The Basics

Tech Support 101

What are these developers all about?

As the internet grew and dependence on digital systems increased, the demand for our systems to operate incessantly, 24 hours a day, seven days a week also increased.

Tech support specialists possess a toolbox of technical skills and knowledge that comes in handy when problems arise with connectivity, software, or any number of other issues.

It’s worth noticing that there are different levels of tech support specialists. An L1 specialist helps customers both understand and resolve software and hardware issues that can be solved by the client itself. They are usually the first point of contact when customers are looking for support. They diagnose, identify issues, and if necessary, delegate such issues to L2 and L3 tech support when more specialized skills and knowledge are required.

Overall responsibilities of the role

As with any role, the responsibilities will depend on the hiring company’s tech roadmap. Their daily tasks and responsibilities have a wide scope, so day-to-day tasks and responsibilities are tailored to your specific company needs.

Some tasks include:

  • Installing new technology and networks
  • Configuring new technology, programs, and software
  • Providing regular maintenance to existing hardware and software.
  • Troubleshooting systems and applications
  • Providing assistance to other company employees or customers
  • Replacing malfunctioning or damaged parts or hardware.
