Posted on Friday, February 9, 2024

We’re after amazing people to help us make amazing things happen.

Our mission at Dedicated IT is to help people and organizations be better tomorrow than they are today. We believe in our employees, their goals and aspirations, their morals and culture, even their preferred soda of choice (you should see our break fridge). It is our mission to create a fun and hard-working environment for each one of them. We believe in a good healthy mixture of work and play in our daily activities where our employees feel at home and part of our family. We feel strongly that this gives our customers the best experience when interacting with any of our team members from service to sales.

I get it… Dedicated IT is awesome. But, what’s the position all about…?

We are seeking a person to add to our rockstar service desk team. Your team is responsible for answering inbound calls from clients spread across nearly all 50 states. While primarily focused on “quick hit” tickets, you must have a strong technical background. Your number one priority is to provide excellent customer service to our cherished clients. People don’t call our service desk because they are having a great day; they’re calling because a key piece of technology isn’t working for them, and it’s frustrating. Your job is to keep them happy AND fix their technology problem at the same time.

How do I know if I’m a good fit for this job?

It’s pretty simple, really. Be nice. Be friendly. Be smart. Don’t stop until it’s fixed.

  • You must have a bright, bubbly personality that will help defuse the situation.
  • You need great listening skills so that you can get a clear reading of the root of the problem (we don’t like fixing symptoms here).
  • You must enjoy handling a high volume of phone calls with clients.
  • You need excellent documentation skills so that you can create a case in our ticketing system.
  • You need excellent verbal & written communication skills.
  • You have fantastic interpersonal skills including communication, empathy & patience, quick problem solving, organization, critical thinking, self-awareness, humility, motivation, diligence, charisma, driven, and have excellent time management.
  • You need a solid foundation of technology skills – this means you probably have at least two to three years in the IT industry already.
  • You have worked at an MSP for at least 1 year.
  • You have exceptional customer service skills and have some experience in a computer retail store.
  • You need to be a sponge. Success depends on your ability to soak up knowledge as you are moving from client to client and technology to technology.
  • Your Google skills are on point. It’s not always about what you know, but how quick you are at finding a solution when you don’t know. However, you need to know when to throw in the towel, and ask for help from the Advanced Support / Escalations team.
  • You have the ability to work well under pressure – be quick on feet to do well in our fast-paced atmosphere with a high sense of urgency.
  • You have a positive attitude and are supportive and respectful to your co-workers.
  • You live within 30 miles of our headquarters in Lake Park, FL and can reliably commute to this location.
  • Share the same core values as Dedicated IT – 1) Attack challenge with action and innovation 2) Deliver results and are obsessed with excellence 3) Value partnership over profit 4) Have fun and let your hair down (we work hard but have fun doing it!).
