Senior IT Administrator / Manager at Virta Health
San Francisco, CA, US

Virta is the first company with a clinically-proven treatment to safely and sustainably reverse type-2 diabetes without the use of medications or surgery. Our innovations in nutritional biochemistry, data science and digital tools combined with our clinical expertise are shifting the diabetes treatment paradigm from management to reversal. Our mission: reverse type 2 diabetes in 100 million people by 2025.

As our senior IT administrator, you will work closely with Information Security, the People and Operations teams,  and a wide range of internal and external IT customers in several locations, ensuring their needs are met while helping design our IT strategy for the medium to long term. As Virta operates in a highly regulated environment, you’ll be working to enforce, maintain, and improve our zero-trust, cloud-first IT infrastructure while interfacing with established healthcare IT partners. And because Virta is experiencing very fast growth, you’ll be designing and implementing scalable, automated systems for just about everything in IT.

If you’re motivated and have the right stuff, this can be an IT Manager role today or within 12 months.
