Up Your IT Career Game

Senior Field Engineer

Full-time, Ellicott City MD

What You'll Do

As a Senior Field Engineer at XPERTECHS, you’ll spend your days traveling from client site to client site setting up new computer hardware, software, and telecommunications equipment. You’ll plan your day according to what’s on the project deployment schedule and the logistics needed to get to each location. While you’re onsite you may also assist with support requests and emergencies, acting as the eyes and hands for support engineers who are working the issue. You’ll become the face of XPERTECHS as you interact with the point-of-contact and individual computer users at client companies who will get to know you on a first-name basis.

Who You'll Work With

You’ll work closely with the Project Team to deploy hardware associated with technology improvement projects that could be anything from installing laptops or firewalls, to switching out phone hardware.

You’ll communicate regularly with the folks in Procurement and the build Workshop, who will be receiving, imaging, and configuring equipment before installation. 

You’ll have lots of interaction with clients while you’re onsite and you’ll get to know their IT systems as you create and maintain documentation about their environments. Occasionally, you’ll hear about needs that you can pass on to the Sales Team. 

From time to time, you’ll get requests for support while you’re onsite that you can either take care of yourself or facilitate a handoff to the Support Team. You’ll also collaborate with Support and Engineering if you notice something that needs attention, or they need hands on an issue or task.

It feels good knowing that the people you met that day were glad to see you and appreciated what you and the XPERTECHS team do to make their lives easier.

Who's a Great Fit for This Role

You might be a good fit for this Senior Field Engineer position if you’re good with technology but you don’t want to be tied to a desk all day.

You have a knack for knowing the right thing to say and people like to be around you.
