Current Employment Opportunities

Subarctic Media – Radio Mankato has an immediate, full-time opening for an IT Technician.

We are a locally owned group of 19 radio stations in Southern Minnesota.  Our offices are in Mankato, Owatonna, Fairmont, Rochester, and Marshall.  This position will require some market-to-market travel, but the applicant would office out of Mankato.

This position will be responsible for assisting in all aspects of maintaining and expanding our IT infrastructure, as well as assisting users with their everyday needs.  The successful candidate will be a self-starter, strong communicator, creative problem-solver, and quick learner, and have an unwavering commitment to finding and delivering the best possible solution for any given challenge.

Experience working in a broadcast facility is a plus, but is NOT required… we’ll gladly teach you! The ideal candidate will be excited to learn about our broadcast-specific equipment, so they can work closely with our engineers on projects where IT, RF, and audio technologies intersect.

Qualified candidates will have:

  • A great attitude, regardless of whether the project is exciting or routine… “can-do, make-it-happen”
  • A commitment to quality work and follow-through in everything you do
  • The ability to stay organized in a rapidly changing environment, and prioritize tasks accordingly
  • A track record of working equally well as an individual and as a team member
  • Good communication with users – able to present concepts in a way that’s helpful, friendly, relatable
  • Grace under pressure – able to keep your cool in all situations, think rationally, and maintain the calm
  • Willingness to always document your work, no matter how small the change
  • The ability to complete tasks in a well-planned, thorough, and security-minded manner (keeping systems available = staying on the air = happy listeners!)
  • Experience working with and supporting PC hardware
  • Experience working with and supporting Windows and Office 365
  • Experience with Microsoft server OSes and Active Directory
  • At least some basic experience in *NIX concepts and operations/administration
  • A working knowledge of basic TCP/IP concepts and commonly-used protocols
  • A basic skill set in routing and switching that is vendor-agnostic
  • Ability to perform basic wiring tasks (ie., can you make a Cat5/Cat6 patch cable?)
  • Ability to lift at least 50 pounds, and to work in a variety of settings (at a desk, at a workbench, on rackmounted equipment, etc)
  • Ability, both legally and physically, to drive a car, van, or other passenger vehicle for short trips between work sites.

The candidate must have a minimum of 3 years of IT-related experience or a minimum of a 2-year degree.
