Day to day tasks

We expect new team members to be able to diagnose, resolve, document, and escalate when necessary a wide variety of incidents. We interact with our managed customers both reactively and proactively to help solve any issues or potential problems that may exist. As a component of these functions, there is a requirement of meeting and exceeding pre-defined service level agreements, both internally and externally.

We research emerging IT threats to keep ourselves apprised on day-zero of possible impact to ourselves or our customers. From time to time, members of our team will travel on location to support the Novacoast Engineering team or as a necessity in the event of an incident response. While our hours are generally fixed, because of the volatile nature of consultancy we are required to work paid overtime, sometimes on little notice.

Finally, we endeavor to constantly better ourselves and build a more effective team through continuous training and education, with a mind towards proving that training via vendor and industry certifications, the cost of which are reimbursed upon successful completion by Novacoast.
