    Biking more in NV and a job opening

    Looks like I now find myself splitting time between Colorado, Nevada, and California in my new job. I can picture the endless biking opportunities and plan to take advantage of that. Having MTBed in Nevada a few times, I'm ready for a more steady chance. That is, provided I can get some help. Help? This may not be appropriate to post here, and the mods may not like it, but I've found the best employees are ones that appreciate your passions.

    So, for my Henderson / LV based biking brethren, I submit the following job description. PM me if you or someone you know may be interested.

    Senior Support Specialist

This position requires a highly motivated individual comfortable with rapid changes in direction and environment. The successful candidate will be customer oriented, results driven (i.e. metrics oriented), budget conscious, and passionate about building a cost efficient support center environment.
