Linux Technical Support Engineer

Looking for a typical call center role? This isn’t it.

Sorry but we don’t do “typical.” In this highly technical support role, you won’t be taking scheduled bathroom breaks and explaining to customers how to reboot their routers.

What you will do is carefully examine infrastructures and environmental variables. You’ll perform detailed analyses of log files. You’ll share your deep analytical troubleshooting knowledge of tough problems, collaborating with the brilliant IT managers and administrators of Fortune 500 companies (aka: our customers). You’ll work on the edge of IT and virtualization, getting trained in what you don’t know and recognized for what you do, and you’ll help us change how the world uses data.

At Veeam, you can expect:

No call center KPIs—the quality of your work is the key performance indicator. 

Growth—want to learn Cascading Replication, WAFL, and Block Cloning? Great! We’ll teach you. Already know what they are? Great! We’ll be a good match. 

Recognition—we prefer to promote engineers internally. We can tell from your work if you want to be technically challenged.

Flexibility—we all have lives outside of work. We offer a variety of shifts to fit your life needs.

Casual dress code—We have a casual work environment and respectful dress code.
