Must have exceptional communication skills, and a proven track record in providing consultative, implementation and support services in the following technologies:
The person we are looking for:
All About Efficiency – The main focus of our Network Team is to make things happen better and faster for our clients and service team. If you’re the right person for this job, you’re all about constant improvement, and are willing to put in the time and energy to build a better mousetrap, and then tear it apart and build it all over again and make it even better than you did the first time.
A Problem Whisperer – New problem? No problem! It’s just another puzzle to you, waiting to be solved. You’re the person that not only likes it when something doesn’t work so you have to figure out it…you revel in it!
Cutting Edge – You’re all about the latest and greatest. You know the features and benefits inside and out, and are like a kid in a candy store when anything new comes out of the box for the first time.
Calm, Cool, and Collected – You’ve got it – no matter what “it” is! Your ability to keep your client service and communication skills polished when challenging situations arise will be key to ensuring ongoing client satisfaction.
Below is a list of the day-to-day areas of responsibility. You won’t be responsible for all of them right from the outset – you’ll be working with other members of our team and your responsibility will increase over time.
Supporting Service Teams – You’ll be the go-to person for the tough stuff that our service teams can’t figure out – you’ll collaborate with co-workers on tickets when they need assistance or you’ll take over the work if needed.
Technical Procedures and Documentation – The escalation team will be responsible for creating the top-notch procedures and documentation necessary to keep our service teams rocking and rolling.
Evaluating New Technical Products and Solutions – You’ll get to research all sorts of new stuff and work with our IT Director to make decisions about products to use in our client environments.
Training and Certification – As new technologies emerge, we want to be on the cutting edge and help our team do the same. We’ll make sure you stay current on the platforms needed to service our clients.

Helpful – Always willing to assist others in a positive manner. This is a back-end support position in nature, so we need someone who’s willing to help others and be flexible to change the order of their tasks based on constantly changing priorities.
