Burke's is an independent K-8 gender-inclusive all-girls’ school located on a 3.5-acre campus in San Francisco with a 112-year tradition of excellence. Its mission is to educate, encourage, and empower girls. The school combines strong academic and co-curricular programs with an emphasis on project-based learning and personal growth in a diverse and inclusive community. Burke’s emphasizes the development of fundamental and higher-level critical thinking skills in an atmosphere of creativity, exploration, academic rigor, and joyful learning.

Burke's is seeking a thoughtful, dedicated, and talented IT and information systems operations director, to lead its core technology program. The IT/IS operations director reports to the director of curriculum and innovation, who also oversees the library, makery, and innovation team. The IT/IS department includes a full-time technology support specialist managed by the IT/IS operations director. As the leader of a small department, the IT/IS operations director must be hands-on with day-to-day tactical issues, but also strategic with planning and project management. Burke's is seeking a technology leader who is attuned to industry best practices and adept at implementing scalable solutions that serve end-user needs. Partnerships with third-party technology providers and engineers are critical for Burke's to ensure ongoing reliability and support. The next IT/IS operations director will ideally be able to start this spring, to allow for a graceful handoff from the current director, who retires after 20 years of service to the school at the end of June.
