Technology Systems Manager

The Drew School - San Francisco, California - Full time

SUMMARY

Drew School, an independent high school in San Francisco, knows and believes in teenagers — their ideas, their dreams, their opinions, and their potential. That’s why Drew is a community that challenges the traditional definition of success and celebrates achievement one student at a time. The result is that Drew's students develop into fascinating individuals who are sought after by colleges and who know themselves well when they step out into the world.

Now Drew seeks a talented and passionate technology systems manager (TSM) to help guide and support the world of technology at Drew. The TSM has three main areas of oversight: administering the IT/IS systems of the school; building partnerships with faculty, staff, and students; and managing the overall technology program. This represents an exciting time at Drew and for the technology program as the school defines and launches its next strategic plan in the Fall of 2021. The TSM reports to the CFO/COO and starts later this summer.
