About The Team
The Corporate Engineering team at Deputy delivers technology, strategy and solutions to the business, and our core mission is to enable and empower Deputies with best in class technology. We are a small and mighty team with a global impact. We’re respected and trusted by people on every team, and we work hard every day to earn that privilege. We balance our time between projects, strategy and support. Our primary job is to “keep the lights on,” keep Deputies connected, and our work is critical to the business.
About The Job
As an IT Operations Engineer on the Corporate Engineering team, you’ll be responsible for support of our employees and the day-to-day operations of our corporate infrastructure at Deputy. This is all about support, and it’s an internal role, supporting the corporate business and Deputy employees. You’re excited about support — our customers are the folks that build the product, support customers, and run the business. You thrive on variety, from troubleshooting an iPhone app, to finding the right cable, to learning how to admin a new system, and all while being happy to help with issues that pop up. We have a ton of work to do, so you’re keen to help find areas to jump in and improve.

What you'll do:

  • You’ll be the first line of support and customer facing
  • You’ll work on tickets, chat, and in-person/walk up support for employees in our office. You’ve got experience using a ticketing system and chat, such as zendesk or JIRA, and #slack.
  • We’re Mac focused. You know how to troubleshoot, use the terminal, and how to make macOS work in the enterprise. 
  • You’ll help with on-site work at our HQ in Sydney, including provisioning new hire laptops, receiving inventory, and desk moves and related IT facilities tasks. You’ll support SaaS applications — Google Workspace, Slack, Meet, 1Password, etc.
  • You’ll work with Mac endpoint and mobile device management apps.
  • You’ll admin SSO tools, such as Okta.
  • Document your solutions, create help articles and identify ways to automate or fix busywork.
  • Manage, respond to, and fix critical incidents and issues and escalate as needed.
  • Some work outside of hours where reasonable and necessary (i.e. work after primary business hours to minimize disruption if needed.)
  • You’ll work on projects that will deliver improvements to our users and document as you go.
  • What you've got:

  • 1-2+ years in a regional or global role in/with international offices; you’ve worked with various forms of support requests.
  • You’ve provided remote support to people in multiple countries, across time zones, and you’re familiar with shipping and receiving hardware and customs. Exceptionally great communication skills across all media - you can make your ideas clear, and you can help people who might be frustrated or time poor without losing your cool. 
  • You write extremely well, whether it’s in tickets, email or #slack, and you’re not a robot. 
  • A desire to provide a great experience for others - when they win, you win.
  • You take security seriously.
  • You’ve worked in a startup or tech company; this is controlled chaos and you thrive in it.
  • You understand networking fundamentals and basic troubleshooting
  • You can self-manage, and can accurately plan your day between inbound requests.
  • You’re comfortable dealing with ambiguity, and sometimes making the right decision without all the data.
