  • This position requires a broad range of technical expertise encompassing: 
     
    1) IT systems support: Including IT systems used for research (example a Virtual Reality (VR) systems used for research in veterinary medicine), systems used for instruction (example the Canvas Learning Management System and the Mosaic video wall - the most sophisticated system for synchronous interactive and asynchronous learning in existence in higher ed today, and support of any associated servers and services (e.g., SaaS and/or on-premises needed to operate Spur. These systems are at a level of complexity and sophistication not existing in central IT at the CSU-Fort Collins campus, with all of their resident expertise. 
     
    2) Customization of critical IT systems related to Spur: This includes a very sophisticated Customer Relations Management (CRM) system, a public-facing calendaring system, an events management system, a room scheduling system, a registration system, a credit-card processing system, and the back-ends of these systems interfacing with all other systems. Many of these systems are yet to be determined and will require a project-based approach to define, order/purchase, install, customize, and determine an operational paradigm. This role will be responsible for designing and leading IT project management; this includes driving independent research to identify systems best suited for programmatic needs, creation of the implementation strategy and managing the efforts through implementation. 
     
    3) Mobile access: Wi-Fi, DAS, and Passpoint – including the most advanced Wi-Fi system available today, and the Distributed Antenna System (DAS). These systems will need to be supported for all users of the Spur campus. This position will be responsible for operating the Wi-Fi system for Denver Water and Dumb Friends League, in their leased spaces, collaborating with their respective IT team and leading the Spur side of the collaboration encompassing IT solution selection, design, deployment and support at Spur. The new technology of Aruba’s Passpoint, a technology that supports cellular devices over the Wi-Fi network, is also being explored and is included in the responsibilities of this position. 
     
    4) Device management: Anticipate organizational needs for device management. This includes acting as decision maker for both software and hardware strategies ensuring technology chosen is aligned with evolving needs of the business and adheres to CSU IT standards, software and security policies. 

    5) Off-Hour support: Spur plans to host many events during off-normal business hours which would include nights and weekends and will require IT staff being present at Spur. This will require IT positions at Spur to be able to work very independently, and have the knowledge and the judgement to operate at this level of independence while still delivering an exceptional user experience to the Spur occupants. 
     
    This position must be able to work independently as well as a part of a team. Position will be cross trained with other IT positions at the Spur campus to provide backup. This position will interact with other IT professionals within other CSU System institutions to resolve matters surrounding specialized hardware and software systems used for joint research and education across the campuses. In addition, this position will be responsible for aligning efforts with other CSU campuses and external partners. This position shall report to CSU System Director of IT Operations. 
     
    The successful candidate must have the ability to lift up to 50 lbs on a weekly basis. An example could be if an office technology needs to be rearranged or printer moved from one desk to another, the IT team member would handle this service ticket on their own. Professional development and growth of the candidate is expected. 
     
    Work during off-normal business hours will be required, to support events, and to respond/react to IT needs that will arise.
