Network & Systems Administrator

Infrastructure & Support Highland Park, Illinois


Position at Aculocity, LLC




Do you want to be our network and systems administrator?


Can you be comfortable being uncomfortable? Are you fine with always speaking your mind? Can you lead, execute, and stay focused despite many distractions, and do the work yourself if needed?


At Aculocity, we fight for the customer’s needs. We are disrupting the data industry by putting the customers’ needs first. We custom-build software designed to deliver value to the customer, and integrate with existing systems and data to give the customer a holistic view of their business. We are a dynamic, fast moving, global technology consulting company that enhances business processes and uses technology to solve business problems and create leverage. Since we launched in 2006, we have delivered customer software development solutions, implementation of software systems, business intelligence and business process solutions.


It takes a special kind of person to be a part of this business in transformation. We are privately owned and expect our team members to act with an owner mindset: Relentless about creating value for the customer. Dogged about finding efficiencies and eliminating waste. Standing arm and arm with the rest of the team until the job is done—and ready to do it again the next day, with a smile.


It is not easy do things differently. But we do it—because we are passionate about improving our business and the lives of the people who use our tools.
