MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Feb. 27, 2012) — The ServiceMaster Company announced today it will fill 100 new IT positions in the coming weeks, ranging from technical support to management positions.
These new IT positions, which will be based in Memphis, are part of an overall hiring effort that ServiceMaster announced at the start of the year.

“I’m very excited that we’re hiring for positions that are critical to ServiceMaster’s future growth,” said Linda Goodspeed, the company’s chief information officer. “My goal is to create a world-class information technology team that not only provides outstanding technical support to our businesses, but also helps transform our customers’ experiences.”
Qualifications will vary by position, but overall ServiceMaster is looking for highly-motivated candidates with solid IT background and work experience, said Goodspeed, who joined the company as CIO in October. Most of the positions require a bachelor’s degree in computer science or related field, but an associate’s degree is acceptable for some of the roles.
