Boomtown, a San Francisco area-based tech-support company, has expanded to Scottsdale, bringing jobs in its wake.

The company, which provides on-demand device installation and tech support to small businesses, was founded in February of 2014 and offers services through both a mobile app and on-site technicians.

Boomtown’s new offices are located at 8700 E. Vista Bonita Drive in north Scottsdale and serve as both an operational and managerial center for the company.

Paul Wyer, head of operations at Boomtown and the person heading up its Scottsdale office, said the new location is fully operational, but the company is still looking for ways to expand its capabilities.

“We’re going to have growth in the support engineers, project management and training specialist positions,” Wyer said. “We’re booked to have two to three hires in the next 30 to 45 days.”

Boomtown’s support engineers offer remote support to customers via the company’s mobile app, while project management employees perform tasks such as installing tech in new stores. Training specialists train customers on point of sale services like Square.

Wyer called Scottsdale an “ideal” location for expansion because of its tech culture and proximity to Arizona State University.

“There’s a really good technology vibe happening here in the Valley and with ASU being one of the targeted large universities in the United States that are producing highly qualified candidates, we just feel like it’s a good fit for us to be here,” he said.

Those interested in possibly working for Boomtown should visit the company’s website, which consistently lists open positions, Wyer said.
