The Consortium and its members strive to leverage shared technology, create best processes and service our organizations to support each college’s strategic plan.

In conjunction with these implementations, we are building out our IT support infrastructure.
We provide a meaningful benefits program including medical, dental, vision, life, disability, retirement with a generous match, paid time off and wellbeing program. This position provides a unique learning and career growth opportunity in an innovative environment.

Position Summary:
The Integration Specialist is an experienced professional who has a broad understanding of technical architecture, cloud and on-premise application integration to and from Advancement, Finance and HCM systems and the software development life cycle.
As an Integration Specialist, your focus will be on application integration between Oracle Fusion Finance and HCM and other business application providers on the cloud (SaaS) and on premise, including Student Information Systems (SIS) and vendor systems and to a smaller part to and from Blackbaud RENEXT.

The position reports to the Executive Director of the Consortium and will regularly collaborate and engage with the Finance, HR, Advancement and Information Technology teams from our member institutions. Preference is for the position to be located in Shelburne, Vermont but open to remote option subject to some reasonable travel to colleges/consortium.
