For a project to succeed, all of the parts involved, from technology to people, need to work together as a cohesive whole. Often this is easier said than done. Some teams hire integrators or people who specialize in making sure that all aspects of a project work as a whole.
The daily duties of an integrator vary depending on their employer or background. Some integrators specialize in technical integration. This just means making sure that various tech platforms that a company is using can work together. Other integrators are in demand for their soft skills. They work in fields such as development and build new partnerships to increase the reach of their organization.
The path to becoming an integrator varies depending on the integrator's specialty. More technically minded integrators may work as engineers first, while those who focus on coordinating people tend to work in social work or nonprofits. No matter where they work, most integrators have a college degree, although it is still possible to succeed without one.
