Some of these sites are in remote locations requiring significant flying and driving. Candidate must be available to travel anywhere in the U.S. and Canada for up to 5 days at a time, and occasionally longer internationally. Working conditions at customer sites are frequently challenging: loud, dirty, and not climate controlled. This is a high-visibility position with plenty of opportunities for technical and professional growth.
The ideal candidate is a strong technical generalist with knowledge of IT hardware, software, data, networking, and RFID. A healthy curiosity about how things work is necessary, as the ideal candidate will frequently need to troubleshoot components, perform research to resolve issues, and manage their own learning about CribMaster products. The ability to write effectively is an important part of the position, as the ideal candidate will communicate frequently via email, and write technical documents related to projects and processes. Above-average skill with MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Visio required. Effective speaking skills are essential as this position requires frequent communication over the phone and face-to-face. This is a customer-facing position and the ideal candidate is someone who will represent CribMaster well during on-site implementations by being well-organized, technically competent, and working effectively as part of a technical team. Knowledge of tools and industrial processes is very helpful.
