Job Description:

Did you know that Californian’s today breathe the cleanest air since measurements have been recorded? ARB continually researches why and how air pollution occurs. We initiate groundbreaking regulations that have reduced air pollution in California by 50% over the last 20-years. California established the first-in-the-world comprehensive program to reduce greenhouse gases, widely believed to be a significant contributor to global warming.

ARB's scientific and technical programs rely extensively on web-based information systems and associated infrastructure, and the mission of the Office of Information Services (OIS) is to leverage the most effective information technologies available to achieve ARB's program goals. The mission includes ensuring that such technologies are professionally planned, managed, properly maintained and efficiently used.

ARB is looking for an experienced Senior Information Systems Analyst (Sr.ISA) to work as an IT Project Manager (ITPM) in ARB’s IT Project Management Office. The Sr.ISA will primarily manage IT projects and provide expert advice, mentoring, consultation, guidance and collaboration on application development projects, and will work with other ARB ITPMs to develop standards and provide oversight for IT application development projects that affect the Air Resources Board. In addition, the Sr.ISA will aid ARB in complying with California Technology Agency reporting requirements by developing and maintaining required project documents, and applying ITPM methodology in support of projects and efforts. The Sr.ISA will also support OIS compliance with California Statewide Information Management Manual (SIMM) requirements.


The successful candidate will have significant experience in applying standard ITPM methodology in the initiation, planning, implementing, testing, monitoring, and closure of projects. The successful candidate must have knowledge and experience in applying the system development lifecycle and project management processes as defined in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) and the State Information Management Manual (SIMM), and will be familiar with Agile project management methodologies. The successful candidate will have excellent communication and writing skills, and sufficient knowledge in the use of MS Project, Word, and Excel.
