We are looking for an IT Hardware Specialist to help us manage the desktop hardware devices that we provide for our colleagues, and to help us expand our portfolio of hardware offerings in both our work-from-home and office environments.
After listening to colleagues about their daily hardware needs, you’ll put your market knowledge and product insights to work, finding potential technical solutions and collaborating with vendors to research and test hardware options.
Once you have a complete picture of market offerings, you’ll write detailed recommendations on what will work best for us. You’ll also collaborate closely with our IT team to incorporate these hardware choices into our existing Windows and Linux environments.
Your work will involve a large portfolio of hardware types, including remote working solutions, workstations, monitors, and various desktop peripherals such as microphones, headsets, and other interface technologies. As you manage the lifecycle of our existing technology, you’ll be expected to proactively search for opportunities to innovate and upgrade.
As new technology is introduced, you’ll assess long-term performance using both automatically generated metrics and end-user assessment to inform future product selection. Your daily work will directly improve the user experience for colleagues across the firm.
