Job description

This is an mid-level technical support position for individuals who have amazing customer service skills, are technically savvy, and are resourceful problem solvers interested in helping people.

Bytemark are looking for someone who wants to build, maintain and support live internet services. Through creative and critical thinking, you will strive to solve the customer's problem the first time, and make recommendations for optimizing their hosting platform.

Main responsibilities:

This role is initially centred around customer service. Ultimately, we are looking for system administrators who wish to build their skill set and grow with us.

Reporting to the Support Team Leader, you will be expected to offer advice to our customers as well as troubleshoot problems by hand. Our customers run predominantly Linux-based systems to host websites, though there are a variety of other operating systems in use, such as Windows.

Engage empathetically with our customers every day to answer their queries, offer advice and effectively solve their problems.
Leverage multiple communication channels, including phone calls, e-mail, ticketing systems and chats.
Provide technical advice on various topics such as DNS, Apache, MySQL, Exim and Varnish, as well as troubleshooting server problems by hand.
Provide fellow system administrators and colleagues with technical support and guidance.
Respond and resolve immediate issues with our infrastructure or with customer machines and work pro-actively to prevent future problems.
Respond to urgent emails and alerts during periods outside our normal business hours (when on the out-of-hours rota).


Excellent written and verbal communication skills in the English language
Friendly and tactful personality, with a dedication to the customer experience
Technical knowledge and experience, whether formally trained or self-taught
Knowledge of LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) is desirable
Ability to work well within a team in a fast-paced, constantly changing environment
Highly motivated person with a desire to learn, grow and adapt quickly
