Experienced Tech Support Staff - Desktop Support/Office365/AWS/Azure/WordPress (PART TIME)

Posted last month

This job is a customer-facing tech support role. You will need to have had experience performing remote access technical support to end-users to be considered for this role.

** This is a TECHNICAL and CUSTOMER-FACING job - please do not apply if you do not have experience with BOTH of these **

Before you apply please read through all of the sections below carefully.

A. Shift Setup (Part Time)
We are looking for an additional person across different shifts (times listed below):

Day: 8am to 4pm (AEDT) (Prefer Senior Engineers in this shift)
Evening: 4pm to 12pm (AEDT) (Prefer Jnr/Mid Level Engineers in this shift)

The shifts operate 7 days a week and you are required to be available for ALL 7 days. Weekends are on-call, meaning you don't need to be at a desk to do your work but you must be available in the designated shift block to answer calls and deal with high-priority tickets and respond to alerts.

What does Part Time mean? It is expected that 4 hours' work is completed on any weekday shift - shift reports are completed at the end of each shift. You must demonstrate that you have completed 4 hours work on every shift during the week. You must be available to take calls and answer tickets across the whole 8 hours shift block.

All our systems come with mobile apps so doing this whilst you're on the go (but still in a quiet area when taking a call) should be ok. The arrangements above mean you could have a second contract running at the same time but it's recommended that the other contract isn't one that requires you to take calls.

B. Pay Scale
Junior Engineer (This means you have had experience in some of the required technologies): AUD$500 per fortnight
Mid-Level Engineer (This means you have had experience in most of the required technologies): AUD$600 per fortnight
Senior-Engineer (This means you have had a solid working experience will all of the required technologies): AUD$700 per fortnight

I am open to negotiation with suitable candidates. If you like the setup and the work we're offering, put in a bid and let's have a chat.

9. Windows Servers: For some clients and some other services we utilise Windows Servers.
