Technical Assistant

A Technical Assistant provides technical support and assistance to a team or organization. The specific tasks and responsibilities of a Technical Assistant may vary depending on the industry or company they work for, but they typically involve providing support for technical processes and equipment, troubleshooting technical problems, and assisting with technical projects.

  • In some industries, a Technical Assistant may be responsible for maintaining and updating technical documentation,
  • providing training to other employees on technical procedures or equipment, and
  • coordinating with other departments or teams to ensure that technical projects are completed on time and within budget.


Technical Assistant jobs are typical entry level jobs for Bachelors, graduates of specific High Schools or similar. If you are a PhD or Masters graduate from a university, there is a high probability that you will not get the job because you would be overqualified. “Overqualified” isn’t always a polite description of “we’re not confident in your abilities,” but rather the recruiter assumes that you would be under-challenged and bored in this position. A premature termination at your request would probably be the result of the employment.

For a Technical Assistant position you should have a background in a technical field, such as engineering or computer science, as well as experience with the specific technical processes or equipment used by the company. Strong problem-solving skills and the ability to work well in a team environment are also important.

With view on career opportunities, there are many career paths that a Technical Assistant can take. They can be promoted to lead or senior roles within the team they are working with, or switch to related roles like software engineer, quality manager, technical consultant, system analyst, etc.
