The successful candidate will work in partnership with the Executive Director to identify opportunities for developing and enhancing the technologies critical to NYLI’s success. These include the creation of catalogs integrating NYLI and member records, the ongoing enhancement of the website, and other projects using collaborative technologies to enhance members’ experiences.
