About the Deployment Engineer role:
iomart Group is currently looking for two Deployment Engineers to join our rapidly expanding team within our Glasgow Headquarters.
The Deployments team consists of nine Deployment Engineers who work on individual projects, building out infrastructure to customer requirements, leading customer data and/or application migration into the new infrastructure, as required, and ensuring that the new infrastructure is documented and handed over to support appropriately before the end of the project.
You will have excellent interpersonal skills as you will be working with other teams across the business to ensure a consistently high level of service is provided for our customers.
Learning-wise, the majority of learning will be on the job - iomart Group has numerous Subject Matter Experts within our midst and you will benefit from their expertise. Where required, formal training and help with certification is provided.
We have seen Deployment Engineers move into other areas of the business such as Technical Account Management, Business Development and Solutions Architecture so if you are looking for an opportunity to build and develop your career then this could be the perfect role for you.
