Come and Work @ SmoothWall UK
Yet again, we SmoothFolk are recruiting!
Two vacancies that might interest Edugeekers to talk about. I'll update this post with any extra details as and when.
Even if you don't think you match up exactly to the job description -get in touch. We may have some room for manoeuvre.
Technical Pre-Sales, Leeds
This role involves supporting the sales team when they present solutions to potential customers of all shapes and sizes, and involves quite a bit of travel, although you do get a desk to drive as well. Next to me, probably, you potentially lucky devils, you.
Update: People have asked about the hours. Officially, 0900-0530 + hour for lunch. Most days the office opens @ 0730, and there's usually some stragglers in at 19:00, so some flexibility will be expected - but it does work in both directions. Holiday I *think* is 21 + BH.
Customer facing, so must be presentable! Need decent networking knowledge, and *either* windows or Linux. Both obviously would be attractive, but we can teach either. Which one you are strong in will depend who helps train you :) This will be long on the "learning on the job" stuff. Active edugeek poster preferred ;) and you'll likely get to go to BETT and the conferences... so if you've never been...
Pre-Sales engineer, Full Ad
Technical Support, Southampton
A more technically involved role, you will definitely need to know your networking, and have held some form of helpdesk/supporting role. More office based, this one, but in the airconditioned coolness of SmoothWall Towers (soton). You'd be answering inbound support calls by phone/email and working in our ever growing international team of support agents. Weekend shiftwork is inevitable, with pay to match though. Possibly some evening work when we are short in the US.
Full ad - Support engineer
In terms of salary - I really don't know for the support job (no ad yet, and it's not me recruiting that one), and for Pre-sales - well, I have a hard upper bound - but no real fixed ideas. The role is relatively junior - but with good scope for progression. Second/third job perhaps. PM me with your expectations and i'll tell you if we have a match!
