Company Description

Tech Guardian is a Managed Service Provider (MSP) that has been in business for over 19 years. We are an award-winning IT company rated in the top 5% in USA, with expertise across all IT environments. Our office is located in Lake Elsinore and we serve small and medium businesses throughout the Inland Empire. Tech Guardian provides something different than what is traditionally done in the IT space. We provide proactive IT services, not break/fix, so our techs are responsible for engineering system solutions to protect customers from downtime. Our business is steadily growing, and we need engineers and technicians with a strong desire to grow with our company and be a team player. Tech Guardian values its employees and invests in their long-term growth. We expect our technicians to advance and grow in the company by certifying in a range of products and we compensate with pay raises with each certification. We provide paid technical training each week, and we reimburse the cost of each passed certification. Every team member becomes a part of the Tech Guardian family, and we frequently have team activities to maintain strong working relationships. Our employees work for Tech Guardian because they enjoy the atmosphere, the camaraderie and the challenge of solving new problems each day.
