Distinguishing Characteristics

Programmer Analyst I is the entry level position in the programmer analyst series. Initially under general supervision, incumbents support existing and assist in implementing new business applications; code, test, and debug system interfaces, custom reports, and automated database processes; and prepare documentation and operations instructions.

Programmer Analyst I’s generally assist Programmer Analyst II’s in specific and defined aspects of a large project or assume responsibility for projects that are of limited complexity and routine in nature. This classification is alternately staffed with Programmer Analyst II and incumbents may advance to the higher level after gaining experience and demonstrating a level of proficiency that meets the qualifications of the higher level classification.

 

Programmer Analyst II is the journey level position in the programmer analyst series. Incumbents work under direction and are expected to demonstrate thorough knowledge of database systems, business systems, custom report writing and programming techniques, and systems analysis.

For those who enjoy the outdoors, Pueblo is paradise – boasting some of the state’s best river and mountain trails.
