The Web Programmer Analyst performs technical work involved in the design, development and implementation of web-based applications. Under general supervision, the Web Programmer Analyst evaluates, develops and implements a variety of moderately difficult web programs and systems, and analyzes web program problems to develop resolutions. Public contact is extensive and involves conferring with potential and existing users, vendors and staff about programming, web design and content needs. A high degree of independent judgment and creativity are required to independently perform assigned work following prescribed procedures and to apply those procedures to the work of user departments. Consequences of errors in judgment can be costly in employee time; however, management and procedural controls limit the risk of serious consequences. A Web Programmer Analyst can lead the work of other staff and student assistants as assigned.
