Why Livewire?

Why Livewire

There are plenty of reasons to pursue a career in technology. It means working in one of the fastest-growing and rapidly-changing sectors on the market. It’s also a field that rewards innovation, creativity, and attention to detail. But as with any industry, some companies are a pleasure to work for while others might leave you wanting. At Livewire, we firmly believe our organization falls in the former camp – and here are seven reasons why!

Competitive Pay

Starting pay for our technicians varies by experience, and we’re highly competitive when it comes to those who are new to the industry. Ultimately, our pay rates really depend on where your technical skills lie. Our technicians can master new skills to earn raises, so they have a lot of control over how much they make. Plus, there are opportunities to earn additional income through referrals and bonuses related to company performance. Ultimately – the ball is in your court!

Retirement & Benefits

Not all companies offer retirement and health benefits to their employees – hourly or otherwise. At Livewire, all full-time employees are eligible for health, dental, and vision benefits! Plus, you have the option to contribute to a Simple IRA retirement plan that Livewire will match up to 2%! All employees also enjoy employee discounts on products from our vendors, two weeks’ worth of vacation time, and company outings throughout the year – which aren’t too shabby either.

Employee Investment

Technology is constantly evolving, so we make sure our team members stay on top of the shifting landscape. All new hires go through an extensive training process before entering the field, and you’ll have the opportunity to learn from our master technicians. Plus, our team holds monthly training sessions to further hone technical skills and product knowledge. We invest a lot into our employees and make sure they’re never without a safety net.

Livewire employees are also given the opportunity to follow their passions. We’ve had technicians transition to our sales team, project management, operations, and more!

Why LIvewire

Unique Industry

The technology integration industry is incredibly unique. You will get a chance to work on various projects with different roles to play in each. And because we take on all kinds of projects throughout Central Virginia, you’ll never have the same day twice. You could be programming a country club security system one day, and installing a home theater the next!  This industry will introduce you to things you never thought possible and you’ll pick up a ton of new skills along the way. At the end of the day, what we do is just really, really cool.

Job Security

While no job is 100% immune to an economic downturn, the technology industry continues to expand. In fact, integrators are in need of new and diverse professionals now more than ever. As more and more careers allow remote work and the line between work/life balance blurs, we’ve only seen demand rise. Not to mention our industry was classified as essential during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Flexible Schedule

Livewire offers flexible weekday schedules, and we’re always closed on weekends. Some crews work a 4/10 schedule from Monday to Thursday or Tuesday to Friday and enjoy three-day weekends. Others spread it out over a 5-day work week! We work with our team members to set a schedule that works for them, and overnight travel is seldom required. Certainly beats the heck out of the traditional 9-to-5!

In our industry, mandatory overtime is (unfortunately) normal and can often lead to burnout. That isn’t the case at Livewire. Sure, there’s plenty of work to go around so the opportunity to pick up extra shifts is available to the go-getters. However, unlike many of our competitors, you won’t be racking up 50-hour work weeks on a regular basis.

The Livewire Family

Livewire really does feel like a family. Joining the team means working with some of the most talented, hardworking, and passionate people you’ll ever meet. We all have one another’s backs, and you don’t have to look far if you’re ever in need of support or a helping hand. That goes for our customers as well! Our clients are so appreciative of the work we do, it’s no wonder most of our business comes through referrals or repeat customers.

For these reasons (and many more), Livewire might just be the perfect place to start your new career. If you want to browse our list of openings, click the link below and take the first step on your journey with us!
