Job Description:

Under general direction, leads and performs highly complex professional information technology duties related to network design, development, installation, analysis, testing, implementation, documentation and maintenance; plans and coordinates complex cross functional network-related projects; facilitates complex network interfaces with data communications and database systems; assists users with the most complex questions regarding network operations and procedures; serves as a lead worker over subordinate professional, technical and other staff; and performs related work as assigned.
This is the advanced professional level class within the Yosemite Community College District (YCCD). Incumbents in this class lead and perform highly complex professional analytical duties related to network design and infrastructure support. Incumbents utilize advanced professional knowledge of information technology to make decisions and complete assignments and typically serve as lead workers within their assigned unit.
This class may be distinguished from the lower-level class of Network Analyst because the latter is the journey-level class where incumbents perform moderately complex professional duties related to designing, implementing and supporting the District’s information systems network infrastructure, and because incumbents at the Network Analyst level are not typically assigned full lead worker duties and do not manage the most complex network development projects.
Incumbents in this class work under the general direction of a manager or senior manager, working from broad policies and towards general objectives. Incumbents refer specific matters to a supervisor only when interpretation or clarification of organizational policies is necessary.
Incumbents do not directly supervise other full time employees, though they may serve as lead workers by assigning, directing and monitoring the work of subordinate professional and technical staff on a regular, project and assignment basis.
