As a Techie, not only will you be joining the Orchard family, you will also be entering the lives of every customer you come across. Often, you will be their safety net and shining light while you teach them how technology could augment their abilities and enhance their lives. If we have to get more cheesy about this, we think of Orchard as the powerhouse that charges and fuels our Techies, so you could go out and bring happiness to the lives that you touch.
Work when you want. You will travel to homes and help customers during the hours you choose.
We will help you master the skills of teaching and problem solving something that will take you far in any career.
You won't change the world, but you will change the customer's lives.
We obsess over communicating effectively and efficiently, such as explaining complex technical concepts using simple terms.
Combining technical and soft skills to change peoples' lives? We think you will have plenty of stories to ace those future interviews.
Our customers come from all kinds of backgrounds. You'll learn from them as much as they'll learn from you.
As a part time role, our Techies average about 10 hours a week. This is just an estimate that may change based on the market and the amount of calls we receive from customers each week.
For every completed appointment, the Techie receives a flat fee of $7.50 to cover the cost of travel.
Most customers request assistance with their computers, however many also have tablets and smartphones. We cover all devices from smart speakers, TVs, WiFi, etc. We do our best to match the devices that you are most confident in the customers that need assistance with those devices.
