We’re looking for a hands-on strategic infrastructure engineering and administration leader to help take the business into the next phase of growth. As the content intelligence service, our service to customers relies on a high-performing infrastructure, governed by controls and standards. That’s where you come in.
We’re looking for a technology leader to administer information technology for a business that supports highly confidential and regulated environments. This person will lead the evolution of our infrastructure architecture, security planning, and compliance, as we exponentially grow our distributed company.
This is a remote role that can be done from anywhere in the US or Latin America (LATAM). Currently a part-time role, this position will become full time as we grow. As an early leader, you will have the opportunity to carve out a path that suits your lifestyle goals by influencing role definition and involvement level over time.
What You’ll Be Doing
