Seeing someone do the same repetitive clicking to complete mundane tasks frustrates you.  Entering the same information into multiple screens makes you cringe.  You love diving into code and scripts to figure out why sections are not firing.  As an Scripting and Automation Engineer you'll be a vital part of the IT team allowing our team to work smarter, not harder; allowing IT to scale with the company without always just doing more work.  The ideal candidate will be comfortable identifying manual operational tasks and finding creative and cutting edge solutions for automation. You should be comfortable seeing a project through from start to end; including identifying areas for improvement, researching the best way to tackle the problem, being able to describe to others why you chose the approach you did, and then implementing the solution; you are both a thinker and a doer.
