In addition to these technical responsibilities, the candidate will work closely with our End User Computing, Security and Vibe teams across the globe to ensure that all Canvanauts have the best possible experience.

This will involve identifying areas where workplace technology solutions and automation can be leveraged to improve workflows and productivity and ensuring that the technology infrastructure is aligned with the company's long-term goals.
