What does your
We help companies manage their business as opposed to their network by offering comprehensive managed services. We provide everything from onsite network support and remote help desk support to application development and service hosting. We build the applications and host them. We supplement a company's internal IT department by providing a round-the-clock service level, and we also provide facilities in the mid-market space that they couldn't afford on their own. The two themes of technology we have running through all those offerings are Microsoft and Cisco.
What do you think your employees would say are the best reasons for working at your company?
The opportunity for growth. We've been growing steadily since before the dot-com boom, and we didn't have to reduce head count at all during the bust. People have an opportunity to grow into management here.
Who owns your company?
David Eisner, president and chief executive; Scott Gordon, vice president of technical services; and myself.
What are the demographics of your company?
Company-wide, we're 13 percent female and 24 percent minority. On the eight-person senior management team, we have one woman and no minorities.
What positions do you have available, and what level of expertise do you want?
We're hiring four Microsoft network engineers. Applicants should be a Microsoft certified professional, and a Microsoft certified engineer certification is preferred. At least two years of experience is required. We're also looking for a software engineer. Applicants should have Microsoft development skills and about three years of experience.
