Job Description

Help Desk Technician

We are not your typical financial services firm. For starters, we're a fast-growing company with 30 percent of our employee head count in technology. We've been recognized as a Best Place to Work 38 times (and counting), and Computerworld has ranked us highly nationwide for the past 11 years as one of the best places to work in IT-and for good reason. We think and have fun like a start-up (mini-golf tournaments, outdoor movie nights, summer outings, holiday bashes, etc.) yet have the financial stability to offer you the best training and technology money can buy. Conveniently located in the heart of downtown San Diego at the intersection of First and A streets, our office is a short walk to the COASTER, a few blocks from the entrance to both the 5 and the 163, and close to the 94.
