GatorTec’s Core Values

Go Above and Beyond

We strive to go above and beyond to show our customers that they are our first priority.  We’re all about finding the right solution for customers rather than the most expensive one.

Everyone is Welcome

We know that walking into an Apple or computer store can be intimidating.  We train our team to be open and to make people of all skill-levels feel welcomed.  There are no stupid questions at GatorTec.

A Brand You Can Trust

GatorTec is an organization built on trust.  We think it’s important to form lasting relationships with customers.  The electronics market can be a dangerous and confusing place and GatorTec is here to give customers a safe, trustworthy option for all things Apple.

Open Positions

We try to make our environment fun and challenging, because we are proud of what we do. Everyone on our team enjoys working with people they love, playing with the gadgets they love, and serving the community they love.

GatorTec began in 2001, and was originally known as SS Technologies. It was founded by Jim Dufek, a native Floridian who’s lived in Gainesville for almost 20 years. Recognizing a growing need for sales and support of Apple products in North Florida, Jim decided to take SS Technologies to the next level. In 2009, Jim changed the name to GatorTec and opened his first brick and mortar store in the Tioga Town Center in 2010. Following a period of rapid growth Jim decided to open a new, larger location at Butler Town Center in 2013, where we still reside to this day. Since then, GatorTec has grown into a team of more than 25 people serving Gainesville and the larger North Florida community.

In early 2012, GatorTec became an Apple Authorized Reseller – adding to their existing status of Apple Authorized Service Provider and Apple Consultant. In 2014, 2015, and 2016 GatorTec was recognized by Apple as a Premium Service Provider for consistently delivering exceptional repair support and customer experiences that meet Apple’s exacting standard for high-quality repair and prompt service. In December of 2015, GatorTec was recognized by Apple as a Premier Partner – a group of resellers who provide superior customer experience with focus on Apple solutions, service and support.

We strive to make every employee feel welcomed and valued regardless of race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, veteran status, marital status, cultural background, organizational level, and life experiences. Or for any other reason.

As you may have guessed, we foster an inclusive workplace, and those values don’t stop when we walk out of the office. Our culture of inclusion extends to our business partners and customers.

GatorTec offers competitive wages, while also rewarding our team members for going above and beyond for our customers.

CUSTOMER SERVICE   •   Gainesville FL

As a Customer Service Specialist, you’re highly skilled at uncovering customers’ needs, then following through with enlightening solutions.

You perform other roles within the store too, whether it’s maintaining visual merchandising or assisting team members. Always curious, you stay on top of news about products and initiatives, ready to apply your learning in customer interactions. Your success is measured by team and individual productivity as well as overall store performance. You’re proud to represent Apple, and you get great satisfaction from helping customers develop relationships with GatorTec.

Apple Trainer

TRAINING   •   Gainesville FL

As a Trainer, your main role is that of instructor, whether guiding small groups to learn or helping individuals complete projects.

But you’re also an excellent listener, taking the time to understand what each user hopes to achieve or learn. By adjusting your teaching style to each user’s individual skill level, you maximize his or her understanding and your own time. You recognize that purchasing a new product can sometimes help customers attain their goals. You spend much of your time leading scheduled training sessions, but you’re still comfortable interacting with store customers between those sessions.

Additional Requirements

•You’re comfortable selling as well as teaching, helping your team members out as needed.

APPLE SERVICE   •   Gainesville FL

As an iOS technician, you help new owners get started and current ones get quick, efficient support — developing strong, positive service relationships with GatorTec and Apple.

At other times, you refer customers to support team members who get them up and running again. In this role, you will be required to train to become an Apple Certified iOS technician where you will learn the skills to diagnose and repair the iPhone. The entire store team benefits from your commitment to providing the best care for customers. By helping GatorTec maintain strong relationships with customers, you are instrumental to our success.
