Job Description:

Senior IT Specialist needed for our Incident Response Team!_Note: This position is designed as 100% remote, 8:30AM-5PM EST Monday-Friday, but may require afterhours/holiday/weekends to work an active incident. Travel is required based on the incident's need. We try to do them all remotely, but customer may demand onsite._**We need a senior geek who is fanatical about learning, troubleshooting, and making clients happy. We do Incident Response for malware and ransomware incidents, so flexibility to work weekends, nights, holidays, and long hours is an absolute necessity. We usually get a call regarding an incident and then have to fly on-site or tackle it remotely (if the client is willing to give us access to their network remotely) immediately.Required experience: At least 10 years in IT Operations (networking and system administration)Less than 5 years is entry-level. 5-10 years is junior/mid-level. > 10 years is usually experienced enough to be a senior level geek.Absolutely necessary for the position are skills and experience in:

  • Virtualization technologies, preferably VMware vSphere and Hyper-V
  • Veeam backup and recovery software
    • Windows system administration (administering and repairing Active Directory, Group Policy objects, PowerShell, repairing replication issues) - More than just user administration
    • Exchange Server management and Office 365 management and migration experience, as well as foundational knowledge of Azure Active Directory

Sometimes there are backups, but sometimes there are not and we have to rebuild from scratch. It is a given that the client has no documentation so everything is flying by the seat of your pants.This is a challenging, stressful position. You will learn more doing this job than any other position you've had and it is a great adventure.

        • Please don't be afraid of tackling end-user support issues as well as higher-level server and networking issues. Sometimes, we have to do password changes as mitigation efforts and you may be on the front lines helping users directly.
        • Please have the energy required to get the job done and follow through. It is a tasking and stressful position. Clients are usually down and losing millions of dollars every day so there is a lot of pressure to get their systems up and running.
