  • Conduct pre-installation discussions and follow-ups with contractors for project success.

  • Travel across MD, DC, and VA for on-site hardware installation and equipment testing.

  • Provide technical training to contractors and end-users on system use and maintenance.

What Makes You Great For This Role

  • You like helping people out!  Whether it’s an internal or external customer, you take pride in the relationship you’ve cultivated and meeting their needs.

  • You pay attention to the details…all of them.  No dot-less i’s or cross-less t’s get past you.

  • You use language skills like a multitool; absorbing and dispersing information, articulating thoughts, and exchanging ideas through both written and verbal forms.  You listen actively, write concisely, and speak clearly.

  • You enjoy solving problems.  You love taking on difficult challenges and creating solutions. And if you don’t know the answer, you’ll dig until you find one.

  • Your wheels are always turning.  You enjoy collecting information and evaluating it from different angles to identify trends and draw a conclusion.

  • You continuously prioritize and consciously control the amount of time spent on specific tasks.

  • You use an intellectual arsenal of logical, business-minded thinking to determine next steps, actions, and plans.

  • You tend to have a competitive drive, never losing sight of the end game and always have a target you’re trying to achieve.  You may be prone to maintaining a to-do list and absolutely love to check off completed tasks.

  • You are patient, level-headed, and cool under pressure.  When things change, it’s no biggie.  You just roll with the punches and reprioritize.

  • You are honest with yourself and receive feedback to know what areas you wish to improve.  You enjoy pushing yourself to learn something new, whether in a structured, formal setting or exposure in day-to-day activities.  You never miss a chance to grow.


Where & How You'll Work


As a member of our Field Service team, you can expect to spend most of your time on-site at client locations.  This means you may be on the road, at early or late hours, traveling to and from your destination in the MD, DC, or VA area.  Most work will be performed during normal contractor hours from 5:00 am to 3:00 pm.  However, depending on the nature of the project, it may be necessary to work some evenings and/or nights.  For some further out-of-town projects or training seminars, you’ll get to experience hotel accommodations with occasional overnight stays.  Your position will also involve a combination of days spent working mostly in the Baltimore office and more occasionally in the Richmond office or remotely from home.
