About Information Technology (IT)
The role of IT goes beyond the traditional Information Technology “service provider.” Many of the innovative ideas and projects that shape the company’s future and move SCE forward are dependent on technology. IT employees are at the heart of these projects, collaborating, designing and executing technology solutions transforming our industry. We are also responsible for the information technology necessary to build, operate and maintain the electrical system and deliver power to over 5 million SCE customers. This comprises maintenance and improvement of the technologies supporting all functions at SCE, including but not limited to communicating with our customers and each other, sustaining a reliable modern electricity grid, keeping our employees and communities safe, and enabling the successful strategies of all our operating units in their quest to better serve our customers. The need for optimized, efficient operations, solution delivery, and business planning functions within IT are increasingly a priority. IT has been relying more and more on its ability to forecast work, resource, and financial needs as well as to govern these activities. This is vital for successful development and resolution of rate cases and in developing viable operational plans.
You want to apply your expertise with continuous improvement to increase efficiencies across the organization. You are inspired when you see you are transforming the organization through service management. At the end of the day, you desire to drive real change—for the better for everyone. We do too.
So how do you fit here? You love to learn fast, you have a consulting mindset, and are technologically focused. Your contract and vendor management skills bend towards critical analysis, and your interpersonal skills yield collaborative, inclusive, and results driven teams. We need you to be a consultant and leverage your critical thinking skills, strong problem-solving ability, and your ability to process information rapidly. We anticipate you’ll have significant impacts on the IT organization, Edison and beyond.
