Job Description

A good team leader can mean all the difference in the world.

As a supported* or volunteer IT manager, you will guide teams to improve and enhance our systems in order to more effectively support Bible translation. 

Today, over 2000 people groups, 170 million people, still don’t have the Bible translated into their languages! Wycliffe USA believes the Word of God can transform lives when people hear it in their own language or form, and we urgently need you to join the team!

Job Location:  Global, can be done remotely

Every day is interesting! One day you might lead the IT department’s operational and strategic planning, manage financial aspects of the department, and direct IT research. Later you could manage IT staff, from recruitment onward, as well as negotiate and administrate vendor and service agreements. Another day you would deliver support plans for implementing systems, manage all aspects of deployment, maintenance and development of IT systems, and oversee end user services.
