Systems Engineer | DistantJob - Remote Recruitment Agency

Systems Engineer

“What we're seeing is a transition, the beginning of an S curve of growth for the data center industry. Unlike the internet bubble around 2000 – which involved ideas that had yet to generate any revenue – the cloud, with upward of $4 trillion in market cap, is a real business with real opportunities. This isn't a bubble.” – Dave Crowley, Microsoft

Oh right, we should do the responsible thing and give you details first. Our client provides enterprise-class managed data center services, and they're looking for a Systems Engineer for their team. They have around 70 datacenters servicing 29 different markets, and we can't disclose their clients – but think about any major industry player from hyperscalers, banks, healthcare and social media platforms, and they're likely in their CRM.

  • Produce QA, design, and other pertinent documentation
  • Arrange requirement-gathering sessions with stakeholders
  • Generate functional and technical specification documentation
