A BIT ABOUT US
Lever was founded eight years ago to tackle the most strategic challenge that companies face: how to recruit and hire top talent. We’re building the next generation of hiring software that companies like Netflix, Atlassian, KPMG, and McGraw-Hill Education rely on to grow their teams. We've rethought the talent acquisition paradigm and are the innovation leaders in our space and looking for the right people to join us as we scale. 

We’re extraordinarily proud of the company we’ve built so far (not to mention humbled to be recognized as the #1 place to work in San Francisco, as well as a top workplace in the entire United States). Our people are Lever’s biggest competitive advantage and we’ll continue investing in our “Leveroos” and people-first culture.  
 
THE CHALLENGE
We know that the planning and work behind the scenes is what turns good teams into great teams; as one of our Toronto IT Support Specialists you will be a key contributor to Lever’s success. In this role you and the team will keep the everyday operations of the company moving forward fast and securely. Additionally, you will identify bottlenecks, come up with new ideas on how we can build better systems every day. You will have a part in building, testing, and deployment of solutions for our fast-moving and talented team of Lever employees. You and the team will partner with every single operational unit within Lever to ensure that they have the appropriate technology solutions that enable them to more efficiently reach their goals. Currently this role will be done remotely.
 
THE OPPORTUNITY
We’re looking for someone to join the team in a 10 month contract to hire capacity. You are confident in managing day-to-day operations and excel as an enabler to our employees.

We never lose sight of our highest priority: ensuring that all Lever employees are supported and company data secure. These goals drive all that we do, and we’re excited to bring someone on board who will help build the perfect mix of secure and efficient systems while doing the everyday work to keep Lever productive. We know that the work you will do will have a transformative impact to every contributor at Lever.
