Job Description

Your Job

You have a deep understanding of the complex nature of rapidly expanding system landscapes and the challenges that follow. You feel comfortable building simple controls for processes and cool while planning complex new integrations for new systems. Working with people, both technical and not, to understand what it is they are attempting to accomplish is inherently interesting to you; delivering a robust solution drives you and offering guidance around best practices, building internal tooling, and addressing inefficiencies is part of your systematic processes.

When a technical fire happens, you understand that communication is critical; putting it out should always avoid collateral damage. When you cause a fire, as everyone inevitably does, you take responsibility for it and work with the team to figure out the right way to put that fire out. You believe blaming is a waste of time - when something goes wrong, you figure out why it happened and how to prevent it from happening again in the future. Better yet, you look for how things went right in the first place and improve upon those.
