Along with the other members of the IT team, you’ll participate in a constant cycle of Plan, Do, Check, Act to identify potential improvements in the services we provide and contribute to initiatives to implement them.

The IT team at Hover doesn’t just maintain the corporate systems that keep our employees productive and successful. We also partner with teams across the company--from HR and Workplace to Engineering, Sales, Recruiting, and more--to build and automate processes and systems to improve their capabilities.

You’ll also ensure the security of the network by managing system permissions in Okta and other SaaS environments for both active and exiting employees. Collaborating with our Workplace team in San Francisco, you’ll manage the health and performance of our office network infrastructure and conferencing systems.

  • Experience supporting IT requirements for financial and/or information security audits, such as SOC 2 Type II
