What does a Technology Associate do?

Technology associates perform a broad range of basic IT duties related to the installation, setup, and maintenance of computer hardware equipment and software programs. They handle the initial assembly and activation of hardware, install and configure software programs and applications, and assist with integration of systems. They also provide daily tech support and assistance with routine maintenance and troubleshooting. They advise on technical privacy and security issues and safeguards. They may specialize in certain IT products, platforms, or tasks.

Technology associates typically have a bachelor’s degree in a computer science field, although an equivalent combination of education and relevant professional experience may be acceptable. They commonly have a background in tech support, and should have hands-on experience installing and maintaining a variety of IT systems. Programming experience is an asset.
