IT Technician

San Francisco, CA

PlanGrid is looking for a hands-on, tech savvy, problem-solving aficionado/a to join us as an IT Technician. 

The IT Technician at PlanGrid is a position that will require a wide range of experience, from Active Directory administration (GPOs included) to mobile device and patch management to configuring SaaS apps for SAML via Okta. 

The environment is very fast paced and SaaS forward. We are leveraging SaaS in order to be a lightweight and nimble IT department. Gone are the days of full disk imaging for deployment and replacing internal components in laptops (for the most part), our goal is to never have to touch a laptop/tablet/phone for deployment, yet still be able to manage the device over its lifetime. 

Currently, PlanGrid is in a state of growth. We're not so big that we have IT roles separated out, or too small to not be doing anything of interest. This gives any prospective IT team member a unique opportunity to gain experience across a wide range of technologies and systems that may not be available at more established or smaller companies. 

This is an integral role for our growth as a company. We are scaling quickly, and in order for us to continue bringing the trillion dollar construction industry into the future, we need you to help us build and grow our IT infrastructure as we evolve.
