IT / Developer

By December 13, 2017

Summary of Position:

Ardent is looking for an IT Developer to assist staff with IT issues (basic computer problems and printer issues) as well as respond to server outages and work with server hardware. The IT Developer will work alongside other developers in the office to learn development and help with any development projects that are currently in progress. This person will do development for internal projects at Ardent. The IT Developer will also manage hosting environments we currently have and work with other staff to make sure things are set up properly.

This position is a mentoring position that will involve learning development on the job, but the primary position will be that of an IT person. Any development tasks assigned will not be mission critical and will need to be ignored in favor of IT needs.

Because this is a combination position, IT work will be minimal. There will be times when it ramps ups, but for the most part it will be monitoring and maintaining. Ardent is a growing business that needs someone who can handle the day to day IT needs of the staff but who also wants to learn how to do development.
