Job Description

Founded in 1998, blueAPACHE is trusted to deliver business-critical IT (on-premise and IT as a service) to some of Australia's most successful organisations. Our reputation for innovation and customer focus, helping a broad range of clients achieve their unique strategic and operational objectives. We achieve this by changing the way organisations access and use technology and communications.

Due to organisational growth, we are seeking an experienced Systems Support Engineer to join our national Service Desk.

You will be handling all sorts of general IT issues, including taking incoming phone calls, however for systems related issues you would be the escalation point for the team. You would also act as a subject matter expert to provide skills transfer. (Can you pretty this part up?)

  • Microsoft Windows desktop operating system.
  • Microsoft Windows Server operating system.
