Job Description:
Virginia’s community colleges have a 50-year track record of educational excellence and innovation to serve the needs of our citizens and strengthen the Commonwealth’s economy.  When Virginia’s General Assembly established the Virginia Community College System in 1966, the need for a comprehensive system was well known. Over the two decades after the end of World War II, leaders in government, business, professional sectors, and academia had called for a new approach to providing educational opportunities.  A key concern was Virginia’s ability to develop a skilled and knowledgeable workforce to expand the state’s economy. Today our community colleges allow every Virginian to gain a quality education.  With 23 colleges on 40 campuses located throughout the state, Virginia’s Community Colleges are committed to serving Virginia families, helping them acquire the knowledge and skills to seize the opportunities of today and tomorrow.

This position is a member of the Enterprise System Engineering team. This position is responsible for system administration, NetApp storage technologies, datacenter operations, Microsoft and Linux server operating systems, and related infrastructure. This position is responsible for server, storage and software at multiple institutions including the System Office, the Shared Services Center, and infrastructure located at the two VCCS enterprise data centers, and does not require face-to-face interaction with the public, including students. This position routinely completes remote after-hours and weekend upgrades, patches, and maintenance on server, storage, and software infrastructure to minimize service interruptions during normal business hours. It is expected that the employee will be capable of working on a fully remote basis, planning time appropriately and going to work locations, VCCS datacenters and wherever needed throughout the VCCS in order to ensure the successful operation of system infrastructure serving all 23 colleges located throughout Virginia. The employee will attend all required meetings as necessary, either in person or from remote locations as dictated by present circumstances. The employee will be generally available during normal work hours but will be fully prepared to routinely work as needed outside of those hours in order to maintain the 24x7 service required by the VCCS.
