We especially invite applications from candidates who may not have followed a traditional educational or professional path. All candidates should be prepared to discuss how they see themselves contributing to the University’s equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts.

This position will work closely with Student Computing Services (SCS) and other members of Client Platform Services (CPS) to provide a wide range of IT related services. These services include triage of problem tickets submitted by students, faculty, and staff, investigating technical issues, deployment of systems, assisting with software related problems, and helping Library staff with technology training. This position will also assist with medium to long range projects, such as building software packages, JAMF and SCCM implementation, and integrating technology services.

Applicants must demonstrate the potential ability to perform the essential functions of the job as outlined in the position description.
Continuously demonstrated ability to troubleshoot the root cause of and resolve complex issues individually and through teamwork. Excellent knowledge of both Windows and Mac operating systems, which use JAMF and SCCM in managed environments. Ability to build/install software packages, work with multi-platform hardware systems, and programming/scripting experience would be helpful.

We do not expect any candidate to be a perfect match for this list or to perform all of the duties with equal proficiency on day one.
