Systems Engineer - Networking, Linux, Windows

Posted 1 February by Yolk Recruitment Ltd Easy Apply Ended

The Systems Engineer

£35,000 to £45,000

Chapter One ­ - The Start Up

It started with a conversation in Paddington station on a blustery Thursday afternoon.

It started with a belief that there was already enough computing power in the world but an imbalance between supply and demand. Limitless Compute was born (well eventually!), harnessing underutilised computing power and enabling organisations to leverage this on demand. All that was left was to find something to do with it…

Three years, 16 more staff, 4 awards and 1000 customers later the 3D graphics and Animation industry will never be the same again. The world’s leading Animation and Visual Effect companies will no longer wonder if there is a better way of doing things.

So far so good.

Chapter 2 - The Scale Up

But the revolution continues…

Financial Services is next and we’re already talking to some of the largest investment banks but we’re not planning to stop there. We need a Systems Engineer to support our platforms as well as ensure customers get the best experience possible.
