Job Description

Well established (founded in 1987) Custom Home Automation, Security, and Audio Video installation company, is seeking a Lead Audio/Video Technician to join our growing team of professionals.  We are looking for a career-oriented technician with a great attitude, excellent technical skills and the desire to learn and grow with our team.  We need lead techs who are proficient masters of custom home theaters, digital surveillance equipment, lighting controls, smart home technology, shading and all things low voltage.
We're looking for someone who can take design ideas from a sales team and turn them into reality. You'll need to be able to read and follow construction plans, as well as improvise to meet a client's goals. Data and phone wiring? You should be able to do that stuff in your sleep! Install and configure IP cameras? That's no problem, right? What if someone wants their refrigerator to flash a message on the TV in the basement when they're out of beer? We know you can make that happen! We will be assuming that you're comfortable in construction environments and know how to swing a hammer or sling a drill without taking out power to a city block, and that you're not afraid of attics and crawlspaces, because you wouldn't be in this line of work if you were, would you? 

You'll note that this position is for a LEAD tech; that means not only will you have to know what you're doing, but you'll have to be able to organize other team members to work with you to accomplish objectives. We're looking for someone with a proven track record of effective leadership who takes pride in their craft and is accountable for successful outcomes.
