  • Experience working with and supporting PC hardware
  • Experience working with and supporting Windows and Office 365
  • Experience with Microsoft server OSes and Active Directory
  • At least some basic experience in *NIX concepts and operations/administration
  • A working knowledge of basic TCP/IP concepts and commonly-used protocols
  • A basic skill set in routing and switching that is vendor-agnostic
  • Ability to perform basic wiring tasks (ie., can you make a Cat5/Cat6 patch cable?)
  • Ability to lift at least 50 pounds, and to work in a variety of settings (at a desk, at a workbench, on rackmounted equipment, etc)
  • Ability, both legally and physically, to drive a car, van, or other passenger vehicle for short trips between work sites.

The candidate must have a minimum of 3 years of IT-related experience or a minimum of a 2-year degree.
