The Role

As HRIS Administrator, you will be responsible for taking ownership of a variety of key activities that support our robust and dynamic HRIS system. 

This role will evolve and change as time goes on.

Once the implementation is fully configured, you’ll shift your long-term focus to activities that will support the system. You’ll handle our internal ticketing system that will include a variety of inquiries from the field. Tickets will encompass everything from changes in access to other more technical issues. You’ll funnel the tickets out to the appropriate contact or handle the ticket yourself. You will also serve as the primary point of contact to the vendor.

  • Support end users with issues in HR systems, data feeds, or other affected processes by troubleshooting and escalating to vendors as required.
  • Develop and monitor dashboards, metrics and automated data feeds and reporting.
  • Update and alter system data, account logins, permissions, ongoing reports and security measures.

  • Manage other duties as assigned.

This role moves beyond the core HR functions and encompasses other aspects of the HRIS, including the Learning Management System, Compensation and Benefits, and various other functions of our Shared Services model.
