What is CRC and what does it do?
We are an internal, cost recovery endpoint development and support team at the university, which means we live on our bottom line and strive to provide customer value every single day.
Our techs are self-starters and independent thinkers, technically minded but with a significant set of soft skills and know how to improvise when needed. Most spend their day moving about our clients' buildings and cycling through our home base, so the group is active, knowledgeable and fun.
2018 is CRC's 20th anniversary, and we are going strong. We welcome change and what is coming next while never forgetting our core values of client service and technical expertise.
What would I do as a CRC Manager?
You would direct a team of 12 or more techs who are involved in multiple services across a variety of clients.
You would meet with clients often, championing the user experience on every project. You'd build new services to fill University needs, develop and lead their team members, as well as collaborate across CRC, our Clients, and University IT.
Beyond the day to day management of your team and support of your clients, you would be a part of a group of leaders defining and executing CRC's ever-evolving strategy and balancing it with client priorities and University needs.
