Desktop Support Technician

Carnegie Robotics builds custom robotics systems for government and industry. We also manufacture and sell rugged robotics components that allow other organizations to develop their own robots. We’re small enough to have many of the benefits of working for a startup, but we have a very broad customer base, making us more stable and recession-proof than most organizations our size. We are developing and deploying cutting edge technology in robotics, perception, and machine learning. Many of our development efforts go on to have a real-world impact in robots that clean floors, find land mines, enable the development efforts of other organizations, and much more. This is challenging, exciting work, and we are committed to building the company culture and diverse team that will allow our continued success.

We are looking for a competent Desktop Support Technician I or II to provide fast and useful technical assistance to our end users and hardware. You will answer questions on basic technical issue, as well as solve them.

Provide support of all computers and related I.T. equipment and ensure that employees have the appropriate tools to perform their job function.  In addition, you will maintain these tools, and where necessary, repair with minimal user disruption. This is a hands-on position, and you will be interacting with employees face to face.
