IT Technical Specialist
Pivotal IT seeks a support and hosted systems guru who likes people as much as they like the command line. Do you take great joy in a smoothly running office? Does a complicated technical issue fill you with troubleshooting glee? We want to meet you! Is discovering something you don’t know exciting? Awesome. We’ll learn it with you.
What does Pivotal do?
We want to transform the way the world builds software. We’re building a Pivotal suite of software and services to let everyone, from big to small, create great software of their own.
What does Pivotal IT do?
If it has a MAC address, it’s ours. We keep things working so that everyone else can focus on what they do best. We value personal communication over documentation, time over money, and good enough today over perfect next week. When we want a hand we pair and learn. Got it well in hand? Get it done.
What do we need from you?
Our NY office is growing fast and we could use a hand keeping it, and some of the company’s primary systems, running smoothly. Your job will become as big as you make it. The prime directive is: do the right thing, do what works, and be kind. We want you to help us do that.
What do we work with?
We’re an Apple shop, but some people will be on Windows or Linux instead of Macs. If you’ve got background in all three, we’re stoked. If not, we'll teach you. We deal with mobile of every stripe. As few printers as possible. We love Google Apps and Zendesk. We keep as many services hosted as we can. You’ll also have the chance to work with cool stuff like Casper Suite, OS X Server, Okta’s SSO, and ESXi, but you don’t need to be familiar with those now.
What’s a typical day look like?
Hot breakfast shows up at 8:30am. After we eat, we get together for a chat on what’s happening that day. We all stand up to keep it quick. Once you hit your desk, it’s up to you. What looks important? What do you want to work on alone? What do you want to pair on with one of the other team members? What do you want to kick to someone else? You have a lot of latitude in deciding how to do your job. If you work here, we trust you.
