hours. UIT's applications are used by 100% of undergraduate students (all schools and the College), most graduate students, all faculty who teach courses, and numerous staff who provide services to students. All final grades for the entire campus (undergraduate and graduate courses) are collected via MyUCLA Gradebook. Counselor Desktop is also a "mission critical" suite of complex applications, currently used by 507 active UCLA employees, who have been trained to utilize one or more applications contained within it.
The Manager will have a dual role, both as a senior programmer on the development team, providing technical expertise and project management, as well as the supervision of the team members. This team of programmers has the sole responsibility to design, develop, and deploy all of UITs intranet and network anchored software applications. The Manager will be responsible for the full lifecycle of the applications, providing guidance and insight based on extensive IT experience and expertise, both on campus and in the industry. At any given time, the Manager will need to manage several ongoing projects simultaneously. Some projects will be small and internal while others will be extremely complex involving multiple external departments such as Student Affairs IT, IT Services, Undergraduate Admissions, Registrar, Financial Aid, Accounting and Cash Management, Common Collaboration and Learning Environment, Central Ticketing Office (CTO), Events and Transportation, Recreation, and Center for Student Programming.
The Manager will select, hire, review and prepare evaluations for internal staff. Other duties include training, mentoring, setting priorities, assigning/monitoring progress of individual tasks and deadlines. The Manager will work together with team members to determine estimates in order to plan, prioritize and budget programmer resources. The Manager will guide the team to meet the project goals and deadlines set by the director. When required for certain external projects, programming resources must be tracked and recharged to the appropriate external department. The Manager will provide technical expertise and leadership, working with the team to develop, define, implement and refine both coding and documentation standards.
The Manager is expected to participate in discussions with internal departments and serve on committees or stakeholder groups with outside organizations to assist in the development and management of complex applications with campus-wide impact. Meetings will include both technical and non-technical personnel. The Manager will be expected to lead and work closely with technical staff in internal and external departments as a member of project teams.
