Our team enjoys the privilege of providing emotional products and services that define and enhance people's lifestyles.
Who are you?
You are a bright, energetic I.T. professional who is experienced in all aspects of the craft, from networking to Cloud infrastructure to software development to user experience. You take complex concepts and communicate them clearly, concisely and with ease to stakeholders of different backgrounds. You have an insatiable passion for learning all things I.T. You are a logical person, and an active listener, who can navigate straight to the heart of a matter. You feel compelled to search for creative and unconventional solutions to problems that, on the surface, may seem unsolvable.

At present, this includes deep involvement with SAP, Salesforce.com, Magento, Internet telephony, in-house Microsoft Hyper-V servers, and AWS servers. You will be a good steward and protector of corporate data such as customers’ personally identifiable information. You will liaise with other Yamaha organizations such as in Japan and the U.S.
You will oversee upgrades, replacements, and additions to our I.T. systems. This may include integration, programming, systems architecture and configuration whether outsourced or performed in-house. Two professional and experienced systems analysts will report directly to you.
What else are we looking for?
You are someone who will not only keep our organization running smoothly in the present, but also support and lead us into the future as we expand our analytics capabilities, management support processes, and integrations between systems and companies.
