Become an Optometric Technician

Location: Alpharetta, GA

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

We are looking for candidates who want the opportunity to move their career into healthcare with the potential to grow into a leadership role.  Our client is looking for a full time optometric technician for their established and fast-growing optometry practice with a collaborative, team-focused culture.  If you are great with people and enjoy performing a number of different tasks throughout the day, we need you!  A successful candidate is a great communicator and has confidence in their ability to learn quickly on the job.  A customer service attitude and a strong team focused work ethic are essential to success in our practice.  Optometric experience is a plus but is not required.  Experience in a fast paced environment that required similar multi-tasking and communication skills a huge plus.

In your role as an optometric technician, you will work up patients in preparation to see the providers.  Tasks include patient documentation throughout the visit, testing using a variety of clinical equipment, coordinating patient flow, and ensuring patient and insurance billing is accurate.  You will work directly with patients, doctors and office staff throughout the day.  A people focused attitude is a must.

This is not a job for someone who wants to do the same thing from day to day – there is a lot of variety and a huge opportunity to move into a leadership role within the team as your responsibilities grow.  The position pays a competitive wage to start and has a plan for increases as you demonstrate capabilities to take on additional responsibilities.
