The Role

Do you want to work for one of the world's most established international fintech companies? Do you want the chance to work with bleeding edge technologies that are constantly evolving, on some of the most challenging and complex infrastructures within IT? You have come to the right place.

As a Data Centre Engineer you work closely with the System and Network Engineers to support the lifecycle process of the physical servers, networks and other infrastructure components through things like physical installations, server and network component maintenance in data centres and hardware troubleshooting. When at the central office, you will be responsible for remote management of data centre operations and of the personnel working there, and as travel time will begin to reduce for this position in the near future, this will become ever more important.

You will also have regular contact with colocation hosting partners and hardware vendors, coordinating the RMA process with suppliers, handling incoming and outgoing shipments and manage physical and administrative aspects of hardware inventory stock levels. This will mean ensuring a good working relationship with vendors and hosting partners, so your communication skills must be excellent.

The position requires frequent travels and out-of-hours work in our European colocation facilities and so the ideal candidate will be flexible in their schedules and takes enjoyment in travel

Role Requirements:

  • 3-5-year hands-on experience with Data Centre Engineering or Technical Field Support;
  • Good understanding of server, data storage and network hardware;
  • Working experience in Data Centre environments (racking, cabling);
  • Basic knowledge of operating systems and networking;
  • Demonstrated talent for solving problems proactively and creatively, result oriented;
  • High degree of flexibility and adaptability - must feel comfortable in a dynamic working environment;
  • Ability to safely lift and move up to 25kg and to work in elevated locations;
  • Valid driving license.
