Project Systems Administrator

Are you looking to GROW in your career, and SKILLS?

Do you like a FAST PACED work environment that keeps you BUSY and STIMULATED

Do you THRIVE in an environment that values RESULTS and REWARDS excellence

Would you like to make a real IMPACT through the SUPPORT and IMPLEMENTATION of technology?

If you answered yes to the above questions, then we may have the right career opportunity for you.

IT Direct is ranked as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in America by Inc. Magazine, ranked 303 in the MSP Mentor top 501 Managed Service companies in the World, and by the Connecticut Technology Council’s Marcum Tech Top 40. We are a growing and dynamic organization looking for people to help advance our mission of helping small & mid-size companies realize a competitive advantage by harnessing the power of technology to reach their business goals.

This type of work environment provides numerous benefits including the opportunity to work with new and emerging technology, deal with multiple companies and varied networks, a consistent amount of work that drives value, and affords myriad opportunities to learn and grow.

That said, this is not for everyone. If you don’t like to be held accountable for the quality and efficiency of your work, or if you get stressed leaving work knowing that there are things that had to hold over until the next day, then this is not the place for you. If you struggle to prioritize, do not like to communicate with people, or can’t work in a team environment where the group’s overall success is more important than individual accolades then we suggest you don’t apply to work with us.

However, if you do like a REWARDING CHALLENGE that comes with perks, then we look forward to hearing from you!

Please make sure you review our Mission, Vision and Values before applying.
