  • Build Infrastructure strategies, road maps and standards.

  • Create relationships and collaborate with other Farm Bureau IT Enterprise Architects and front-line business partners.

  • College degree (MIS preferred) or equivalent plus eight years of relevant experience required.

  • Experience with a cross-discipline of expertise including server, network, data, storage, cloud, application/web servers and services and virtualization,

  • Familiarity with identity management, threat management, application and infrastructure security.

  • Working knowledge of common regulatory requirements such as HIPAA, SOX/MAR, FINRA, FTC, etc. and their relationship to infrastructure requirements.

  • Understands emerging technologies and their applicability to our business model.

What We Offer You:

When you're on our team, you get more than a great paycheck. You'll hear about career development and educational opportunities. We offer an enhanced 401K with a match, low cost health, dental, and vision benefits, and life and disability insurance options. We also offer paid time off, including holidays and volunteer time, casual Fridays and teams who know how to have fun. Add to that an onsite wellness facility with fitness classes and programs, a daycare center, a cafeteria, and even an onsite medical clinic. Farm Bureau....where the grass really IS greener!
