  • Lead the engineering team in implementing the redesigned IAM solution, ensuring alignment with best practices and industry standards.
  • Oversee the configuration, customization, and integration of SailPoint IdentityIQ to meet the organization's specific needs.
  • Collaborate with other IT teams to integrate the IAM solution with existing systems and applications, ensuring smooth data flow and user experience.
  • Define and implement access control policies, segregation of duties (SoD) rules, and role-based access controls (RBAC) within the IAM solution.
  • Conduct thorough testing of the IAM solution to ensure its reliability, functionality, and performance.
  • Develop comprehensive documentation, including architectural diagrams, configuration details, and standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the IAM solution.
  • Provide technical guidance and support to the engineering team throughout the implementation process.
  • Collaborate with operations teams to smoothly transition the reengineered IAM solution into production and ensure its ongoing maintenance and support.
  • Stay updated on the latest IAM technologies, trends, and best practices to continuously improve the organization's IAM capabilities.
