@Mendo Cath has decided to step down as Director after more years of service in this role. He has most recently completed the reorganization of our forums, and his work and leadership in getting us upgraded to Xenforo 2.0 was invaluable. Mendo, thank you for your service. :hug

With Mendo bowing out, I am in need of a Director of Technology. This position is a Director, and as such is an Executive who reports directly to the Keeper of the Chronicles. Whoever fills this position is responsible for meeting the technical needs of the administration and community including keeping our message boards, website, and Discord functional, among others.

Duties and Responsibilities:
  • Serve as an Executive and give advice to the Keeper and Amyrlin both in your Department and on site-wide issues as needed
  • Project management for all technical aspects relating to our site and boards and act as a supervisor for Department staff, including handling personnel issues such as disputes, hiring, firing, etc.
  • Come up with and implement new technical ideas for the community
  • Oversee our server administration
Requirements:
  • Must be a Senior Member for at least one year and must be a member in good standing
  • Must be trustworthy, organized and a self-starter
  • Must have knowledge of technologies necessary to operate our website, including but not limited to CMS platforms and server maintenance
  • Must be able to recruit and train technical talent; must be able to assign tasks to staff members and make sure they are completed. The ideal candidate is one who can manage and communicate with our technical staff in working towards ongoing site improvement; an ability and willingness to learn what you do not already know, plus strong leadership skills, is a must.
  • Must be able to spot areas that are in need of improvement and come up with solutions/recommendations
  • Must be willing and able to spend 15 hours a week or more handling Department and technical issues.
  • Must be able to respond to requests from other Directors/admins in a timely manner.
While not required, prior experience in the Department of Technology is a plus.

If you feel like you would be a good fit for this position please send an email to keeper@tarvalon.net and amyrlin@tarvalon.net with the title APPLICATION--DIRECTOR OF TECHNOLOGY--YOUR NAME HERE. Your email should include why you think you would be a good fit, any ideas you have for the Department and a summary of applicable skills. Applications are due no later than August 21, 2022.
