About Us 

Just-Tech is a growing technology firm with a wealth of experience providing IT strategy, system design, project implementation, training as well as ongoing management, and engineering and support services to legal aid, public interest and public defender organizations. Just-Tech is headquartered in New York with team members and clients located across the United States. Just-Tech’s client organizations are leading the way in helping low-income individuals and families realize the promise of equal justice under the law by providing free, accessible, cutting edge legal services and legal assistance, by collaborating through statewide and national technology initiatives that magnify the numbers of persons served, and by inspiring lawyers in both corporate and private practices to donate tens of thousands of hours of their time every year in service to their communities and their nation.

The Opportunity

Just-Tech is seeking a full-time Senior Network and Systems Engineer to be a part of its progressive and innovative team. The Senior Engineer will work out of our offices in New York and spend most of their time working directly with Just-Tech’s clients, their staff, and their volunteers to help ensure that their systems and applications are fully operational and that clients have the support they need to properly use their technology. The Senior Engineer will be responsible for resolving issues other Engineers and Support level personnel are unable to resolve on their own. Periodic work will be done at client offices in New York and across the nation and some overnight travel will be required.

Just-Tech and its clients are primarily Microsoft shops with some Apple, Linux, and Solaris-based systems. Most of our clients use VoIP telephone solutions that are either premise or cloud-based. We support users who increasingly work outside of their offices and use laptops, tablets, smartphones, and MiFi devices that Just-Tech maintains and supports.

The successful candidate will be motivated, resourceful, creative, detail-oriented, maintain grace under pressure, and welcome the opportunity to learn unfamiliar technologies. She/he must enjoy working as a member of a larger team but also have the skills, experience and confidence to work independently. Just-Tech is eager to hire individuals who have demonstrated commitment to serving their community, who want to put their technical mindset to use in the service of social justice and who are willing to grow their knowledge in assigned areas of responsibility.
