1052 IS Business Analyst

Integration Team Lead

Recruitment #PEX-1052-097186

Introduction

Appointment Type:  Permanent Exempt Full-Time. This position is exempt from Civil Service Commission rules pursuant to the City and County of San Francisco, Charter Section 10.104, and incumbents serve at the discretion of the Appointing Officer.

The Office of the Assessor-Recorder will be screening applications as they are submitted. This announcement will remain live until the Department determines that a suitable number of applicants have applied. This announcement may close at anytime, but not before Friday, June 14, 2019, at 5:00pm.

 

Who We Are 

The Office of the Assessor-Recorder is responsible for carrying out property tax-related functions governed by the State Constitution and State and local laws. Our core responsibilities include locating all taxable property in the City and County of San Francisco, identifying ownership, establishing a taxable value, and applying all legal exemptions. Property broadly includes both real property and personal property owned by businesses. The Office of the Assessor-Recorder is also responsible for recording documents and maintaining those public records. Over 400 different types of documents are recorded annually, including deeds of trust, reconveyances, liens, and public marriage licenses. The Office is also responsible for collecting any transfer tax due upon a change in property ownership. The Office of the Assessor-Recorder strives to conduct our work with the core principals of professionalism and integrity. 

What We Do

Heightened activity in the real estate and business markets means increased demand for the work of our office. Every year, property tax revenue remains the largest single source of funding for the City’s General Fund revenue, representing close to $2 Billion in Fiscal Year 2017-18. This revenue funds crucial services like public safety, education, neighborhood improvements, and health and family support services. Through the dedicated work of the Assessor-Recorder staff, the City experienced an 11% increase in the local assessment roll compared to the previous year, representing a cumulative value of over $256 Billion and generating over $3 billion dollars in local revenues. This is due in part to strong growth in the real estate market, additional construction across San Francisco, and our office’s efforts in increasing efficiency. In recent years, we have taken significant steps toward modernizing our operations, including kicking off a multi-organization effort aimed at modernizing City-wide Property Assessment & Taxation Systems (Project SMART). Project SMART is a multi-year project to replace our legacy property assessment system that manages the City’s $256 billion in assessed property value. The new system will handle all aspects of assessment functions and will be able to integrate with other City systems, specifically the Office of the Treasurer & Tax Collector and the City Controller's Office. 

What We Are Looking For

The Office of the Assessor-Recorder is looking for one (1) Information Systems Business Analyst. The Department recently started an additional multi-year project to replace our legacy CRiis (Record Management system) system. The new system will handle all aspects of records management and will be able to integrate with other City systems. To implement the new system, the project team must ensure that it integrates with other City department systems, such as the Office of the Treasurer & Tax Collector, Department of Building Inspection, and more. In addition, we are in the process of replacing our document management tool, OnBase. The Information Systems Business Analyst will be responsible for completing the implementation of this project as well as on-going support and documentation.

Under the direction of the IT Director, and working alongside the project Ttams, the Information Systems Business Analyst will serve as the Integration Team Lead for the City’s Record Management system replacement project and will be responsible for ensuring the system successfully integrates with a host of external systems.

Conviction History

As a finalist for a job, you will be fingerprinted, and your fingerprints will be sent to the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The resulting report of your conviction history (if any) will be used to determine whether the nature of your conviction (or arrest, in limited circumstances) conflicts with the specific duties and responsibilities of the job for which you are a finalist. If a conflict exists, you will be asked to present any evidence of rehabilitation that may mitigate the conflict, except when federal or state regulations bar employment in specific circumstances, such as:

·        Candidates for positions with the Unified School District and the Community College District may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under the California Education Code.

·        Candidates for positions with the Recreation and Park Department may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under California Public Resources Code 5164.

Having a conviction history does not automatically preclude you from a job with the City.

If you are a finalist, the hiring department will contact you to schedule a fingerprinting appointment.
