Who we’re looking for:
The Montana High Tech Business Alliance is looking for an essential team member who shares our passion for our mission and whose strengths and interests are a good fit for this role. High-tech moves quickly and our staff is small, so the right person for this job can hustle and wear multiple hats. We’re looking for someone who will take initiative. If you don’t know exactly how to do something or run into a roadblock, you jump in and figure it out.
The ideal candidate is conscientious about details and will deliver high-quality work on time. You love to learn and are excited to keep up with an industry that’s always changing. You communicate professionally and believe in great customer service, whether you’re helping a leader in a global software company or a student launching an app in their dorm room.
