Full Time


Our client is a highly successful Managed Service Provider we are looking for experienced Technical Engineers that have their experience weighted towards 'build out'.

We are looking for someone who can hit the ground running and enjoys creating something from scratch. You will need to be good at taking responsibility for figuring out what needs to be done; planning the steps to be followed, delivering and documenting the end result.


Technical Engineer role

1. Delivering critical components of customer build projects

2. An element of maintaining and developing our core infrastructure

3. An element of providing 'Buck Stops' escalation for critical issues (over and above the service desk escalation structure in place).


Person specification

We are particularly interested in Engineers with Managed Services Provider ( MSP) experience, used to working across multiple different customer types longer-term projects often found in those. This is a key driver for the Company.

Engineers to have a broad skill set covering everything from old school 'building servers' through, Citrix, VMWare and HyperV, Exchange, and SQL into newer public, private and Hybrid cloud solutions incorporating O365, Azure, Sharepoint etc.

More generally you must understand infrastructure design, clustering and fault tolerance. We appreciate that not every engineer can be expected to know everything.

Ideally you would have a good basic understanding of all of the above, with a specialism in one or two areas.

Whilst we are particularly interested in the more forward looking cloud technologies - Azure, Azure stack, O365 components, Unified Comms with Skype for Business etc, we do still interested in skills to maintain onprem infrastructure, so more established skills like Windows Server, Citrix, VMWare are also important

We are looking to build a balance of skills and aptitude in the following key areas:

  • Citrix
  • Azure
  • SolarWinds
  • VMWare
  • HyperV
  • SystemCentre
