IT Network/Systems Engineering Manager Research Facility
Our client is hiring a Full time IT Network/Systems Manager that has the expertise to run, operate and manage a remote R&D facility in Montreal, Canada.
You will be a remote embedded technician supporting researchers in a small lab setting like a start-up. You will need to interact with researchers and folks just learning the environment, and be capable of success with both. You will need to be an IT generalist that can dig deeper as a specialist, and can think on his\her feet, a whiz so to speak that takes the scenarios presented and makes sound decisions.
In other words, there is IT and breadth of knowledge and then there is just figuring out root cause and then engineering a solution, so an issue does not happen again.
IT Managers that work only on large scale projects at a high level, but do not have the basic hands-on skills are going to struggle in this role.
You will design solutions that fully qualify and meet the customer’s needs today and into the near term, not just an IT solution that is technically sound. You will interact with corporate IT and other IT teams to gain a reasonable result for the group, you support. You will be self-motivated, self-directed, and have a strong desire to find a workable solution. You will think about the security and corporate policy implications of any solution you provide as part of the finished product.
Additional responsibilities include:
In this role, you will interact with lab leadership and provide first-class and professional executive support as well and have an ability to dig deep, keep trying, maintain an honest dialogue while explaining your action plan, accept mentoring when hitting roadblocks, and stay cool under pressure while working through something. You will follow-through on what you commit, discover, and qualify expectations; and develop or adapt methodologies to keep all issues active in queue.
The role also requires you to learn our Audio Video infrastructure and capture, record, and stream periodic lectures and events.
