What it Means to #Bealighthouse
At Lighthouse Technology Services, our IT Professionals are beacons of light for our clients searching for IT guidance, people, resources and support.
We developed the #Bealighthouse motto as a call to action for IT professionals everywhere who may be searching for something more in their professional lives. It is the hashtag our IT Job postings can be found under on Twitter and Facebook, and the metaphor that motivates our daily work.
Below are some more details about what it means to work with us.
We pride ourselves on offering a superb benefits plan coupled with competitive salaries. We pay the majority of the standard premiums for our employees, which include:
- Health insurance
- Vision insurance
- Dental insurance
- 401(k) plan
- Direct deposit
- Overtime compensation
Our IT Professionals
We maintain a small internal team of IT Recruiting Professionals, client account directors, and HR and bookkeeping professionals, which affords us the opportunity to build real relationships with the IT Professionals we recruit, place, and serve.
Our client facing IT Professionals tend to work either on-site at our client’s office location(s) or remotely, if appropriate to the client’s job requirement.
We work in both W2 and Corp to Corp environments depending on the client, the IT Professional, and the applicable regulatory parameters, and we do have the ability to sponsor H-1B visas in certain, specific instances.
Currently, the majority of our IT Jobs are tied to Buffalo, NY rooted IT Professional Positions – meaning the position is either based in Buffalo, NY, the manager of the position is located in or has ties to Buffalo, NY, or the company is headquartered in Buffalo, NY – though some of the open IT Requirements may be for positions in locations across the country.
When the Next Career Step Nears
We effort to maintain contact with even our most remote-working IT Professionals over the course of their contracts, and work with them to find the next step when a project nears its completion or when a new career challenge is calling.
Many times our clients are so pleased with the quality of work and the character of the IT Professionals we’ve helped place that they move to offer our people permanent positions within their company. If this next step is the right fit for our people, and even though we don’t receive any financial compensation in such an agreement, we consider it a success story.
But beyond all of this, we’re a family-based business. Our people are our lifeline, and we work hard to build relationships and connections that last long term. We look to treat people how we would like to be treated, and while there are aspects of our client’s activities that are out of our control, we believe we can always control our effort and compassion for our people.
