The company is looking for a self-starter with a can do attitude, willing and able to own smaller projects while also using zendesk to manage incoming tickets from internal employees that range anywhere from a tier 1 issue all the way to a tier 3 issue. No previous OSX Server knowledge necessary, but an understanding of and willingness to learn server technology as it relates to the Media and Entertainment industry is a must.

  • Bonus but not required, familiarity with digital media assets, file types and footage/media specs.
  • Eagerness to tackle and troubleshoot both simple and complex that may be outside of the typical scope of support for a System Administrator; due to the size of the company, this position is responsible for most technology related issues at Brave New Films.

  • Previous experience with Apple Remote Desktop.
