Job Description

As a Systems Administrator on the Apple@Pixar Team, you will join a group of technicians, administrators, and engineers, providing comprehensive, customer-focused support for macOS, iOS, and tvOS. The team provides exceptional technology experiences for Pixar employees by ensuring that Apple systems remain stable, secure, and well-integrated into the rest of the studio.

You are passionate about all things Apple: from MacBooks to iPhones, Keynote to iCloud and everything in between. You care deeply about empowering people to take control of their technical tools, and can demystify the complexity of technology for non-technical people. You understand that troubleshooting can be as much an art as it is a science, and enjoy the challenge of complex problems. You respond promptly to today's pressing issues, but are more inclined to automate solutions wherever possible. You effortlessly switch between independent and collaborative approaches to troubleshooting, solving some problems alone, and others together with your colleagues. Most of all, you are inspired by technology and its role in making people productive and happy.
