Iowa Workforce Development is a state agency with a remarkable amount of modernization over the next few years. These projects transform how the agency does business and provide an incredible opportunity to reduce spending on technologies and erroneous payments while improving the overall user experience. Iowa's Unemployment Insurance program, which it administers on behalf of the Federal Government, operates on the legacy and outdated technology. Benefits are still on a Mainframe System with a 40-year-old code behind it, and while Tax has a web-based front end, there are shared data between the two systems. There is an emphasis across the nation for these systems to be modernized, and IWD wants to be the leading workforce agency in the country, integrating a combination of home-grown (Tax) and vendor-supported (Benefits) solutions.

This position is part of an existing UI Tax team - Scrum Master/technical lead, 4-6 developers.
