Job Summary:

The Role:

Point-of-Sale (PoS) applications support is the focus of the role, although VAST supports a variety of systems. The majority of support is provided remotely, but onsite venue engagements throughout the US are common. Given that our events are crucial revenue-earning opportunities-and often occur after conventional business hours-VAST Analysts provide on-call support on a rotating basis, often "saving the day" when IT issues arise during a show.

  • Diagnose device malfunctions including: software, hardware, and peripheral accessories

  • Author end-user guides to improve understanding & usability of the system for operators

  • Test new versions of software frequently and thoroughly

  • Document frequency of issues and escalate systemic problems accordingly

  • Establish processes for completing support tasks with improved accuracy and timeliness

  • Lead on-call helpdesk hotline during peak support times

  • Provide exceptional customer service to users with varying technical aptitude

  • Travel to venues for software implementations and support


  • Minimum 1-year experience supporting Point of Sale systems (preferably Appetize)

  • Exceptional attention to detail for identifying patterns and curating obscure system data

  • Intermediate knowledge of Microsoft Excel, including use of formulas and pivot tables

  • Experience with food and beverage business operations, ideally multi-location enterprises

  • Diligence in troubleshooting complex problems with little information to reach resolution

  • Ability to reprioritize tasks rapidly without missing deadlines in an ever-changing business

  • Identify risk of missing deadlines and collaboratively exchange tasks with teammates

  • Outstanding customer service etiquette through written and verbal communications

  • Positive, driven attitude; focus on opportunity in difficulty-not difficulty in an opportunity

  • Basic familiarity with Accounting practices (can balance finances/inventory, etc.)

  • Degree/Certificate relevant to technology from accredited university will help; not required

  • Willingness to travel up to 30%, possibly more during peak season (March - October)

Application Details:
