World Vision is looking for a Director of Support and Infrastructure:
- Define the enterprise technology architecture and strategies, and set all associated policies, standards, and guidelines.
- Define technical evaluation criteria and participate in product selection for technology architecture domains.
- Ensure that proposed architectures are sound and aligned with corporate assets and competencies and provide guidance to ensure proper technical partner / vendor selections.
- Identify and understand trends in the IT landscape.
It’s a senior role for an organization focused on the protection of children, which most people would agree is a pretty noble goal.
They’re large enough to think that PMP certification and ITIL are useful approaches in the management of IT, which may not be to everyone’s taste.
There’s not a ton of information on the work, process and technology. I’m guessing about the location for the job, and I’ll put in a similar guess for compensation: not exceptionally high. Honestly, if money is a key factor, I’m guessing that World Vision can’t compete, and to a certain extent, may not want to. That said, if this opportunity excites you, I suspect you’re better off talking to them than making assumptions.
The location is out by 410/403 and the 401. That’s probably best for those of you in the West, or possibly the North, and certainly for those of you already highway-commuting.
Some of you are probably thinking that PMP and ITIL are good signs, I’m just not necessarily in agreement.
They’re self-identified as a Christian organization. Not everyone has a Christian background, and/or would be comfortable working for an organization that does. That said, I know someone who’s worked with them directly, and who would be happy to say that they’re a nice bunch of people, as you might expect.
Seems tailor-made for a highway commuter (or someone already in the Northwest) looking to improve the world, rather than bring home the bacon, and willing to do so within a Christian organization.
