Desktop / Infrastructure Engineer | Linux Essential | Boutique Investment Co.

Our client is a global investment company with offices in Asia, Europe and the United States. You do *not* have to have come from a financial services background for success in this role but the successful candidate will ideally come from a small/medium-sized business.

You will be the first line of contact in this London boutique finance investment house employing 150 people globally. You will personally be supporting circa 50 VIP users consisting of traders, investment bankers and asset managers etc. They are looking for an exceptional candidate to join their growing Helpdesk/Desktop/Infrastructure team.

This is a varied role. Having some Linux exposure is a pre-requisite for this role along with wanting to learn heaps by being exposed to new challenges and projects daily. This is a newly created role with x2 openings available to relieve the manager who is based in a different time zone in Hong Kong.

** As this is financial services it is essential that you are able to work in the Central London offices 5 days a week, 07:30 - 17:00 **

Core technologies / responsibilities:

  • Office 365 - EXPERT level required
  • Linux scripting/admin experience - Basic level is ok, but exposure is essential
  • Provide first level and second level support to VIP users
  • Windows and Linux Server admin
  • Engage in real-time in the life cycle of user onboarding, support, offboarding
  • Mobile Device Management and user support
  • Networking Cisco routers - nice to have but not essential
  • Windows/Linux Server admin - nice to have
  • Bloomberg terminal support - nice to have
  • Advanced Excel support knowledge is a bonus
  • Trading application support - you will gain exposure

Typically dealing with new joiner and relocation setups, daily support of user requests, purchase and maintenance of desktops and smartphones, software licensing, and application deployment. You will continuously improve workflows by assessing, documenting and programming fixes and solutions, and providing training.

Our client is looking for you to have *GUMPTION* to be able to initiate new ideas and improvements and if you have repetitive tasks to perform, write a script to automate them etc.

Other non-tech duties:

  • Improve and automate reports using APIs or datafiles
  • General support, monitoring, and reporting
  • Regular inventory and IT asset management
  • Incident handling and change management
  • Evaluate software and hardware
  • 3rd-party vendor interactions
  • Technical documentation

A huge plus would be coming from a finance or investment background with some development (C /Java), scripting (PowerShell/Python) and automation experience but this isn't essential.

SUCH A GREAT ROLE HERE. This will be popular - please apply ASAP for success!
