Network Engineer

Block Ransomware, LLC - Los Angeles, CA (30+ days ago)

Cyber security and the fight against ransomware is quickly becoming one of the most pressing business issues today. Block Ransomware was established by President & CEO Asher Dahan specifically to stop hackers dead in their tracks. Block Ransomware™ is an innovative, patent-pending solution that prevents hackers from taking over corporate data by detecting and then stopping the encryption of files when it begins.

Operating from its computer lab in West Los Angeles, Block Ransomware is a dynamic company that is growing fast and adding many new clients. To support this growth, we are seeking an experienced, responsible, energetic, resourceful, and flexible person to join our team as a Senior Microsoft Engineer and support our CEO’s ongoing efforts to build a phenomenal business.

In this role, you will report directly to the CEO and serve not only as his right hand but also as the backbone of the company’s technical operations. This is a hands-on role and will require direct client-facing activity, ranging from handling first-level user support calls to managing any number of network projects for small businesses of approximately 10 to 100 employees. Given the nature of Block Ransomware’s innovative solutions, the ideal candidate will also have significant knowledge of and experience with Cyber Security. To be successful, this Engineer must be a self-starter who thrives in a fast-paced environment, is skilled at working autonomously to provide both on-site and remote technical support, and will do whatever it takes to deliver the expected results.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone who has been supporting his/her own clients before and is excited about joining a fast-growing IT company. If you have that personal drive to succeed and want to roll up your sleeves and contribute to just about everything that goes on within an entrepreneurial IT workplace, this could be a great fit! We are already in the process of considering qualified candidates, so if you’re interested please send a copy of your complete resume as well as a cover letter highlighting your particular areas of expertise.
