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.

    • 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)
