Library Technology Manager, Chelmsford Public Library (Chelmsford)

The Chelmsford (MA) Public Library is in search of a Technology Manager who is hands-on, detail-oriented, well-versed with user technology and networking, and an inventive problem-solver. Our next Technology Manager will have up-to-date knowledge of the technology landscape, enjoy helping others learn, and be the first to jump in and figure things out. Our ideal candidate will have experience working in libraries/municipalities/nonprofits, troubleshooting problems in-person and remotely, and seeing projects through from concept to completion. 

We’re looking for a professional who has experience being hands-on when installing, maintaining, or troubleshooting hardware and software, whether the problem is simple or challenging. We rely on robust, reliable, accessible, and secure technology services for staff and patrons; our next technology manager will take pride in making this happen.  

Attention to detail in this position is a must; we want the person who can plan a seamless network move to the cloud and also takes the time to double-check that the laptop for the new employee is working without a hitch. We would love to hear about your experience with data management and tracking statistics.  

In addition to keeping our tech systems running smoothly, you should be excited about what’s next on the technology front! You’ll work with library management to plan, develop, and enhance the systems that make library services possible and coordinate with Town departments and contractors to keep projects moving forward. Like to learn new things? We can help with that. Big picture thinker? Just what we’re looking for.  

Our preferred candidate will enjoy sharing their know-how with others. This person supports, instructs, and trains staff, verbally and in writing, in the use of library technology. This position will be our in-house expert and enjoy sharing that expertise when supporting and training staff. Do you have positive and collaborative relationships with your co-workers? If yes, then you will be a great fit for our supportive, smart, and fun team. 

Experience working in a library or a municipality is strongly preferred. Public service is a driving value here in our library and we want to know that it is for you too.   

Our ideal candidate will be someone who succeeds when working independently or collaboratively, thrives on variety and challenges, has excellent interpersonal skills, and knows how to turn ideas and plans into action.

* Bachelor’s degree strongly preferred plus relevant technology experience, including networking, Active Directory, cloud services, and IT security; familiarity with Microsoft Azure is a plus
