Assistant Director, IT (Former Employee) – Marion, IN – February 22, 2017
When I was first hired on, my primary duty was ensuring data integrity from universities that came into the Tree of Life (ToL) systems. Also, verifying data that left ToL systems. As I moved up to Assistant Director position, we were getting systems in place to monitor most of the data coming/going, so I started focusing more on sysadmin responsibilities. I worked with VMware hosts, Windows/Linux servers, deploying new on/off site backup solution, helping desktop support when more technical issues came up, and imaging/deploying both physical and virtual solutions. It was challenging in a good way, and make me really enjoy the work.
Fun and relaxed atmosphere, new technical challenges and opportunities to learn
Not much upward movement potential
