Senior Helpdesk Specialist

Snyk

Snyk

Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
Posted on Friday, May 3, 2024

Every day, the world gets more digital thanks to tens of millions of developers building the future faster than ever. But with exponential growth comes exponential risk, as outnumbered security teams struggle to secure mountains of code. This is where Snyk (pronounced “sneak”) comes in. Snyk is a developer security platform that makes it easy for development teams to find, prioritize, and fix security vulnerabilities in code, dependencies, containers, and cloud infrastructure — and do it all right from the start. Snyk is on a mission to make the world a more secure place by empowering developers to develop fast and stay secure.

Joining Snyk means embracing our core values: One Team, Care Deeply, Customer Centric, and Forward Thinking. As a member of our team, you’ll have the opportunity to thrive in a dynamic environment where fostering collaboration, leading with empathy, driving business impact, and inspiring trust are at the heart of everything we do.

Our Opportunity:

As a Senior Help Desk Specialist, you’ll be administering our key tools and platforms, maintaining your local office infrastructure (networking and video conferencing equipment), and collaborating with all of Snyk’s departments to ensure their systems are running smoothly. Senior Help Desk Specialists take ownership of tasks of increasing complexity (for example system design and implementation, advanced technical support requests). They complete tasks with minimal guidance and direction from others. They also develop mastery in one or two technical areas, and begin to identify an area of specialization within CIS.

This is a unique opportunity to manage the local Tel Aviv help desk and office network responsibilities (100+ employees) as a "one person show", while also working on a global scale, with teammates in Romania, UK and US. This role reports to the Help Desk Manager in Boston.

You'll spend your time:

  • Providing on-site Help Desk services to our local Israeli employees, and remote services from time to time across the globe.
  • Handling complex technical issues and escalating problems to higher-level support when necessary.
  • Collaborating with other CIS teams and with stakeholders to troubleshoot and resolve system-wide issues, contributing to overall system and infrastructure improvements.
  • Taking ownership of assigned tasks and projects, seeking guidance when needed, and jumping in proactively to contribute to strategic initiatives.
  • Providing user support, training, and documentation to ensure effective utilization of systems & tools.
  • Administering SaaS platforms (Okta, Slack, Google Workspace, Cisco Meraki, and Zoom) in Snyk.
  • Managing employee onboarding and offboarding tasks.
  • Maintaining local office infrastructure.
  • Contribute new content to and maintain the company-facing knowledge base.
  • Supporting in-office events, including A/V support.
  • Required office attendance: 4 days per week.

What you'll need:

  • 5+ years of relevant experience as an IT Specialist, Helpdesk Specialist, or System Administrator.
  • Extensive experience supporting MacOS in an enterprise environment (we are almost exclusively Mac users!).
  • Experience with Slack, Okta, Jira, Zoom and Google Workspace administration.
  • Experience in supporting office infrastructure (Cisco Meraki networking and AV) and MDM solutions (JAMF, Intune).
  • Multitasking, prioritization, and project management skills, and applying them in a fast-paced environment.
  • Advanced communication skills to interact with end-users, understand their IT-related problems, and provide effective technical support in a friendly and professional manner.

We'd be lucky if you:

  • Have experience using data to illustrate support trends.
  • Have worked in a DevSecOps or Security company before.
