  • The ability to complete tasks in a well-planned, thorough, and security-minded manner (keeping systems available = staying on the air = happy listeners!)

  • 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

  • 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.
