Information Technology Specialist II
Job ID: R0038872 | IT Support | Full Time | Charlottesville, VA
The Department of Engineering Systems and Environment seeks applications for Information Technology Specialist II.

The Technology Specialist II will assist users/departments in implementing requests or proposals and in deriving needs assessments. They use knowledge of systems analysis to implement and support technical solutions. They seek assistance when guidelines are inadequate, significant deviations are proposed, or when unanticipated problems arise. Technology Specialist II employees are distinguished from Technical Support 1 employees by their skill development and application of technical skills, additional variation in activities, latitude to apply skills to solve routine problems without review, and latitude to devise approaches and methods to performing assignments. Technology Specialist II employees perform routine, daily activities without supervisory intervention. They perform longer-term assignments under immediate supervision. They assist Technical Support 1 employees in solving routine problems, if necessary. They may train, serve as a resource, and provide guidance to Technical Support 1 employees. Their interactions are typically with fellow team members, but they also have interactions with assigned student, faculty, or staff clients. They may work with external vendors or service providers.

The successful candidate will be expected to:
  • Analyze current and proposed departmental/user hardware and software systems. Develop and maintain systems for the various constituencies within the unit.
  • Review proposals that consist of objectives, scope, and user expectations. Gather facts, analyze data, and prepare proposal synopses comparing alternatives in terms of cost, time, and availability of resources.
  • Analyze problems on computer applications and systems for students, faculty, and staff. Provide technical assistance to departmental user support staff.
  • Provide individual and/or group instruction and training to students, faculty, and/or staff on computer technologies.
  • Provide technical support for research and development initiatives and for the implementation of new technologies for adoption.
  • Write structured programs, as appropriate, using technologically current programming languages to support systems.
  • In addition to the above job responsibilities, other duties may be assigned.

  • Bachelor's degree in computer science, MIS, computer engineering, or related discipline required.
  • At least one year of experience required. Relevant experience may be considered in lieu of a degree.
