DESKTOP SUPPORT SPECIALIST

Pure Sunfarms is a vertically integrated, large-scale, low-cost supplier of high-quality cannabis to the Canadian adult recreation market, headquartered in Delta, BC. As a 50/50 joint-venture of Village Farms and Emerald Health Therapeutics, Pure Sunfarms is backed by one of North America’s leaders in high-tech greenhouse growing.

We are trail blazing this industry with some serious clout – and by serious, we mean a 30-year track record of operating mega-scale greenhouses. We are led by a team of seasoned executives along with a team of cultivation experience from around the world. Let’s just say - we are building and operating on a whole new level.

Here is where you come in as a Desktop Support Analyst.  Not only do you enjoy diagnosing and resolving problems associated with application software and operating systems, you actively search for ways of preventing them altogether. You are passionate about technology and are always hungry to learn more.  While you are trained in “geekspeak” you have the ability to communicate to end-users in a way that makes sense to them.
