TECH WIZARD NEEDED, COME WORK WITH ME!

Are you recently retired and want to supplement your retirement income, or just want to remain professionally active? If you have a strong tech background and you are at a place in your life where personal fulfillment and civic engagement considerations are more important than money and upward mobility we should talk.

PVA offices are notoriously and disgracefully limited in staff salary ranges (but not the PVA's), which is beyond my control. There are search engines available online where you can judge that for yourself, like this one (If you need guidance on this, the job is probably not a good fit as extreme resourcefulness is a necessary skill). 

The PVA office utilizes a network, firewall, routers, four servers (two of which are cloud-based) which are home to a powerful Oracle database and several server based applications, 25 individual work stations, field tablets and a multitude of printers, plotters, scanners and copiers.

As exciting as the hardware component of the job sounds, there’s more, a lot more! As the official database of property in Fayette County, we are a “big data” shop, including GIS. Authoring the annual tax roll is obviously our number one priority, but we also have a civic responsibility to make the wealth of data under our care available for countless data-driven decision-making purposes by government, business and activist leaders. And for the data to be most useful we must maintain it in a manner consistent with the highest quality standards possible with the resources we are given.

The external big data component of our work is through participation in the LFUCG Vacant Property Review Commission, Infill and Redevelopment Committee and Neighborhoods in Transition Task Force, as well as numerous ad hoc requests and opportunities we process on an ongoing basis. And, there are duties related to FayettePVA.com – the most popular government web site in town (hint: we are about to relaunch a brand new version).

The PVA staff has and is very creative with dozens of potluck-type food days throughout the year – especially on UK game days, parking is provided, and as a Commonwealth of Kentucky employee, health benefits are good.

Who wouldn’t want this job? Fulltime is preferred but part time and moderate flexibility will be considered. Message me (spelling my name correctly will move your resume toward the top of the pile because it apparently is more difficult that one would think and will demonstrate your resourcefulness and attention to detail).
