Job Role

As Systems Engineer you will join our small team and work closely with other staff, to help build out, maintain, and troubleshoot our rapidly expanding infrastructure.

You will be required to think on your feet to resolve client’s issues to their satisfaction, even with issues that are undocumented, or you have not previously seen. Due to this a problem-solving mindset is crucial.

The vast majority of our systems, and our client’s systems are Windows and Windows Server based – ranging from Windows XP and Server 2003 up to Windows 10 and Server 2019.

A good working knowledge of cPanel / Linux is a plus as all of our websites are hosted on a virtualised cPanel server.

The job changes from day to day. You may be required to do anything from explaining how to use Microsoft Word, to planning a project to replace a client’s server and network infrastructure.

Effectively this role will mainly be 1st and 2nd line support, but with regular 3rd line and project work. You will also have the opportunity to change internal processes and suggest new services we could offer or different ways of doing so. You will have direct input to management and be able to make many decisions on your own.
