Job Details

Programmer/Analyst September 22nd 2021

Allegheny College, a small, selective liberal arts college located in northwest Pennsylvania, invites applications for a Programmer/Analyst. This is a full-time administrative position reporting to the Director of Enterprise Services within LITS (Library and Information Technology Services).

Responsibilities:

The Programmer/Analyst has responsibility for resolving incoming internal requests related to reporting, business process and data management, ranging from simple ticket-based requests to larger college projects involving complex data structures and system integration. An individual in the position assists college departments with meeting business needs by researching requirements, and then determining whether the need is best met through process change, training, or creative use of existing resources, often involving customization, scripting or programming. Primary systems supported will be the Ellucian Colleague SIS/ERP and Entrinsik Informer reporting tool.

Qualifications and Skills:

This position requires excellent problem-solving skills, strong listening and communication skills, and the ability to program on the major systems used by the college. Communication about the work with key collaborators and alignment with expectations at the college is at least as important as the solutions themselves. The ability to relate the complex detail of data and workflow to less technical staff and administration will be key. Allegheny uses Rocket UniData as its primary database platform and reporting database, with some limited engagement with Microsoft SQL. Other databases may be used for niche solutions. The successful candidate will show a proven ability to learn and adapt to different databases and systems. The candidate must have at least a bachelor’s degree. Demonstrated experience in the areas listed here is strongly preferred.

Allegheny College is a Carnegie I national liberal arts college that ranks among the top 7% of liberal arts colleges in the production of future Ph.D.’s, business leaders and other professionals. The Chronicle of Higher Education ranks Allegheny as one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, specifically in the areas of compensation and benefits. The College is located in Northwest Pennsylvania, north of Pittsburgh. Its picturesque location is ideal for outdoor recreation, with seven freshwater lakes, ski areas and recreational opportunities all within easy reach.

Please submit a letter of application, resume, and provide contact information for three references to the Office of Human Resources, Allegheny College, 520 N. Main Street, Meadville, PA 16335 or by email to [email protected]. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. An offer of employment is contingent upon the successful completion of an extensive background check.

History - 200 Years

Founded in 1815, Allegheny College ranks among the oldest 1% of colleges and universities and is the 32nd oldest college in the United States. Perhaps as many as 100 colleges were established and failed before the Civil War. Allegheny is one of the hardy survivors that testify daily to the determination and vision of those early pioneers of higher education in America.

Allegheny is situated in Meadville, Pa., which was established in 1788 in the French Creek Valley, astride the route traversed by George Washington on his journey to Fort LeBoeuf a generation earlier. In 1815, Meadville was still a raw frontier town of about 400 settlers, of whom an unusually large number had come from Massachusetts and Connecticut. They dreamed of a college that might bring the educational opportunities of New England to the frontier. The Rev. Timothy Alden was recruited to take on the task, and two months after his arrival in April 1815, Allegheny was established-with Alden as its first president. 

Within half a dozen years, Alden succeeded in attracting sufficient funds to begin building a campus, having traveled throughout the eastern states seeking support for a planned library and classroom building. The need of a building to house a library led to the construction, in the 1820s, of Bentley Hall, today a leading example of early American architecture. Designed by Alden, this handsome structure still crowns the hill on which the campus is located. It is named in honor of Dr. William Bentley, who donated his outstanding private library to the College.

Each year, as part of the Commencement ceremony, seniors march through the doors of historic Bentley Hall toward the adventures that await them. In 2015, Allegheny will celebrate its 200-year history and the extraordinary futures of the graduating Bicentennial Class of 2015.
