Responsibilities

The Worker must be comfortable working in an Agile/SCRUM environment conducting daily stand-up meetings, maintaining the Azure DevOps application in accordance with client's standards in support of a conversion from the legacy PeopleSoft application to a cloud hosted replacement.

General Description:

This role is functional in nature and will not require hands-on coding; the role will however, require enough technical acumen to research problems in the legacy system using PeopleTools/Code, SQL, etc.

The role will also require Functional Analyst skills beyond maintenance and setup of configuration tables. In addition, the candidate must have solid experience leading and working in an Agile/SCRUM environment as part of a data conversion team to include the mapping of data fields and performing root-cause analysis in the legacy PeopleSoft application identifying the cause of data problems in the system.

The candidate will be expected to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in both the functional and technical aspects of PeopleSoft during the interview process.

Functional Responsibilities:

The worker must have impeccable oral and written communication skills, solid experience with the integration of the core modules within the PeopleSoft HRMS 8.8 application (HRMS, Base Benefits, Benefits Administration, Pension Administration, Payroll), including experience researching processing requirements between other systems – both upstream and downstream. This worker must be confident having detailed conversations with the users at the functional level, with developers at the technical level, and be able to accurately read PeopleCode, write SQL, and analyze data.

The ideal candidate would have experience on data conversion projects; has been a hands-on project team member, and have experience as a functional resource in Benefits Administration, Payroll, or Pension Administration modules. The worker’s experience would include past technical research both in PeopleTools and SQL writing and would be functional. This is not a techno-functional role rather a ‘funco-technical’ one.

Other Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Performs other duties as assigned

  • Certified Scrum Master (CSM) or Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) certification(s) a plus.
  • Communicates respectfully and works harmoniously with all co-workers, customers and vendors.

  • Ability to handle multiple competing tasks and meet deadlines, work efficiently and productively, communicate both verbally and written, with a high level of confidence

**Location: Hybrid- This is currently under a hybrid model, which involves at least 2 days in the office, and the other days working from home (Days to be in office to be negotiated with your manager).  Full remote exceptions will be considered for candidates with demonstrated ability to deliver.  If remote is determined by client to not be delivering successfully, hybrid on premise will be expected.*
