Position Summary

Service and Support is a department of Learning Technology within the division of Information Technology Services. The Service Desk, as part of the ITS Service and Support group, provides single point of contact for all University constituents seeking to access IT services. The Service Desk partners with the Service Operations Center in managing client issues and communications relative to enterprise incidents, as well as collaborating with other ITS groups.

The primary purpose of this position is to provide advanced technical support services to the University according to established incident management standards including initial response for all incoming service requests, resolution of Tier 1/Tier 2/Tier 3 issues for enterprise services and triage and appropriate routing and escalation of issues that cannot be resolved at the Service Desk. This position provides clients with consultation via telephone from basic to moderately complex problems with the University's network environment including support of a large standard suite of software applications (as well as customized applications) and supporting desktop environments across multiple hardware platforms. These responsibilities will include providing advanced technical support and issue resolution for enterprise applications and services, including University account administration, Banner, Canvas, email, network file space, network printing, wired and wireless network access, and Active Directory.

Additionally, this position will establish a rapport with assigned VIP workgroups through continuous communications that include regularly scheduled face-to-face meetings, developing a formal training plan with each assigned VIP workgroup to generate advanced understanding of the business processes, critical services, and service availability requirements specific to each assigned group. Acting as the primary point of contact for all service and support issues for assigned VIP workgroups, this position will ensure that client technical support needs are met and proactively verify problem resolution.
Since this position may be in daily contact with University computing technical staff, higher level consulting staff, system programmers of multiple environments and vendor technical support personnel, this position must function with a high degree of independence but also perform well within a team.
