Web Operations Specialist

Web Operations Specialist -, x7026

Tyler manages and supports web-based platforms and tools that interface with Lewis & Clark’s information systems. If that sounds somewhat nebulous, well, have you been on the Internet recently? To paraphrase an esteemed late 20th century philosopher; “(The Web) moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it”. But chances are if it’s got an HTTP(S) in front of it, Tyler’s keeping an eye on it.

He graduated from Connecticut College in 2000 with a BA in Religious Studies, then promptly freaked out about how he was going to pay for food with said degree. Luckily, upon moving to Portland in late 2000, a local computer shop gave him his first job in IT. That shop was Belmont Computers, and it’s owner was Tim Smale. Yes, that Tim Smale in IT Ops. 15 years and many tech hats later, Tyler is thrilled to be working with his old boss/mentor here at Lewis & Clark.
