The City of Richmond needs to hire a Director of Information Technology. The position description is here, applications go to mayorsoffice@richmondindiana.gov as noted here.

The person in this role will have some great opportunities to help shape how local government uses technology tools to be more efficient and effective. Yes, there are some things about the current infrastructure to clean up and no, IT in the public sector is probably not going to be as lucrative as it might be in the private sector. But it’s important work in the service of a city that can get caught up and then get ahead, and for a Mayor who has a strong appreciation for good technology management and its importance to running the City well.

I hope you’ll share the position opening with qualified IT professionals that you know, and help us get the right person in the job.
