IT/Desktop Support Specialist

| Greater Boston Area

SimpliSafe is looking for an IT Support Specialist to provide top-notch technical support to our business and employees. Supported by our IT Manager, you’ll help keep our team working smoothly by solving problems of all sizes.

Our ideal candidate possesses…

  • Awesomeness.
  • Excellent analytical and troubleshooting skills.
  • The ability to triage, and to re-prioritize on the fly when things come up.
  • Strong Mac skills: you know your way around the fringe features of a mac, are unafraid to work on the command line, and know multiple ways of solving a problem on a Mac.
  • Fundamental understanding of networking, wifi, and servers: we want to hear about any and all hands-on experience you have here.
  • The ability to maintain an even temperament 100% of the time: you’re cool & able to deliver under pressure, and always leave your users/customers happy.
  • Collaborative, thoughtful, friendly approach to customer service: as an IT engineer, you’re eager to help an end user in need, however difficult (or simple!) the problem might be.
  • Willingness to pitch in, whether it is snaking cables through walls, fixing keyboards, ordering desk lamps, or building redundant email servers in Amazon Web Services (AWS) via Devops tools (i.e. Infrastructure as code - Ansible, Terraform, etc.)
  • Enthusiasm to learn and grow

For extra credit...

  • Recent server configuration/administration experience
  • Significant experience working with 3rd-party vendors/services/carriers

We like to keep things interesting when it comes to outings. Weekend ski trips, F1 racing, and Red Sox games for the less adventurous!

SimpliSafe

Inc.

What projects are you most excited about?

Any of our new projects. We are constantly trying to innovate and enter new markets. For a long time the SimpliCam was my favorite project, I was involved in the development from the ground up. Our new doorbell and locks are exciting new projects that present new sets of technical problems to solve.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've changed roles twice since starting as a call center representative for SimpliSafe in 2013. I became a QA Engineer in 2016, and at the beginning of 2018 moved into my current position as the Product Manager for our flagship security system. SimpliSafe has afforded me many opportunities that I don't think I could have gotten at other companies.
