Neetek Systems Integration, Inc. Solutions Consultant - Systems Administrator San Francisco, CA · Full time

This is a customer facing role, i.e. the Solutions Consultant is the point of contact for our client’s account with us. Must have a well-documented and well-rounded background starting with Help Desk and/or Desktop Support and moving up to Systems Administration, but must be able and willing to perform all aspects of IT including Desktop Support.

Description

Members of the Solutions Consultant team are systems administrators and engineers who work closely with each other in delivering IT projects and support to our various clients. Each team member is assigned a few specific clients for which they are the single point of contact for Neetek and is the primary person delivering the work for that client, but other team members can and are engaged regularly for various scenarios such as technical escalation, backup support, larger projects, etc.


Members of the Solutions Consultant team generally work onsite at client office locations in the Bay Area, but occasionally perform remote work for clients while sitting at our headquarters office in San Francisco. Most work is scheduled in advance, but occasionally there are urgent issues that arise that will require either remote assistance or taking an unscheduled trip to a client office location.


Technical environments and sizes at client office locations vary, but most are between 100 to 1,000 users, generally running either MacOS w/G Suite, or PC's with Windows 10/Active Directory w/Office 365 in hybrid mode. Most clients are cloud-first / wireless-first using SSO with Okta, OneLogin, or Azure AD. Most clients also run MDM with Intune, WorkspaceOne, or JAMF. Some clients have on-premises server/storage infrastructures such as AD/Exchange and SQL on VMWare or Hyper-V.


Our scope varies from client to client. Some of our clients don’t have any internal IT staff and rely on us for anything and everything IT related, and some of our clients already have internal IT staff and choose to rely on us just for a specific scope. Either way, our scope also changes over time with any particular client for various reasons, mainly related to client’s staff changes, growth, or right-sizing which all drive change in IT needs.


For some clients we only deliver projects that they don’t have the time or the expertise to handle internally. Other clients rely on us to manage a specific scope in their overall IT environment, for example some of our clients manage their own infrastructure and systems and use us for Help Desk and Desktop Support, while other clients do it the other way around, where they manage their own Help Desk and Desktop Support and we manage their infrastructure and systems.


Key responsibilities

This is a customer facing role, i.e. the Solutions Consultant is the point of contact for our client’s account with us. That said, while this is a technical position, communication and interpersonal skills are the most important requirement and responsibility.

Delivery mechanism of projects and tasks vary from client to client, but are generally via the use of tools such as Asana, Basecamp, JIRA, ZenDesk, ConnectWise, etc. Client requests for assistance and projects can also be made via email or phone communication as well. Documentation of tasks and projects as well as client communication is also a very important part of our daily work, everything from logging tickets to diagramming technical environments.
