Do you want to work for a software product company that is rapidly expanding and has international roots? Are you interested in further developing your career in an employee focused environment? If so, then you should continue reading.
 
As our technical IT Administrator, you will have the overall responsibility for internal IT systems, cyber security, and program focused IT solutions. You will be responsible for providing IT support, setting technical direction for our IT infrastructure, managing outsourced IT resources and vendor contracts, and developing and implementing internal IT strategy to support our growth. In your role, you will be required to be hands-on in managing, maintaining, and deploying IT systems (i.e. you perform server configuration, provide technical troubleshooting, install and implement new systems, etc..). This role is dynamic which will require you to roll up your sleeves to perform technical work while also being able to manage vendors and implement processes and procedures.
 
You should be ambitions and a self-starter who is able to take initiative without waiting for direction. You will be asked to wear many hats in an environment that is fun and quickly growing. You are a do-er, advisor, and manager who is customer focused. This position is not for a non-technical, hands-off IT Admin.
 
As part of the job, you will review current IT systems, processes, and policies, and ensure that we are scaling to support growth. You will manage outsourced IT vendors, develop processes and policies, and ensure compliance and a secure cyber security posture. To do this, you will bring your experience and the ability to keep up to date with current IT and cyber security trends, to ensure a scalable IT department that supports the work we do.
