The Systems Administrator will perform server deployments, application installation and configuration, and system monitoring in support of GWLAI web presences, software development and digital collection environments. A successful candidate will be able to work collaboratively with different departments to thoughtfully integration open source tools and enterprise systems to advance the work of GWLAI.
