Our Purpose

At Deloitte, we are driven to inspire and help our people, organization, communities, and country to thrive. Our Purpose is to build a better future by accelerating and expanding access to knowledge. Purpose defines who we are and gives us reason to exist as an organization.

By living our Purpose, we will make an impact that matters.

Our Vancouver office is looking for a Technology Specialist to oversee the technology and support requirements for the Deloitte Greenhouse.

About the team

The Deloitte Greenhouse is a client facing space for cultivation – of ideas, relationships, and opportunities – to help accelerate breakthroughs. It is Deloitte’s innovative client presentation center and high-tech lab. In the Greenhouse, we focus on visually presenting innovative business and technology solutions, big data analytics, as well as Deloitte’s service offerings beyond our standard client facilities. We focus on ensuring a positive and unique experience, and frequently host senior leaders and business executives from our client’s organizations.

What will your typical day look like?

The successful candidate will work primarily within our Deloitte Greenhouse in downtown Vancouver. As a member of the End User Technologies team (EUT) within Deloitte’s Information Technology Services organization (ITS), the successful candidate will report to ITS management, but will also work closely with the Greenhouse stakeholders to assist in the preparation, support and delivery of client presentations and content. The role requires the candidate to possess strong oral and written communication skills as there will be opportunities to deliver small-scale presentations to Deloitte clients. The successful candidate will provide technology support, participate in planning sessions and curate our Discovery Zone space (a collection of new technologies and entrepreneur prototypes from VR/AR, AI, IOT…) for Greenhouse events. Some physical activities such as setting up, relocating, dismantling IT hardware will be required. Onsite work and some travel expected.
