Opportunity Overview...

We have a new opening within the Linux Infrastructure team for an Engineer that will install our ERP system, offer support, maintain and provide guidance to our software customer base. It’s an exciting opportunity for either an experienced engineer or a person wishing to embark upon a career within the Linux environment.

The Linux Infrastructure Engineer will take responsibility for the successful installation, implementation and support of our bespoke ERP application, prof.ITplus (both on premise and hosted solutions). You may be tasked to attend pre-sales consultancy visits and report on your findings, upgrade a Linux Operating System to the latest version or work within the Linux Infrastructure team to offer support on our ERP Software.

You’ll report to our Linux Infrastructure and Web Support Manager who heads up our Helpdesk Linux Infrastructure Team which encompasses both installations and support.  The Helpdesk Team consists of prof.ITplus Application, Web and Linux Infrastructure Support. You will also work closely and collaborate with Sales, Account Management, Development, Software Support and our Technical Division so the jobholder will need great people-skills and great customer service skills to ensure the highest level of service and care is always delivered.

The broad range of tasks will include pre-sales consultancy, installation, service monitoring, incident management and consultancy. The Linux Infrastructure Engineers work within a rota system to allow each engineer to challenge themselves on all aspects of the role. You need to be able to maintain and manage a different variety of Linux Operating Systems and be familiar with the associated packages and applications associated with the operating system.
