IT Unit Manager - System Support

Location: Sheetz Corporate - Claysburg, PA


We sell hot dogs, beer, gas, and a bunch of other things, but we’re really in the business of “convenience” and that should resonate with you.  At Sheetz, we have a history of making our customers’ lives easier. We pioneered self-service touch screens for ordering food. We rolled out our industry leading Sheetz mobile app long before curbside pickup was around. Although we’re not a tech company, technology has been at the forefront of our success. And who makes that happen? You do! 


Building, integrating and supporting the cutting-edge applications that power 600+ stores, 22,000 employees and millions of customers isn’t an easy job, but that’s why we do it!  And we do it in an award-winning culture that’s casual and fun.
