Details

The individual within the senior developer position will work with other colleagues on the product development team, UComm leadership, and product users across campus to architect, develop, and maintain enterprise-level web communication platforms.

As a lead member of the web development team within University Communications and Marketing at NC State University, the individual within this position is able to help influence the direction of the university’s web communications and marketing strategy through the development of university-specific web platforms using WordPress and Laravel.

The products created by the individual in this position will range from the technology used to power the university’s website (ncsu.edu) to those that support the web communication efforts of lower level units such as academic departments, business units, and research centers.

The product developer will build and continually enhance complex, mobile-friendly web platforms and applications while considering organizational and technical limitations. These platforms will primarily be built with WordPress and its Gutenberg editor. A smaller subset of solutions will be built using Laravel, a PHP framework. The solutions developed will be used in a wide range of settings and configurations and therefore require a high-level of attention to detail and planning to ensure efficient and sustainable growth. The individual within the product developer position should be able to deliver such solutions.

This position is part of a larger team comprising other product, solutions, marketing automation, and implementation developers on the web development team. The web development team works alongside designers, writers, photographers, videographers, and marketing coordinators within University Communications and Marketing.
