Company: Greystone Technology
Location: Fort Collins
Posted on: October 13, 2021

Job Description:

Greystone Technology is looking for creative, self-accountable IT professionals to engage in our fast-paced, people-driven service model.  Average IT people tend to be great at solving technical issues, but poor at understanding the true problems that need to be solved.  

We’ve redesigned the way technology services are provided – from the ground up. We don’t start with solutions; we start with questions. Lots of them. Then we listen.  Service providers have a well-earned reputation for sharing the answer before knowing the problem, resulting in businesses getting solutions they don’t need to problems they don’t have. 

If you think differently, solve creatively, and love to connect with people, we want you to join our mission of digging deep and proving how meaningful IT services can be.  It’s as common sense as it is revolutionary. 

We are looking for a Technical Consultant (in other companies your job title could be Network/Systems Engineer, Systems Administrator, Technical Account Manager, or you could be an aspiring IT Manager) to join our Managed IT team. The Technical Consultant holds the ultimate accountability for a dedicated client base’s technology needs and satisfaction.  You will also mentor the engineers on your team in technical and business acumen. You will need to think outside the box to find solutions that fit your client’s needs and expectations. This role will be located in our Fort Collins, CO office. 

Additional responsibilities include the following: 

  • Business strategy and solutions consulting for your clients
  • Acting as an escalation point for your Engineers
  • Build long term relationships with our clients that are based on mutual trust
  • Be accountable for providing and supporting all tiers of service
  • Ticket management and documentation
  • Learning independently about our clients’ ever changing systems
  • Working both in our office and on location with our clients 

Here are the attributes we’re looking for: 

  • 4+ years’ experience in an outsourced technology environment
  • The mentality of a coach and mentor (you like to share your knowledge and expertise)
  • The ability to understand business problems through a technology lens
  • The ability to communicate at all levels in our clients’ organization
  • The ability and desire to work on a dedicated team
  • A focus on thinking critically over relying on technical expertise
  • An empathetic person who has the ability to understand the perspective of our client’s users
  • An ability to ask the right questions to discover the context of general client issues
  • Ability to maintain confidence in the face of ambiguity
  • A positive, courteous demeanor and the ability to communicate professionally under pressure
  • An inherent commitment to serving your client
  • Ability to thrive in an environment of authentic connection, candor, and open feedback
  • The confidence, self-awareness, and integrity to take ownership of your successes and failures and learn from them 

Preferred technical skills include experience with the following: 

  • Microsoft platforms (e.g. Office 365, Active Directory, all current flavors of Windows)
  • Advanced knowledge of networking principles (TCPIP, DNS, DHCP, Lan/Wan, VLAN, Layer 3 Principles)
  • Virtualization (VMWare, Hyper-V)
  • Cloud solutions
  • Firewall/router configuration
  • Security principles (general security concepts)
  • Peripherals (scanners, fax machines, printers, etc.)
  • Troubleshooting standard hardware configurations
  • Malware/virus remediation
  • Basic Apple troubleshooting
  • Learning and supporting various line of business applications
  • Backup and disaster recovery concepts 

We are proud to be recognized as one of the top workplaces in Denver. In fact, it’s Greystone Technology team members themselves who say our company is a great place to work. We’ve created an inviting workspace that fosters a culture of collaboration, inclusion, innovation, and excitement. Some of the things our team members enjoy including:

  • Competitive wages | The salary range is expected to start at $65,000. Our offer will be determined by multiple factors including candidate experience and expertise and may vary from the amount listed above.
  • Generous benefits for you and your family including Health, Dental, Vision, Life, Disability Insurance, HSA & 401(k) employer contributions
  • Maternal and paternal leave
  • Very generous paid time off program that is unique to the IT industry
  • Sustainable work-life balance and flexibility
  • Yearly work anniversary rewards
  • Fun company events, including chili cook-offs, annual company photo shoot, monthly happy hours, cup in hand kickball league, and more!

We’re looking for smart, highly skilled, passionate people to help us do something daring, difficult, and incredibly rewarding. If you are ready to learn, be inspired, solve problems, grow professionally, and unleash your talent. Come as you are and apply today!

How to Apply:

We get a lot of job applications and unfortunately most of them get nothing more than a quick once-over. Please include the usual - a resume and a cover letter, and anything else that will show us that you are interested in and qualified for this specific position. Tell us stories. Show us as much as you can about who you are. Make us panic about the fact that we haven't already hired you. Learn to use Facebook privacy settings or better yet just un-tag yourself in that one picture (you know which one) and then become a fan of our page. Tell us your salary requirements and what kind of cookies we should bake for you on your birthday. 

Afraid you’re missing a technological requirement?  Apply anyhow.  We’re probably okay with teaching you some stuff if you’re as obsessive about customer service as we are.

Greystone Technology is committed to creating an inclusive environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Greystone recruits, employs, trains, compensates, and promotes regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, veteran or disability status.
