You will ensure the reliability, safety, and efficiency of our data centers, utilizing your technical skills and knowledge.

What will you do?

As an electrical technician, you will be part of a team responsible for managing and maintaining our data center infrastructure. Your task is to optimize power supply and cooling operations in collaboration with your colleagues by performing preventive maintenance and resolving technical malfunctions. Additionally, you will monitor infrastructure performance and availability and implement security measures. You will also be involved in the physical management of servers, storage, and networks, including installing additional hardware, laying fiber optic connections, and replacing defective hardware.

You will also be responsible for documenting procedures and coordinating with other BIT team members and suppliers to optimize the data center infrastructure. Furthermore, you will contribute to the development of new data center solutions and stay updated on the latest developments in data center management and technology.

In addition to your daily responsibilities, you will frequently conduct tours for various audiences, such as students, clients, and other interested parties. During these tours, you will translate complex technical information into understandable language and tell a good story.
