Exciting new opportunity

 Our client is the best kept secret in the Biotech/Pharma space located right here in Metro-West.  With 150 in the company, 90 in the corporate offices located in Hopkinton and the balance in Maryland, they create products that are instrumental for the giants like Genzyme, Shire and others to continue to create disease fighting pharmaceuticals.  
The Senior IT Support Administrator is a newly created position reporting to one the executives of the company.  They are looking to bring all day to day IT from desktop support, systems administration and networking back inhouse from a third party vendor.  They will retain the vendor as a partner when needed but the ideal is that with the creation of the Senior IT Support Administrator role they will need to call on them much less frequently.  
The position will be to take full ownership of all day to day IT operations and administration for this 150 person company.  They have multiple buildings in a campus style environment here in MA and one building with a part time IT person in MD.  This is a hybrid role where you will be responsible for all desktop/workstation support issues as well as be the Systems and Network Administrator.  They are running Windows 8/10 at the desktop and have recently migrated everyone to Office 365.  In addition there are a small handful of physical with many more virtual Windows 2008/2012 servers running VMWare.  The entire network backbone is Cisco based and one of the projects in the very near future will be to upgrade all the networking equipment.  The key is to have the knowledge and ability to do the higher level Systems and Network functions while still be grounded enough to work with users up to 50% of the time  
This is a full time permeant position with a rock solid company that offers cutting edge technology while maintaining a work/life balance that is not offered in the monster companies where you are just a number.  There is an exceptional benefits package that includes BCBS health insurance, Delta Dental, vision plans, life insurance, LT and ST disability as well as a 6% match on 401k.  They have a flexible work schedule and a very generous PTO program.  If you are looking to get away from the grind but still want to work with the latest and greatest technology while not having to travel into Boston you should call one of our IT recruiters today for immediate consideration.  You can call 781-938-7950 or email your resume to Woburn@AshleyEllis.com
