Community. Diversity. Inclusion. Creativity. Arts. Humanitarianism. Social justice. Empathy. Step onto the campus of The San Francisco School (SFS), and it’s easy to see examples everywhere showing why this school of 285 learners from age 3 through 8th grade is so special. The School, with its Adventure Playground and large garden, sits in the heart of a vibrant urban neighborhood in San Francisco known as the Portola. For decades, the school has prioritized the arts, emphasized social emotional learning, brought experiential and outdoor learning to life right on its campus, and helped its students not only find but express their true identity. At SFS, students and staff are on a first-name basis with each other, as a way of honoring the equality of each member of this very special village.

This community of learners seeks a technology services coordinator (TSC) to join its small but influential technology team. The TSC plays an essential role delivering tech support to end-users, administering enterprise systems, and managing some technology projects. The school leverages a third-party technology solutions partner to assist with IT engineering. The TSC works under the director of design, engineering, and technology and serves on the Technology Governance Team. The job starts later this summer, preferably in early August

The TSM has three main areas of oversight: administering the IT/IS systems of the school; building partnerships with faculty, staff, and students; and managing the overall technology program.
