  • Manage and monitor all installed systems and infrastructure across the organisation to proactively maintain the highest levels of availability;
  • Install, configure, test, and maintain existing operating systems, application software, and system management tools;
  • Monitor and test application performance to identify potential bottlenecks and solutions, and work with suppliers to implement those fixes;
  • Provide second and third-level support with troubleshooting and resolving all technical issues when they arise; and
  • Maintain security, backup, and redundancy strategies.

You will be an analytical individual with proven experience in installing, configuring, and troubleshooting VMware Horizon VDI-based environments. The following attributes would also be advantageous:

  • Solid experience in the administration and performance tuning of Virtual Desktop Images;
  • Experience with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Microsoft Windows Server Features (AD, GP, DNS etc.)
  • Experience with monitoring systems;
  • Excellent client-facing and internal communication skills;
  • Strong organisational skills including attention to detail, problem-solving, and multi-tasking skills; and
