Senior Server Network Engineer

Are you ready to take your IT career beyond break/fix and focus on long-term stability? Do you like to get into the nitty gritty details on a range of technologies and do terms like ZFS, QEMU, VDI, Debian and Python excite you? Do you see monitoring alerts when you sleep, or do you reach your breaking point when you see tangled cords, out-of-date systems, and crooked stickers? 

If you match this description, then we’re searching for you. 

We are Gecko Networks, a Milwaukee-based information technology services provider that supplies and manages IT systems for small businesses. 

As we grow our operations, we are looking to add a Server and Network Operations Engineer to our team of talented techies – with potential to become a leadership role in the future. 

The Gecko Way 

Here at Gecko, our mission is to use technology to make our clients’ lives easier. Think about it; doctors, nurses, scientists, architects, engineers, administrators, and receptionists all just want to do their work without suffering technological drama. Many of them work in small firms that can’t afford to have dedicated IT. 

That’s where you come in. As a member of a small team, you’ll be responsible for server and network setup, maintenance, and support across our customer base. 

With your expertise in networks, virtualization, Linux server, Windows server, Windows desktop, Active Directory, VoIP, VDI, VPNs, wifi, snapshot filesystems, and scripting you will be the hero – providing our client’s systems that allow them to work harder, serve their customers more efficiently and have fewer tech-related frustrations. 

Your Life at Gecko 

While Gecko is growing, we are still a small company – with high expectations, accountability, camaraderie, and no politics. Your work is central to our mission and success. Your expertise, wisdom, and creativity will be praised and your commitment to excellence and accountability will be rewarded with trust, respect, and responsibility. 

As part of the Gecko Family, we will provide you with: 

  • Opportunities for advancement and professional growth.
  • A collaborative, respectful work environment.
  • A major role in the growth of an American company.
  • A healthy work/life balance.
