Position Summary

If you’re looking for an interesting programming job with great upside, we have one you should check into. At Portland Community College, the largest higher-ed institution in Oregon, we have an opening for a Programmer Analyst II within our Banner IT team.  PA II’s are at the top of our non-management (technical) organizational ladder for developers, and the primary responsibility of this position is to support and extend Banner Finance, including integrating it with new cloud-based applications.

Is this job for you?  We’re looking for someone who is a self-starter, with strong technical and leadership skills, who has worked in a Banner or similar ERP environment and enjoys being part of a mission-critical IT systems team.   Core responsibilities include designing and developing new functionality, extending existing code to meet user needs, and working with other technical staff and key stakeholders in the Finance organization. SQL and Java are at the core of our Banner Finance environment.

As a Programmer Analyst II, your technical background will be important, but also important is the opportunity to continue learning.  Lifelong learning is important for technology leaders, and this job offers that growth opportunity in addition to exercising what you already know.

Needless to say, PCC plays a major role in Oregon in helping to make affordable college a reality.  It’s nice to work at a place that is highly-regarded by the public and has a mission that for-profit, private-sector companies can’t match.

See the classification description for additional information:
