Job Description: The IOP CX identity platform operates on a complex, broad, and continuously expanding set of applications and tools, housed on both cloud infrastructure and SaaS products that the program leverages to build and provide mission critical services to the State and its constituents. Its largest and most complex offering, OHID, serves as an enterprise-grade identity service for all State of Ohio agencies and its constituents.

- To ensure that all development (changes and new functions) are built to IOP and industry standard, ensuring scalability and supportability.
Technical Identity and Access Management (IAM) Subject Matter Expert and Architect
As platform adoption rises, agencies continue to onboard applications and services to the platform at a rapid pace. IOP consistently has multiple identity projects operating in parallel, many of which are technically complex, mission critical, and traverse diverse organizations, both across State agencies and within DAS.
