Responsibilities

As a Support Engineer, you’ll be one of the first points of contact for any IT-related requests or issues that our employees may experience.
You’ll be involved in one of the highest-paced, unique support structures anywhere; inquiries for support don’t go unanswered for longer than 10 minutes.
You’ll administer and support Windows configurations and records of everything end-users face as well as own the data reporting and cleanup. Windows endpoints include desktops or laptops, mobile devices, printers, and any peripherals in a hybrid working environment.
In addition to solving day-to-day issues, you’ll be responsible for understanding why they occur and providing long-term solutions to prevent them from happening again.
You will serve as a technical lead on projects involving our support teams. When needed, you’ll be the hands, eyes, and ears of other teams to provide hands-on assistance for systems and applications and have clear cross-team communication.
You’ll be suggesting recommendations based on requests from various departments and locations, run the required research, and test various potential solutions on a global scale.
