Deus Ex Machina. In Ancient Greek stagecraft, the actors playing great gods of Mount Olympus would be suspended from the ceiling and lowered onto the stage, an otherworldly force swooping in at the last moment to settle the score. More like Deus ex Sharepoint, am I right? Actually, yes. This here is a role where you get to use your compulsively ornate Sharepoint skills to save the day.
Remember in Christopher Nolan’s 2008 thriller, “The Dark Knight,” when they had to evacuate a hospital? We thought to ourselves, ‘Wow, what an impressive logistical feat!’ In this role, you will be joining the team that is helping a world-class medical center prepare for hypothetical disasters. They are working on building an online presence to disseminate important internal communications for worst-case scenarios. It will be your job to help create this platform via Sharepoint.
Your team will be writing packages of information on what to do during an emergency. So your job will be to create a space where this information is accessible at all times, like a community page. In case of an actual emergency, you’ll be in charge of shaping urgent communication packages in real time onto the platform, making sure they are set up in such a way that directs traffic to the right places.
Hired Gun Profile
What we need here is someone who sees Sharepoint as an art, and not like colored pencils and construction paper type stuff. We need a Michelangelo. Maybe you’re a BA/PM with extensive Sharepoint chops, or a Sharepoint developer with a great tech background. Experience with communications would be a major plus, as would any information architecture and UX background.
This team is looking for this project to build a case for a more dynamic presence in external communications. If you earn your stripes in this first phase, you have a great chance at watching the project grow.
It’s not everyday you get to say, ‘My Sharepoint skills have the potential to save lives.’ Unless of course you get this job. Then you can literally say that every day.
