About the Role

As a Senior Systems Engineer at Brightly, you’ll have a pivotal role in designing, deploying, managing, and supporting secure, cutting-edge technology solutions for our diverse customer base. While most clients are cloud-based, some maintain hybrid setups with on-premise infrastructure.

You should have at least 5 years of experience managing Windows Server, virtualisation (VMware and HyperV), local and cloud migrations, firewall and networking, backup systems, Microsoft 365, and Azure Cloud.
