University of Wisconsin–Madison

Web Director Opening

University Marketing, the central marketing and brand office at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is looking to add an enthusiastic, talented full-time web director to our web group.

About the Web Group

We play a critical role in all of the university’s major communication and marketing efforts.

We feel privileged to be responsible for many of the university’s most prominent online products, including the UW-Madison home page, campus map, #UWSocial, and events calendar, to name a few.

We’re collaborators first and foremost, guiding colleagues across campus through user-centered design processes to design and build websites that help this world-class research university strut its stuff!

Your role

We need a leader, with a vision for how technology can drive communications in University Marketing’s efforts to advance the teaching, research and public outreach missions of this Big Ten university.

Your work will be to establish and articulate that vision to our talented web team, whose skills comprise a range of user-experience, design and development methods and tools. You’ll oversee and fully participate with your team to plan, design, develop and deploy a variety of digital solutions implemented in a variety of technologies (HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, WordPress, Ruby on Rails, among others). We are a small but sophisticated team, but our relative size means everyone – even you—fully participates in the work.

Perhaps most important, we hope you’ll add to and champion the creative energy of our group as we work together to try new ideas, tools and techniques. We embrace learning and expect you to as well!

What we need from you

We need you to set the course for our web team, and our online communications work. We need you to be a leader not only in our office, but also on campus. Most critically, we need you to be passionate about digital communications, primarily (but not only) web and application design and development. We need you to love creating beautifully engineered solutions to marketing and communication problems. We need you to take initiative, to provide both daily leadership and big picture vision, and to crave learning new things.
