The Hampshire College IT department is looking for an awesome systems programmer to join our fun, flexible office. We want to share what working in IT @ Hampshire is like, and why we love our jobs.
Who Are We?
Applications and Web Services is one group within the centralized IT department at Hampshire. We have many responsibilities within our group of 6 people, which could be summarized as:
- College websites (dozens and dozens of them)
- Enterprise applications (for admissions, course registration, human resources, and more)
- Reporting services (both ad-hoc as well as longitudinal analytics)
We do many other things, but that highlights most of it. This position we’re seeking to fill is a systems programmer to work on the many different sites and integrations connected with the College’s enterprise resource planning system (ERP), Ellucian Colleague.
What Is Working at Hampshire Like?
First of all, we’re people. We have likes and dislikes. We work hard. We have fun. And we like to eat and talk about food. A lot. Some of us love to cook, bike, hike, walk, ski, paddle, play games, watch movies, play music, read; the list goes on and on. We have varied interests and skills both in and out of the office. I suppose one way to convey some of the awesomeness of our office is to give you a small glimpse…
We share a small house as an office, which means we have a kitchen and lots of fun!
Adjustable sit/stand desks are pretty sweet.
We have the best views.
Our neighbors, the adorable sheep, are the best! The farm center sometimes bring them over to graze, and they love to greet us in the morning.
We’re totally nerdy.
Want to learn a new programming language… or seven?
Yeah, we like games too.
Hey, we said we love food. Celebrating birthdays with homemade deliciousness is always a blast.
Do you like to go hiking on your lunch break?
The day when new students move in is a ton of fun!
We have an entire collection of adorable poppers to play with. 🙂
There’s a pretty amazing spiral staircase built into a tree on campus. Want to go for a walk in the woods?
The Eric Carle Museum is right next door on campus!
Bacon is often a topic of discussion, but we have non-meat eaters in our office, too!
We work hard, we play hard, and we respect the creative efforts of everyone to make our office both productive and fun.
