Are you maniacal about clean code? Does scalable architecture make your heart sing? Do you want to solve complex problems with crazy smart people in a 100% remote environment? The team at IWT would love to talk to you.

About the role

As the Senior IT Lead you'll be responsible for all day to day IT operations. We have no in house development so you'll wear a lot of hats including:

  • Sourcing and managing external IT vendor partners
  • Partnering with other teams and vendors to lead issue resolution and post mortems
  • Planning the IT release roadmap and calendar
  • Managing the IT Backlog
  • Defining and communicating technical requirements
  • Validating the work of external vendors and approving delivery of code
  • Defining the process and policies required to manage multiple IT platforms, internal and external stakeholders, and providing outstanding delivery to a user base of over 500,000 users.

in this role you'll report directly to the Director of Operations. You'll manage your own budget and your own department. If you are an architect or developer with exceptional organizational skills and want to take a jump into a more strategic role, you're exactly who we're looking for. If you've ever wanted a chance to make your mark and run your own show, this is a great opportunity for you.
