Our technology support teams are located in each location where Double Negative operates. We share a global network and provide a follow-the-sun support function.

The main responsibilities of this role will be supporting our end-users and solving technical problems, as well as maintaining and supporting our extensive Linux based server and desktop infrastructure. You will update configurations across Windows, Linux and macOS using our configuration management system (SaltStack), and monitor and respond to alerts across our server and network infrastructure.

You will also be involved in peer-reviewing changes using Bitbucket and git, and managing and documenting your work using JIRA and Confluence.
