We are seeking a Student Record Systems Lead to join the Student Information System Core project organization, responsible for completing hands-on functional and technical project activities to support the implementation of the Campus Solutions Financial Aid module. The Student Record Systems Lead will work with the other leads in the other functional areas (Admissions, Student Record, Student Financials, Academic Advising) to ensure cross-functional synergies throughout the project activities.

This position is a professional role that will work simultaneously on different workstreams of the project, including system design/configuration, data conversion, integration requirements, and reporting.

This position will demonstrate and explain key product features and provide knowledge transfer to other workstreams of the project team, where needed. Once the solution and processes are implemented, this role will be a point person for post-launch support. The Student Information System (SIS) Renewal program is a Boston University-wide effort to modernize the Information Technology systems in order to better serve our students and support the university’s strategic priorities while mitigating the technical risk our current, custom-developed, mainframe based SIS presents.
