Job Description

  • Key networking support person in an IT company
  • Great variety of work and opportunity to grow
  • Apply your networking skills and general systems support experience

We're big on intuition here at Transparency... one might even say ESP, or the ancient dark art of mind reading (how dark depends on whose mind we are reading...) so when I called a client to see what jobs they had on it was no surprise to me to hear I caught him in the middle of a meeting about the need for the next systems Engineer. So after he got over feeling a little creeped out and checked his office for bugs (the electronic type, he' s not a clean freak), he described to me the role and type of candidate they are looking for, and it went something like this....

  • Genuine Systems Engineer role who can work on their network/comms projects and support
  • Strong Windows Server experience
  • Keenness to learn and work in a Managed Services Provider
  • Microsoft Certified
  • Cisco CCNA, Juniper, WatchGuard, Sophos type experience

Here is why you will like this role:

  • You will be supported to advance your career
  • You will have a lot of variety
  • Your networking knowledge and skill will be valued, even if you lack some experience
  • This is a young, fresh business - your experience will be valued.

Attention to detail, doing a job well, and being on top of your game technically are all essential attributes for this role. You will need to have outstanding customer service communication skills be able to work in a team and have solid, broad tech skills. If you work for or have worked for a Managed Services Provider or IT company looking after small and medium sized businesses then you are in the box seat for this role.

Reasonable support or project experience with the following technologies are needed or desired–

  • CCNA or equivalent work experience related to networking
  • VOIP 
  • Wireless Networking Experience
  • Windows Desktops in AD environments
  • Windows Server 2008/2012/R2 - support/admin experience
  • Exchange 2010/2013 and Office 365
  • Active Directory, Group Policy
  • Excellent network troubleshooting skills
  • Virtualisation experience – Some Hyper V / Some VMware – Replication, Design and Performance 
  • Small Project Design Experience

To meet the requirements of this role, you will have most of the following:

  • A warm yet professional manner with a genuine customer service focus.
  • Outstanding interpersonal skills at all levels of business
  • Ability to work in a team
  • Be rigorous in managing daily maintenance tasks.
  • A robust sense of humour.
  • Results driven work ethic.
  • Experience with Connectwise, Labtech, Kaseya, Nable or equivalent products, highly desirable.

I guess the key thing here is breadth of skills and a real keeness to learn and excel in a Manged Services environment.  So challenge me - hit me with your resumes people.. prove to me you have what it takes.
