Head of Information Technology

Boston, Massachusetts, United States Full-time

Quantopian is looking for a Head of IT to manage all our corporate infrastructure.  You will report directly to the CTO.  This will likely become a managerial role as the IT team expands to handle our growing needs. 

As Head of IT, you will:

  • Manage our Google Apps infrastructure (no Exchange!)
  • Manage our corporate networking infrastructure (wifi, routers, switches, plus our office VPN) and ensuring that our network design properly supports our needs and future growth.
  • Work with our security team to administer anti-virus and mobile device management software
  • Manage the lifecycle of internal assets (desktop hardware, software licenses, mobile devices)
  • Ensure our internal audiovisual needs are met (videoconferencing systems, etc)
  • Work with our CISO to design and maintain our policies around physical office security
  • Work with our Chief Compliance Officer to ensure compliance around all corporate IT policies

You'll also constantly be thinking about how to improve all the above processes, to make them more efficient, automated, and user-friendly.  While the majority of our 50-person team at Quantopian is highly technical and uses OS X, you'll have to occasionally provide desktop support (on OS X and Windows).

Requirements for this position:

  • Specific knowledge in Windows configuration, troubleshooting, and security maintenance.
  • Proven ability to take multiple simultaneous projects from start to finish without much oversight.
  • Curiosity about how systems work under the hood.
  • Customer-service-focused mentality to help make everyone at Quantopian as productive as possible.
