    Job Description


    Mainstay Technologies is a mission-driven, fast growing company that provides IT and Information Security services to organizations throughout New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts. We care deeply about our clients and about our company—our culture is one of our strongest assets.  We believe in “conscious capitalism”a business model that balances all stakeholders and seeks to provide ever-increasing value to our clients, team members, community, vendors, and the environment.  Our mission is to always give more than we get by creating value and having a positive impact at every turn. 

    We are in an exciting and evolving industry with significant opportunities ahead. We love what we do, and we are growing! In New Hampshire, we’ve been recognized as one of the Best Companies to Work For and Coolest Companies for Young Professionals. Demonstrating the excellence of our team, Mainstay has also won “Best of Business” for Managed IT Services, the Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics, and we’ve made the Inc. 5000 List for fastest growing companies several times. 

    Our clients typically have a staff of 15-300 happy professionals and look to us for technology and security leadership, guidance, and service delivery. We provide the service of a full IT department and a full Information Security/Compliance department.


    Mainstay Technologies seeks the experienced IT professional who loves delighting people and tackling complex problems. You’re passionate about helping others, skilled at troubleshooting with ease, thrive when problem solving, and committed to growth.  A goal-oriented, fast-paced environment is your ideal setting, and you bring a solid technical foundation with a curiosity for technology.
