As a Information Technology Specialist (Systems Analysis/ Applications Software) you will:
Provide technical guidance throughout project design, coding, testing, debugging, and maintenance programs. This includes developing, updating, and maintaining relational databases.
Translate and interpret functional requirements involved with the local phase of a national project.
Apply computer assisted software engineering (CASE) tools to the design and development process.
Test, install, implement, document and maintain software during a significant local project or as needed to support applications which have a broad impact.
Provide support and guidance to other coworkers in solving programming problems.
Maintain source code. Modify and/or upgrade code as necessary to support applications which have a broad impact.
You must meet the following eligibility and basic qualification requirements by the closing date of this announcement.
A. One year of specialized experience equivalent to the GS-7 level that demonstrated knowledge of computer requirements and techniques in carrying out project assignments consisting of several related tasks, such as typically is the case in development of minor modifications to parts of a system on the basis of detailed specifications provided. The assignments must have shown completion of the following, or the equivalent:
Analysis of the interrelationships of pertinent components of the system.
Ability to plan the sequence of actions necessary to accomplish the assignment.
Personal responsibility for at least a segment of the overall project.
Ability to translate and interpret customer-provided business requirements to produce technical specifications.
Working with other design team members in integrating specifications at the system level.
Participating in preparing test plans.
Reviewing and analyzing test data.
Such skills are typically gained in the computer field or through performance of work where the primary concern was the subject matter of the computer application (e.g., supply, personnel, chemical process control), and computer related efforts were required to facilitate the basic duties. Also, work in management analysis, program analysis, or a comparable field may have provided such skills. OR
B. Master's or equivalent graduate degree in computer science, engineering, information science, information systems management, mathematics, operations research, statistics, or technology management or in one or more of the fields identified above and required the development or adaptation of applications, systems or networks. OR
C. Two full years of progressively higher level graduate education leading to a master's or equivalent graduate degree in computer science, engineering, information science, information systems management, mathematics, operations research, statistics, or technology management or in one or more of the fields identified above and required the development or adaptation of applications, systems or networks. One year of graduate education is creditable in accordance with its relationship to a year of full-time study at the school attended. OR
D. A combination of experience and education equivalent to the amount required.
A. one year of specialized experience equivalent to the GS-9 level that demonstrated accomplishment of computer project assignments that required a range of knowledge of computer requirements and techniques. For example, assignments would show, on the basis of general design criteria provided, experience in developing modifications to parts of a system that required significant revisions in the logic or techniques used in the original development. Accomplishments normally involve the following, or the equivalent:
Ability to work with program representatives to: Identify and specify requirements; Identify specific operations, processes, transactions, data, and work products adaptable to automation; and Develop specifications for inputs and outputs, systems interfaces, and other design features.
At least one year of specialized experience equivalent to the grade 11 that demonstrated accomplishment of computer project assignments that required a wide range of knowledge of computer requirements and techniques pertinent to the position to be filled. This knowledge is generally demonstrated through assignments that required the ability to analyze a number of alternative approaches in the process of advising management concerning major aspects of ADP system design. This would include defining what system interrelationships must be considered, or what operating mode, system software, and/or equipment configuration is most appropriate for a given project. In addition, your experience must include planning and coordinating an agency-wide implementation of process improvement methods and concepts to improve the quality of software products; Serving as the principle advocate within the agency/organization for the application of process improvement concepts and practices; and Consulting with senior specialists and IT managers throughout the agency in the implementation of process improvement practices.
In addition to the above, to be qualified for this position at these grade levels applicants must have experience in Informatica and developing PowerCenter multisession partitioned mappings.
