We are looking to add a hands-on Technical Consultant to our elite team. This opportunity is special in that it enables you to both gain a significant depth of expertise and simultaneously stay broad and keep your skills really relevant. We get to play with all the latest and greatest technologies too!
You will be consulting with clients and integrating networks, data protection, data storage, and virtualization technologies for a diverse group of corporate end users. We are very interested in hearing from individuals with specific experience with a variety of hypervisors, data protection solutions, networking, and HPC. However, we can train versatile, technically experienced candidates; we have a fully equipped lab environment, and a culture that emphasizes and rewards ongoing professional development and education.
The nature of our work is to deliver that expertise where it is needed throughout the US. This gives our technical staff significant exposure to a wide variety of organizations and technology environments. Thus, the position involves regular, generally short, business week travel outside of the area (on the order of about 25-50%, depending on the individual).
We specifically look for individuals with exceptional communication and/or teaching skills; most of our projects include detailed proposals, written consulting deliverables, group and/or one-on-one technical training, and knowledge transfer.
