This job has some remote support components, but many of the calls will be forward facing. So, an ability to "present well" to others is a must.

This is a great opportunity for anyone who is looking for a job that is not just behind a desk, provides hands-on experience with a wide variety of equipment, and wants to visit all areas of the greater Bay Area. We are a small, but mighty team of IT warriors.

This job is based out of San Francisco, but there would be travel from San Jose to Novato to Antioch to Dublin and all points in between.

Salary is dependent upon experience. Local applicants desired; out-of-town applicants are welcome to apply, but there will not be any moving expenses. This will start out as a contact position, with a move to full-time within 6 months of hiring if employment continues.

To be considered for this position, you MUST do the following: Attach your resume and cover letter in PDF format (including recent references who will be contacted, as well as your phone number), provide salary expectations, and include a list of your top three songs (including the artist).
