This specialist will be onsite in our NYC office 80% of the time, with the ability to remotely support global regions and offices.
What You'll Do:

  • Work both individually and collaboratively on our day-to-day support operations, in order to provide excellent service to our employees. This includes answering ticket cases, chats, calls, and video conferences to provide:

    • Computer support - providing hands-on and remote user assistance, by installing, configuring, and maintaining IT related computers and equipment. Utilize and manage MDM systems.
    • Network support - providing assistance and hands-on support to local networking equipment
    • Application support - ensuring client applications stay up and running, and offer technical support (directly or in front of the global support teams) when they don't

      Who You Are:

      • Patient and happy to help - customer service is at your core.
      • A curious tinkerer, but mindful of risk and IT security - you live to solve large and complex problems, but you don't mind fixing somebody's laptop.

        • Troubleshooting Mac, Windows, Android, and iOS operating systems.

        • You have 2-3 years experience in a similar IT role

          What Catches Our Eye:

          • Experience supporting 1000+ employees and managing enterprise-level tools and technologies.
          • You see yourself as an emerging leader in the IT space, even if you haven't worked at this scale before.
          • Experience with AWS and JAMF is a plus.
