Information Services Manager
I work with all aspects of Coffey's information technology (IT) infrastructure—servers, networks, software, desktop computers, etc. I also work on information security (keeping the bad guys out and the data in) and IT development, and I provide technical guidance and support whenever needed.
Customer service is very important in IT—right up there with technical competence. Who cares how much you know if you’re a jerk about it? This job is really about people. How can I help you do what you’re trying to do? When people interact with our IT team, they should come away feeling respected and encouraged.
I am very impressed with the high quality of Coffey's offerings in both print and digital. We have some incredibly sharp employees! (The free peanut butter is pretty great too.)
