This role provides a wide range of technical expertise in our DevOps environment and is responsible for provisioning, configuring, administering, and maintaining all CAITS managed systems.

This position is also responsible for the secure configuration of server and workstation operating systems (both Windows and Linux) to keep them compliant with federal and university policies for the protection of critical clinical data. For established systems, this role will monitor logs and key performance indicators as part of the ongoing system tuning needed to ensure high availability. As part of these efforts, this position must make certain that all established protocols are followed, that current documentation artifacts exist and are up to date, and changes to established systems are approved thru our change management process with minimal service interruptions. Complex problem-solving skills are important as the person in this role will be an active member of our DevOps model assigned to various projects in support of the CAITS' mission. Depending on the project's scale, a CAITS Systems Administrator may be asked to assume responsibility for coordinating service delivery and deliverables from clients, UITS, CAITS, and 3rd party vendors to complete a project.
