IT Director Jobs in California

Examine business needs and address them by directing technology teams. Information technology (IT) directors supervise employees to ensure that all new projects and day-to-day technical activities conform to their companies’ objectives. When appropriate, they coordinate with outside vendors such as outsourced tech support to guarantee that these goals are being met across their technology departments.

IT directors work closely with management personnel as well, contributing to strategic planning initiatives focused on boosting productivity, streamlining processes, and gaining critical competitive advantages. After identifying and analyzing company needs, they propose solutions through infrastructure changes and other initiatives. They also guide and recommend technology investments that are best suited for meeting current objectives.
