As a member of the Tech Café team, you’ll provide support to all Starbucks partners. You’ll need to be efficient, responsive, and technically adept to support these users in a timely manner. Discretion is important in all aspects of your work. Digital devices are our lifelines – and conduits for communication. You are a trusted member of a small team. Humility, care, and respect are threaded throughout the green apron service that you’ve been tasked to provide.
