We strive to create a culture where every team member feels included and valued, and where different backgrounds, perspectives, and ideas are celebrated. Student Financial Services is committed to the belief that diversity in all its forms is not merely a desirable complement to excellence; it is an essential component of it. The diversity of our team itself, and our team's commitment to the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion, strengthens our ability to effectively serve staff, faculty, students, suppliers, and the University community.

Student Financial Services is seeking a motivated and adaptable software programmer who enjoys an agile and engaged approach to software development. This position provides a unique opportunity to implement innovative and forward-thinking technology solutions that address complex business challenges within Student Financial Services. This role will be responsible for program design, coding, testing, debugging, documentation, and production support.

SFS has a variety of custom web-based tools utilizing JavaScript frameworks like Vue and React, supported on the back end with PHP and Python scripts that interface with MySQL databases. In addition to managing these tools, our team is always looking for new technology solutions to improve business processes through automating tasks, providing better user interfaces, and making data more accessible. A successful applicant will be comfortable gathering requirements from our users, designing data models, utilizing REST APIs, and implementing modern web design practices.

Critical thinking, technical writing, analytical skills and listening proficiency are essential. Proficiency in JavaScript and query language is required for this role, and PHP or Python is strongly preferred. Familiarity with these technologies would be a plus:
  • Apache web server
  • Linux command line
  • Amazon Web Services
  • SAS
  • git version control

We have some flexibility in implementation of our tools and can lean into the strengths of our team, so understanding the principles of web design and data security is more important than technical skills in any one area.

Minimum Requirements:
  • Education: Bachelor's degree in computer science, MIS, somputer engineering, or related discipline.
