The Worker must be comfortable working in an Agile/SCRUM environment conducting daily stand-up meetings, maintaining the Azure DevOps application in accordance with 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 candidate will be expected to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in both the functional and technical aspects of PeopleSoft.

The role will also require heavy Functional Analyst skills.

This worker must be equally confident conversing with top level management and developers. Finally, the 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 lead, and have substantial experience as a functional resource in Benefits Administration, Payroll, or Pension Administration modules. The worker’s experience would include past development work and would be functional in recent years.
