Remote Job Description

We are looking for an innovative, self-starting, and critical-thinking team member to join our Engineering team to support and expand our strategic Peoplesoft accounts and our bi-directional Peoplesoft integration. 

You will be fully immersed in the ongoing integration management (maintenance and troubleshooting along with expansion and roll-out) and goal achievement of our strategic Peoplesoft client accounts, adding value to our clients and the team daily. So, if you thrive in a fast-paced environment, care deeply about the customer experience, and seek to make an impact in higher education, join us! In this role, you will also have an opportunity to leverage your product mind and contribute to improving the product at a mission-driven company.

Key Responsibilities

  • You will manage our end-to-end data integration: data mapping discovery, coordination with our third-party integration provider, data validation and integration testing, and data issue resolution.
  • You will own the data engineering role on specific, strategic Peoplesoft client projects if and when Coursedog engages on new product roll-outs. It involves executing technical integration activities, including API validation with partners and integration data validation with clients, and designing new SIS integration data mappings.
  • You will maintain and expand the internal knowledge base around the Peoplesoft integration and best practices and continually drive improvement around those elements of the business. 
  • You will ensure client integrations are configured correctly and with no downstream integration risks. It involves supporting clients through deep technical investigation to resolve integration issues post-go-live.
  • You will work closely with engineering on gaps and technical needs for client integrations. It includes driving needed bug fixes, technical enhancements and providing expert guidance on the specification for new integrations with Peoplesoft.
  • You will collaborate directly with external customers to understand their integration goals and specify and design data solutions.
  • You will own the technical communication between the clients and Cursedog teams, and you will be supporting the functional leads on technical questions.
  • You will work as a part of a cross-functional team and collaborate with teams across Coursedog to drive innovation and best practices in our data integrations.

Skills Knowledge and Expertise

  • You are a Peoplesoft System expert with over 5+ years of experience on Peoplesoft Campus Solutions implementation, integration, or management projects.
  • You exhibit deep technical knowledge and expertise on REST APIs, scripting, JSON, data manipulation, and transformation.
  • You have a strong problem-solving and troubleshooting mind and the ability to read and process JSON data.
  • You have the technical ability with Postman or command-line tools to invoke APIs
  • You know how to use data to make smart decisions about tool usage, new tool adoption, and tool retirement.
  • You communicate technically with ease to the non-technical audience and deeply technically to the engineers; you can speak to database tables and fields fluently.
  • Intuition and senses to identify downstream implications to data configuration decisions
  • You have experience with using tools to process large data payloads and to identify trends in data.
  • You can work in an unstructured environment to prioritize accordingly.
  • You document everything — every design decision, every bit of technical knowledge, the status of client configuration at project go-live, and more.
  • You are a team player and readily express gratitude for the accomplishments and successes of the other team members.
