help with loading SharePoint PSSnapin

do i have to have SharePoint installed in order to load the SharePoint PowerShell snapin?

My team has a SharePoint site that we do not manage. However, our SharePoint team is fine with us writing any tools (.NET or PowerShell) to manipulate our data located in our SharePoint site.

The only think is we can't do anything on the SharePoint server itself.

 

So we are wondering if we could use PowerShell from one of our servers (currently does not have SharePoint installed) to  connect and view (not change) our SharePoint data.

 

It this something that is commonly done or even possible?
