OCTO’s Web Maintenance Team is responsible for
maintaining the web standards and publishing processes for District of Columbia
government web properties that make up the DC.Gov web portal. The portal
educates and informs District residents and other interested parties to the
various policies, programs, services and systems that constitute the District
Government. The team manages website content publication workflow; provides
editorial and standards oversight for all content, troubleshoots minor issues
and responds to emergency situations that require immediate public
notification; and assists and advises other District projects in integrating
new content into the DC.Gov web portal.
The Web Maintenance Team is currently in the middle of a
project to migrate all District agency websites from DC.Gov’s current content
management systems (DSF and OpenText) to a new Drupal platform. This phase of
the project anticipates migrating approximately 50 websites to this platform.
Editors will be expected to work on several agency websites concurrently. The
migration will include converting the websites to a new look and feel that has
already been developed by OCTO. Transition activities include managing agency
client expectations, explaining technical concepts to non-technical people,
assisting the agency with developing a new information architecture, content
preparation, content migration, agency site editorial review, photo and graphic
resizing, agency site launch, etc. The candidate will work with a business
analyst on the development of the site architecture. The candidate will follow
universal content management principles as well as District of Columbia web
standards throughout content migration efforts. It is the candidate’s
responsibility to become familiar with District of Columbia terminology,
District services and the agencies that provide such services. Some fact
finding and research is required.
Familiarity with Drupal or other similar Content
Management Systems and with website conversions are highly desirable. Although
the principal role is that of a web editor, strong analytical skills, as well
as the ability to work with others are contemplated as part of this position.
Capable with challenging work environment, changing
priorities and assignments. Multi-task on multiple web migration projects.
Detail oriented. Organized. Work collaboratively with large team. Can explain
technical processes to non-technical individuals.
