Job Description

Join us on our exciting journey!

IQVIA™ is The Human Data Science Company™, focused on using data and science to help healthcare clients find better solutions for their patients. Formed through the merger of IMS Health and Quintiles, IQVIA offers a broad range of solutions that harness advances in healthcare information, technology, analytics and human ingenuity to drive healthcare forward.

Identity Governance & Administration


Design, integrate, develop, maintain, and support enterprise Identity Governance & Administration (IGA) products, solutions, and services in accordance with the IAM product & platform strategy. The system landscape consists of both .NET & Java-based technologies, with a go-forward strategy that leverages enterprise-grade, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions.

IGA solutions manage identity and access life cycles by collecting, aggregating and correlating disparate identity data across multiple QuintilesIMS Systems that are distributed throughout the IT & Business landscape.  This data serves as the basis for IGA functions including: automated provisioning of accounts among heterogeneous systems, fulfillment of access requests (including self-service), password management, governance over user access to target systems via workflows and automated policies, access certification processes, and reporting.  Additional capabilities often include:  risk scoring of a user's combined entitlements, segregation of duties (SOD) enforcement, role management, role mining, audit case incident management, and analytics (historical change, performance, recommendations for entitlements or certifications, etc.).


  • Execute technical delivery of sophisticated identity management solutions (both COTS and custom-built) that enable QuintilesIMS users and external customers to access systems and data while maintaining the principle of least privilege, using a combination of coding, scripting, integration, and platform customization – including system upgrades, installation, and performance tuning
