Tableau Server Admin Platform Expert

Role/Title: - Tableau Server Admin/Platform Expert
Boise , Idaho
Agency Interview Type: Webcam Only

This is a PART TIME position where hours could vary anywhere from 5-40+ on any given week based on the work to be done during that time frame. Candidate must be acceptable to the varied weekly hours AND able to work those hours during the client's normal Mountain Time Zone business hours (with rare exceptions when work must be done off-hours).
Candidates should not be planning to juggle this on top of another full time job requiring work during normal business hours. Please specify the expected work arrangement for your candidate if selected for this position (working full time in another role, working another role part time, working only this role, etc). If you do not answer this question or your answers are determined to be untrue during screening or after candidate is hired, the candidate will be disqualified/removed from the position.
Candidate must have a dedicated home office/workspace that is conducive to productive work. This includes a reliable high-speed internet connection and a personal Windows computer that meets the necessary hardware and software requirements (latest Windows OS and Virus software) to support the development environment. Candidate will supply their own hardware necessary to connect remotely through client's VPN. Confirm you've discussed this w/your candidate and they accept/meet these requirements.
Candidate will need to install Web ex on their personal computer to be able to connect to IDHW servers when they are required to be present for online meetings. Audio and visual are required (when requested). Please confirm you've discussed this with your candidate and the candidate accepts these requirements.
Remote candidates must be located within, and all work must be done within, the contiguous US and candidates must be able to work on the State of Idaho's Mountain Time Zone business hours. Please confirm you have discussed these requirements with the candidate and they accept the requirements.


 This is a PART-TIME role, where total weekly hours will vary widely week-to-week, based upon workload each week. Roughly 15 hours per week is being estimated as a general AVERAGE, though actual hours may be higher or lower depending on the tasks that need to occur during a certain timeframe. For instance, if client is doing a server upgrade, then it may be upwards of 40+ hours in a given week, but if it’s a light week it might be more like 5-10 hours. 

While hours will vary week to week, the hours worked are EXPECTED TO BE WORKED DURING THE CLIENT'S NORMAL MOUNTAIN-TIME BUSINESS HOURS. Exceptions to that would be upgrades or modifications to the production system, which will need to happen outside of business hours, but those will not be a common occurrence, probably only a few times a year, which means candidate in this role must be available to work the hours each week requires, during normal business hours.

As this requires a candidate's availability to vary but could potentially run into the 40+ hours on occasional weeks, candidates SHOULD NOT be trying to juggle this on top of another full-time job already. If it is determined this is the case, even after a candidate is in the role, the candidate will be removed from the position. An ideal situation is someone working in another flexible part-time role currently, who is able to supplement that with this position as well.
