Job Description

If you want to join a hard-working team that shares a commitment to keeping the City of Sacramento’s water safe, clean, and running efficiently, consider a career with the City of Sacramento, Department of Utilities.

The City of Sacramento Department of Utilities (DOU) seeks an Information Technologist Supervisor to supervise professional and technical staff involved with systems analysis, systems programming/systems administration, programming, customer support and/or computer operations work for the SCADA section at the Department of Utilities; prepares information technology studies and reports; assists in development and implementation of goals and policies; supervises and assists in preparation of budgets and equipment acquisition programs.

This is a supervisory-level classification populated with multiple incumbents. The Information Technology Supervisor’s duties are primarily administrative/supervisory in nature but also involve professional information technology work. Information Technology Supervisors interface with City officials, public/private agencies, outside consultants and others and may assist the Chief Information Officer by developing, proposing and implementing information technology solutions for a variety of issues. The classification of Information Technology Supervisor is distinguished from the next lower information technology classification by the incumbent’s full responsibility for supervising the activities of one or more units in the Information Technology Office or all aspects of a major department operation, and because oversight of staff by lower-level Information technology classifications is considered incidental duties. The Information Technology Supervisor is distinguished from the next higher classification of Information Technology Manager in that the latter describes a manager with broader responsibility for one or more large divisions who may also serve in the absence of the Chief Information Officer. The City of Sacramento requires all newly appointed employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of employment. 

Experience: Four years of progressively responsible experience in the fields of systems analysis, systems programming, network administration, application programming, customer support, computer operations or similar field in a multi-platform information systems environment, including at least one year as a project lead or team leader.

Education: A Bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university with a major in computer science, information systems, business information systems, business administration or a closely related field.

Substitutions: Additional qualifying experience may substitute for education on a year-for-year basis. Professional certification in one or more fields of information technology may substitute for one year of education or one year of experience
