The Colorado River Municipal Water District (CRMWD) was created in 1949 by the 51st Texas State Legislature for the purpose of providing raw water to the West Texas cities of Big Spring, Odessa, and Snyder. Today, in addition to these original member communities, the District also provides raw water to the cities of Midland, San Angelo, Stanton, Robert Lee, Grandfalls, Abilene, and the Millersville-Doole Water Supply Corporation, supplying wholesale raw water to more than 600,000 residents. In a unique water supply arrangement, the District also operates an environmentally recognized “diverted water” system. This system captures lesser quality, highly mineralized low flow water from the Colorado River and diverts or sells this still-valuable water commodity to existing petroleum industries for use in their secondary oil and gas recovery operations.
The District’s IT System Administrator reports to the Operations Manager and is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Information Technology services area for the District, including troubleshooting hardware, software, and network operating system; implementation of new software and hardware and support of existing systems; maintaining hardware and software maintenance agreements; overseeing security of District hardware, software, and electronic files; managing the District’s Telephone System; and managing connections to the District’s computer servers at remote locations.
The CRMWD is seeking a multi-talented IT professional ready to invest themselves into the organization. This position requires a bachelor’s degree in a technical field as well as five years of progressive experience.
The District is offering a highly competitive salary for this position of $80,000 to $100,000 dependent on qualifications and experience. The organization’s benefits package includes health insurance for which the District pays 100% of employees’ premiums and 70% for dependents. It also features a generous leave policy including vacation, sick, personal, emergency, and funeral leave as well as 10 paid holidays; longevity pay and continuing education assistance; life insurance; and the free use of District recreational facilities. The District also offers a fully-funded defined benefit retirement plan and an optional 457b deferred compensation plan.
