BEING A BASEFARM SYSTEM ENGINEER
It's all about being in touch with that energy, what energy might that be? You know, the one you feel when you see a solution that no one else has thought of, the feeling that causes you to learn more. The feeling you get when you get to use your skills to build something great. That feeling is about passion and that’s where we want to be. Staying in that zone will cause inevitable growth and growth is a reward in itself.

It's also about being curious, if you are you probably already know a thing or two about topics like Azure, logshipping, MSMQ, deduplication, SCCM, powershell, ADFS, OSI layers, Octopus deploy, .Net, C#, AlwaysOn, AWS, DFS, ReFS, s3, serverless, RID's, SID's, PID's, Global Catalogs, SNMP, SAN, bat files, blue-green deployments, for loops, web.config files, RFC's, Kerberos and why not the ARPANET?

Passion should be felt in the stomach. We are looking for those people who get that magic thrill, that energetic tickle when they get the chance to use their talents to contribute to further growth.

We are looking for someone who's not only passionate about technology but also about using the technology to bring outstanding customer value.

But if the audience is not enjoying the music that is played, the rest doesn't really matter. At Basefarm we want our audience to be blown away!

So, if you know this feeling, if you want a platform to continue your growth, if you understand and care about the big picture then let us meet, we have a lot to talk about!
 

RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE POSITION

  • Create outstanding customer trust and confidence in Basefarm’s expertise and service delivery in general.
  • Provide the highest possible quality and customer service to your customers.
