Complete Description:

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

40 OpenText 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.

This phase of the project is

expected to last approximately 9 months.

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.

Behavior Characteristics:

Able to work in a challending

environment, with 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 individ
