Systems Developer

The student Systems Developer will design and implement small-scale workflows using HTML forms, JavaScript, and workflows primarily built using Azure Logic Apps. This position will interact with stakeholders to clearly understand the workflow and how it will interact with the end users.

An example system would be a form for faculty to submit annual faculty reports. These are PDF documents that the associate dean and department heads review. The submitted PDF should be properly renamed and stored in our cloud storage. Reports could then be run on who has submitted their reports. Most applications are stand-alone and will be developed using primarily front-end HTML and scripts using APIs.

Tasks Include

  • Development of HTML forms
  • Development of JavaScript to handle functionality of the forms
  • Interviewing stakeholders to best understand how a workflow can improve the current process
  • Design of workflows primarily through Azure Logic Apps
