Work with us
We’re looking for a passionate, highly motivated, responsible, self-managing IT Geek (a nerd with communication skills!). Ideally, you’ve had some experience in a managed services role. You love what you do and you’re really good at it, but you’re wanting something more. The culture you’re in mightn’t be as good as it could be, or you might have limited development opportunities in your current role, or you just feel like a new challenge.
Senior Systems Engineer
Christchurch or Auckland
We're looking for an awesome senior systems engineer to join our team.
You'd be working on our dedicated Cloud platform - which we've custom-built from the ground up - and playing an integral role in keeping it operating at best practise standards to provide an exceptional (reliable, cost effective and secure) experience to our customers.
You’d do this by:
providing exceptional managed services support and engineering services
supporting our internal systems and contributing to their ongoing development
assisting on Cloud and Security services projects
responding to and resolving Cloud infrastructure alerts
identifying opportunities, and assisting in developing services to add to CommArc’s Cloud and Security portfolio
assisting the Cloud and Security Services Manager in mentoring and leadership initiatives to the Cloud and Security services team.
You can demonstrate at least five years’ previous experience in a similar role with specific experience and knowledge of
networking technologies and storage (SAN) technology.
Having experience with VMware, vCloud Director, VMware NSX-V, 3Par storage administration, HPE Blade chassis management and FortiGate firewalls would also be an advantage, but is not a requirement
excellent written and personal communication skills
a high standard of personal presentation
excellent problem-solving skills
the ability to work independently without supervision
You are confident and willing and you thrive on working in a dynamic and changing technology environment
You provide outstanding customer service
You support your manager and have the ability to lead, mentor and engage other members of the team
You have integrity, honesty, a strong work ethic, a 'can do' attitude and a sense of humour
You are a team player
You are legally allowed to work in New Zealand.
Having experience in a managed services role will be an advantage. If you don't have it (yet!), but have at least five years’ experience in any technical IT role, we’d still like to hear from you. If we think you're the right fit and have what it takes, we can teach you.
What's in it for you?
You would be working for a fully New Zealand-owned and operated company that’s independent, honest, open and direct. We believe in leading by example. We always do what's best for our clients and we have fun doing it. You’d also be part of a great team culture and you’d have opportunities for professional development. We offer an appropriate remuneration package for the role, and other benefits.
