Service Desk Consultant I

Highpoint Technology Group | Houston, Texas IT Managed Services Houston, TX
  • Expired: 25 days ago. Applications are no longer accepted.

Company Overview

The HighPoint Technology Group provides IT Managed Services, Consulting, and diverse Hybrid Cloud Solutions that enable businesses to shift away from managing technology and allow them to center their focus on a consuming IT services like an agile enterprise. HighPoint is the only Managed Solutions Provider with a Disney inspired customer service culture, delivering custom Experience Level Agreements for each customer, and a customer relationship strategy which delivers a true partner experience.

Managing technology-based business and support requirements requires broad acumen, efficient and automated processes and a deep understanding of business models. Our engineers are taught to understand our customer’s industries and business models first, then apply their technical expertise to develop the appropriate architecture, security and support models based on the client’s goals.

Our business first approach is the first of many building blocks that we utilize to ensure our solutions align with customer needs, and, once implemented, we can efficiently execute our services.

We are first and foremost a service company, enabled by technology… not the other way around.

We believe that service is the core to creating a vibrant, “built-to-last” organization. If what we’ve said isn’t a mission you can get behind, or you are looking for a big paycheck to do more “directing” than “doing” … stop reading. Still with us? You likely believe that there is more to a job than just getting paid, and that the mission really matters. Good. Because we believe that too!
