At Spearhead we believe in the delivery of high performance. By this we mean that we are excited to the bone about the delivery of IT services that help people and companies get things done. We are all about high performance and not just in computing but in everything that we do.
We are looking for more people like us: system generalists who love to solve problems. Our ideal colleague is comfortable in any stage of a systems life cycle, whether that is initial set-up and configuration or ongoing maintenance and support, and who finds gratification in knowing that their work keeps some of the most successful businesses running. We’re seeking a Support Engineer to help us deliver professional technical support services for customers, our ISV partners and corporate clients as well as to our global IT monitoring customers.
Implementation experience is helpful but enthusiasm and interest can trump experience; we’re willing to take a chance on someone who wants to step up.
