APU is seeking employees who desire to engage in our thriving culture by cultivating community through professional interactions, demonstrating a posture of lifelong learning, and modeling Christ-like character. Working together, employees at APU commit to establishing a university atmosphere that is edifying to God and to one another.

The Director of IMT Engineering will strategically lead and ensure supervision of the IMT Engineering department, an agile development and operations unit responsible for the life-cycle development and support of core technology infrastructure and integration middleware for the University. This includes internal platform services such as cloud and data center services, multi-campus network, software engineering, identity and access management, directory services, integration middleware, and databases. As central IT shifts to become a platform provider, you will serve as the group product manager/owner for our core compute, storage, identity and integration middleware, which will increasingly be leveraged and extended by the rest of IT, federated IT, partners, and customers through productized and programmatic interfaces.

The services provided by this unit support all other service delivery within IMT and university-wide day-to-day business operations. As such, your main goal is to provide a stable, reliable, scalable, supportable and sustainable IT infrastructure which requires recent innovation from computer science disciplines as well as business insight for continuous improvement through DevOps, Lean, Agile, and product management thinking. You will champion continuous and iterative improvement by streamlining value streams, agile team structures, and moving toward agile target IT Architecture, which is cloud first, API enabled, and open-standards based.

As the Director, you are accountable for all staff, budgets, service quality and service improvement. This position requires a rare combination of senior managerial experience and technical leadership-you must be able to attract and motivate talented technical staff and guide them to design for the future as well as support the present. The ideal candidate would have had direct previous experience as a systems administrator, network administrator, and/or software development lead. You will lead approximately a dozen amazing staff, including an assistant director who will help share the supervisory load. The position reports to the Executive Director of Information Technology.

Required Education

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related field. As this position translates between technical and business concerns a Business related degree would greatly assist. Master's Degree a plus.
  • Certification: Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) desirable.

Required Experience

    Five to seven years of demonstrated technical management/supervisory experience in systems operations and development. Seven to ten years of experience in several Information Technology fields
