Job Description

Role: MAC Administrator Location: Rye, NY Duration: Long Term Administration of MAC servers used by the Agility -The servers are located in Rye as well as Argentina, Colombia and Mexico. In addition, we will add 2 new servers as a result of the WEMEA implementation (Corby and Madrid) and 2 new servers for the CEE implementation (Warsaw, Moscow). Main responsibilities would include the following: Deployment of a standard image across all Agility servers including operating system and applications Deployment of security patches and operating system updates via Lithium Server monitoring (alerts) via Casper and resolution and clearing of alerts Hardware updates as required for the Rye based servers Sustainment of development and QA environments in Rye. Pre Media Support - Essentially, most of the MAC users throughout the company are on their own in terms of support. The local I.T. Teams provide support on a "best effort" basis and the rest is contracted out to local suppliers. Through the implementation of Agility we have found inconsistencies in the set up of the MAC desktops and candidate is consulted more and more by local I.T. when it comes to the MAC and related tools. The MAC clients are not locked down and as a result users can download software onto the client making it difficult to support the desktops. Additional responsibilities would include the following: Ensure standard and consistent use of fonts for creative / production purposes. Our experience over the last few months has been that management of fonts is left to the users and has been poorly managed. We have found damaged fonts, duplicate fonts and fonts we don't have licenses to use. In addition, we have had to assist the creative groups in LATAM to clean up their font libraries in order to not adversely affect the production output (high resolution PDF documents) Ensure standard licensing and use of Adobe Creative Suite (CS) - Our experience has shown that their is no consistency with respect to version management of the InDesign Creative Suite of applications. This includes: Photoshop, InDesign and other creative tools under the Adobe Creative Suite. Lack of version management is the direct result of not having the clients locked down. In addition, the way Adobe products are licensed is inconsistent from country to country so we would work with Adobe to achieve a global licensing agreement (or something equivalent) Integration of MAC clients (and servers) into Active Directory - As a result of not having the clients and servers not bonded we leave ourselves open to the problems described above, In addition, we would reap the usual benefits of Active Directory like single passwords / password synchronization, centralized client management and overall improved security. Integration of Color Proofing and Pre Media Software to Agility - Candidate has worked with common packages such as Pitstop and Apogee which are used to ensure quality control of print documents with respect to color output. This is mostly supported by third parties in the markets. Agility (Brochure Tool ) Implementation Technical Support Software Installation - Works with software vendor and local I.T. in creating server images containing Web Image and Traxtion for purposes of installing the software locally. Version Control of Traxtion - Coordinates the software update of MAC Servers with respect to the Traxtion Modules.
