Cantey Tech Consulting helps our clients with IT so they can focus on running their business, law firm, or medical practice. We also do a lot of work with school districts.
Big picture- We do all sorts of things from designing networks to providing ongoing maintenance; we are the company that our clients call for everything from basic pc support to hosted solutions to security to network management. Some clients want to push the envelope with new technologies and some want to keep costs to a minimum.
In this role, we are onsite approximately 80% of the time and provide remote support from home 20% of the time. We typically work around 45 hours per week although sometimes we work longer and later. (In IT support, things can go crazy and we have to work late sometimes.) Our office support hours are 8 AM until 6 PM. I would be lying if I said those were cushy hours playing World of Warcraft while listening to clients talk about email problems on the phone. That's not our day- we are busting it to help our clients and move on to the next problem. We are on call after hours about one week every four months. On-call is no fun but on-call comes with the job.
We are looking for great people who are excited about technology and enjoy dealing directly with clients. We're fanatics about client service, we run a responsive and professional operation, and we love what we do. (OK, we don't love it every day but most days we do.) We're not looking for people who can't handle IT issues independently or who hate working with other humans. We are looking to build our team with people who want to learn about the latest technology and want to contribute to our team. Every day is different over here and you have learn quickly and go with it. Now for the boring requirements . . .
