These days, it seems like everyone wants to work in the tech field. We understand that not every candidate has the experience and education today to get a start in the fast-paced world of technology.

Are you looking for a career in technology but lack the experience and education? Whether you have some or no experience in tech and/or lack a formal education in IT, our company may be willing to give you a chance to enter the tech field. If you have a solid work history, good communication skills, intellectual curiosity and the desire to help others, you may be a good fit for our new program.

If you are willing to learn, we are willing to train.

Our company has been in business for more than 40 years and is a highly successful technology provider to the supply chain industry. As a Microsoft-based software developer with a growing business, we are continually looking to add to our technical support team.

To be successful in Tech Support, you must have the following:

  • Effective communication skills: proper grammar, spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, etc.

  • Ability to be calm and patient when interacting with clients: the ability to endure stressful engagement with clients who may be frustrated while resolving their issues effectively
