IT solutions technician

Develop, implement and maintain complete IT solutions

An IT solutions technician develops, implements and maintains complete IT solutions, including hardware infrastructure, such as servers and networks, and software, such as operating systems, middleware and applications. As a member of a multi-disciplinary ‘DevOps’ style team, you’ll carry out the full set of stages across the whole solution lifecycle: requirements gathering, solution development, testing, implementation and ongoing support. In a more traditional organisation, you’ll likely be focused more on one or the other end of this broad set of activities. On an individual basis, you’ll gather and analyse requirements; design, develop, test, and implement IT solutions; and provide ongoing support directly to end users and for the underlying services.
