Experience & qualificaitons

Every field engineer has to have installation and troubleshooting experience with Server 2008/12 and Exchange 2010/13. Administration experience alone is not in-depth enough for this role.

They should also be capable of installing a new firewall reliably and securely (currently ZyXel and Cisco Meraki).

As the field engineering role is a senior role we would expect you to have a valid MCSA or above. If, however you are almost there (maybe 1 exam off, but almost ready to be taken) then we would consider you at a slightly reduced rate until they completed the qualification. An MCSE/A 2008 would be acceptable with a view to the candidate being eager to update ASAP.

Field engineers are close to their accounts (or prospective customer) and should therefore be comfortable discussing and understanding their requirements to offer solutions to develop an appropriate network or solution. Once agreed, to assist the project manager in ordering the right kit and additional resources where necessary.
