The Role:

The Operations team is looking for an experienced IT Support Specialist to help acquire, maintain, and track all the equipment, accounts, and other needs of our own employees so they can do their best work. The Operations team is also responsible for managing cloud infrastructure, automated code testing and deployments, cybersecurity, and more, and this IT Support Specialist role will have many opportunities to learn more about those topics firsthand and shape their career in any of those directions. In fact, the previous person in this role was recently promoted to a Junior DevOps Engineer and we’d love to do that again!

  • Handle asset management (laptops, monitors, keyboards, etc...) using Mobile Device Management software

  • Manage and triage incoming support requests

  • Learn more about the larger duties of the Operations team, with opportunities to shadow other team members and actively contribute to other departments

The team:

Capacity team members enjoy the opportunity and benefits of working at an early-stage artificial intelligence startup, but with leaders who’ve worked at places like Apple, Bayer,, Oracle, Boeing, and many more world-class companies. The culture at Capacity encourages innovation, independent problem solving, and collaboration as we continue to mature our product in the ever-changing world of AI.
