Systems Engineer / Technical Specialist (SQL Server)


Headline: You’ll be the go-to-person for all infrastructure related BAU and project work within a small support team working for a software company. At least 50% of the role will be software support.
Location: Leicester
Package: £25-£28k (may go up to £32k for seniors) + flexible working hours + 25 days holiday + free fruit!
Ideal candidate: A Systems Engineer/ Application Support Analyst with Windows Server knowledge, experience working with SQL Server, knowledge and understanding of network routers/ switches/ firewalls, or a Systems Administrator/IT Support Analyst who has supported SQL based applications as a large part of their role.

Overview of the role!

We’ve received a new vacancy from a Leicester based software company who are looking for their first infrastructure focused support engineer (please note - you will need a driving licence for this role).

The role will involve working as part of a small software support team, who configure, install and support the company’s highly complex (and pretty cool!) software on behalf of external customers. They need someone who is able to deal with more complex network and server problems for their customers, in addition to providing software support (approx. 50/50 split), so this role would suit someone coming from a fairly broad IT support background but with some dedicated software support and SQL experience. You will also get the chance to get involved with project work and work closely with the IT manager on internal IT projects.

This role would suit someone who has an extensive experience working with SQL servers, but also has a good knowledge and understanding of MS products (such as Windows Servers, Active Directory etc) and networks too. This role would also be suitable for someone who may have a couple of years’ experience in application/ software support but is keen on expanding their skills set and maybe dabbles with some networking in their own time.


  • Experience with SQL Server
  • Windows Server (2008 / 2012 r2 etc.)
  • Networking
  • Active directory, exchange, office 365 etc
  • Knowledge and understanding of network routers/ switches/ firewalls.

What's on offer?

  • Salary: £25-£28k (may go up to £32k for seniors)
  • 25 days holiday with bank holidays on top as standard (plus the chance to buy 5 extra days
  • each year)
  • Three monitor workstations with monitor arms
  • Pool table, darts board, table football and games console
  • Childcare vouchers

We’re looking to interview at very short notice!
