Description of Job Opening

We are growing! New position available.

Mainstay is looking for the rare professional who is passionate about helping people, enjoys a varied and stimulating job, has a solid technical foundation, possesses great troubleshooting skills, shows attention to detail, and thrives meeting challenges that have clear goals.

The Client Systems Administrator (SA) leads key elements of service delivery for our clients. We provide the service of an entire IT department to multiple clients, and the SA works directly with a handful of clients.  His/her job is to get to know the client, participate in leading technology improvements, oversee proactive measures, implement projects (with other team members), resolve some issues, and exercise a high degree of “ownership” over the clients environment. It is an integral role, working closely with other team members for complete service delivery.

We provide a great deal of training and team support and there are multiple opportunities for growth, training, and aspects of specialization. The experience gained is significant.

One of the most important attributes to have is genuine caring and passion for the success of other people. We don’t just care about industry leading technology, or top-notch service, but we are genuinely passionate about the success of our clients.


Mainstay Technologies is an award winning IT service firm. We provide ongoing IT services to organizations who typically have 20-150 staff and are located in New Hampshire or northern Massachusetts.

We are committed to delivering excellence inside of trusted relationships. We care deeply about our clients and about our company – our culture is one of our strongest assets.  We seek the best in the industry to join us in our passion for providing top-notch IT services.

We believe in a business model that balances all stakeholders and seeks to provide ever-increasing value to our clients, our team members, our owners, our community, our vendors, and our environment.  Our mission is to always give more than we get, by creating value and positively impacting lives at every turn, and we are intentional about how we do this.
