Technical Support Associate - BC Lower Mainland

Technical Support Surrey, BC


Description

The Technical Support Associate position is ideal for candidates with 1-2 years experience  supporting all levels of Information Technology. This position supports a mix of desktops, laptops, servers, printing, networking, firewalls, and related equipment. This position is geared towards providing opportunity for  an intermediate level  IT professional that is looking for a company to work for that will listen to them, help them grow further in their careers by supporting them with training and certifications. Whilst hard work and some long hours (not every day) are part of being an IT Professional, it is also important to have work-life balance, and that is what this position is about.

This specific posting is aimed at finding a Tech ROCKSTAR, based in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley of British Columbia. We are looking for someone that can represent the best of Superion while physically in front of customers from North Vancouver to Chilliwack. As such we are looking for someone with a clean (and valid) driver’s license, and a reliable vehicle. When not onsite, you would be from our main office in Cloverdale BC. Communications, presentation, and confidence are key to earning our clients’ trust, so you must excel in these traits.

We are looking for a generalist, and willing to train on the specific brands and technologies that we deploy, but you need to have a passion for supporting clients and have a work ethic that sets you apart from the pack. If you look at a computer setup and see a rat’s nest of cables and have a feeling that comes over you that you NEED to do something about that, then this position is right for you. Anyone can setup a computer onsite, but only a few will do it well.
