Integration Specialist

Location: New York City, NY

Department: Noodle Partners

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

Company Overview

Noodle Partners is a leading ed tech company focused on using technology and outsourced services to improve higher education while ultimately lowering tuition.  Many universities supplement their campus-based programming with online degree programs - especially those at the graduate level - in order to make them accessible to a broader audience.  Companies called Online Program Managers (OPMs) have built a $2 billion industry, selling comprehensive packages of technology and services that include everything the university needs to create and deliver online programs. The downside of working with an OPM is high expenses (60-70% of tuition revenue), long-term contract commitments (7-15 years), a lack of control over the end product ‒ which leads to higher tuitions ‒ and, in many cases, inferior service.

Noodle Partners offers a new approach to online program management. We offer universities great online programming by assembling a team of the best ed tech and higher-ed service providers in the marketplace and working with them to integrate their products and services into a comprehensive, customized solution for universities.  We develop only limited technology ourselves and instead focus our resources on assembling a stack of best-of-breed ‘Partners’, negotiate favorable pricing, guide their integration, manage their delivery, and evaluate their performance against goals set with each university.

Job Summary

You will be an integral member of building online nirvana by integrating best-in-class technologies for each facet of online program delivery.  In this role, you’ll be responsible for designing an excellent, cohesive user experience by coupling Noodle’s best-in-class providers with a university’s legacy systems.  

 

The ideal candidate has a hunger to learn new technologies and dives into the weeds on each of the systems we bring together. If you strive to understand the intricacies of each configuration and have the ability to knit technologies together to provide a seamless experience for students, faculty, and administrators- this position is an excellent role.
