IT Engineer at Airship
Portland, OR, US

About You

When you see someone struggling with their computer, do you just have to help them? You learned a new operating system just because you were curious? You compared Google Worksheets to Microsoft Excel because you wanted to know the difference for yourself? You like explaining technical concepts to people who don’t have the tech vocabulary? When you see a task that needs doing, you do it? You work with computers, but you know that you are actually helping people?

 

About this role 

Airship Information Technology team supports choice in our computing environment. We look for innovative solutions to problems from enterprise class solutions to open source solutions and everything in between. We know that if we provide the best solutions for our end users, we are contributing to the success of the company. 

You will work with computer hardware, software, A/V systems, Telephony, Video Conferencing, and network systems. All of those things have one purpose: Supporting the people that make up Airship. We need you to be endlessly curious and to think from the perspective of your customer. What would make their work easier? Does this software have a user interface that makes sense?

You will work to develop, test, install, configure, troubleshoot and provide ongoing support for technical solutions. As part of this process, you develop the documentation, diagrams and other instructions to help our internal customers use the solutions we provide.
