Service Desk Engineer (Junior / Mid-level)
i3D.net is a leading provider of high-performance, low-latency hosting through a vast, privately-owned global network. As gaming veterans, we know what it takes for a network to withstand heavy demand, and as of 2019, we are a member of the Ubisoft family. Now we're growing faster than ever, keeping some of the world's biggest games and WebRTC services online, and their users connected.
No day will be the same for you as a Service Desk Engineer. From the moment you log in until the moment you are done for the day, there is always a new challenge ahead.
Each day starts with a handover with the US colleagues to ensure you are aware of the latest tasks at hand, after which you manage the servers of our customers and resolve their issues. A knack for effective multitasking is necessary – while you are busy keeping our customers happy, colleagues from different departments will also ask for your advice or help.
After lunchtime, a large game publisher submits a request. You can fulfill it either by yourself or with your team to ensure the customer is happy with the result. Sometimes, an incident happens, so you must quickly switch tasks to limit the impact on our customers to a minimum. With the incident solved, you communicate it to our customers with a write-up before returning to your regular duties. Before you sign off, you hand over any tasks or incidents to colleagues in the US at the end of your day.
