I'm currently working on a confidential Director of IT position with a well-established client of mine in the consumer-facing, e-commerce space. I can share details of the company once contacted. 


Here's what they are looking for -


We are looking for a passionate, intelligent individual to lead our IT, Operations, and Platform development group during a very exciting time, while we take our web presence to the next level and seek to find innovative new channels to reach our readers and the members of our community.


Reporting to the VP of Technology, the Director of IT will provide critical software, hardware, and network support to the entire staff, including remote employees based in multiple cities across the country. Responsibilities include but are not limited to server administration, VOIP management, hands-on computer hardware/software support, IT security, troubleshooting, and networking. 


You will have several direct reports focused on IT and Operations, but will also have to be a hands-on manager working directly in a customer support role.

Key Responsibilities

Provide IT leadership and strategic and tactical guidance for the group and the company
Respond to and address the needs of 100+ staff via hands-on support
Lead and mentor a team of IT and Operations professionals, including staffing, scheduling, prioritization, and career development
Ensure the continual availability and security of all IT systems
Serve as IT liaison for 3rd party vendors
Manage purchasing and implementation of software and support licenses
Stay up to date with trends, technologies, and regulations within the IT field
Make implementation recommendations regarding systems, security, tools, performance and support
Maintain accurate records for hardware and software inventory, licensing, cabling, equipment configuration, and other documentation
Establish and maintain user accounts and security permissions
Facilitate server and local data backups and ensure effective storage methods for recovery

While this role reads heavily managerial, it is poised to be very hands-on. Experience in a high traffic Linux environments will be a big plus here. 



If anything I mentioned here sounds interesting, please send your resume and contact information with the expectation of confidentiality to Sabrina McGrail - smcgrail at winterwyman.com or call 212-616-3527.


All the Best,







Sabrina McGrail
