Career Opportunities - Systems Engineer

Who We Are Looking For

We're looking for systems engineers with a great balance of people, communication, & technical skills who our customers and internal teams would enjoy working with over the phone/Webex, email/instant messaging, or in person. You self-start and can succeed without needing a lot of direction, but also appreciate that being part of team means knowing when to ask for instruction or help (as well as providing it others when you can). You like to break things and be part of the solution. You take it upon yourself to learn and understand how things work as opposed to just memorizing and regurgitating words. You truly enjoy helping others, even when it may be outside the scope of what you initially expected.
