Job Overview

Parity Technologies builds core infrastructure for blockchains and Web 3.0 technologies. This means dealing with P2P networking, consensus algorithms, cryptography, databases, and decentralised applications. We strive to write the fastest, lightest, and safest core technology in Blockchain and write lots of open-source code.

We have built and launched live networks like Kusama and Polkadot atop the Substrate blockchain framework at Parity Technologies. We want to bring to these networks first-class end-to-end user experiences which tell a story of how easy it is to use these next-generation blockchains.

This is a highly varied ‘all things support’ type position, the successful individual will be supporting all levels of employee technical support issues, there is no first, second or third line system at Parity, this environment suits someone who likes to get their hands dirty. The ability to build productive relationships with colleagues at remote locations around the world will make you successful in this role as will patience and a sense of humour!

  • Excellent employee/end user-facing skills.
  • Strong analytical skills with demonstrated problem-solving ability.
  • Previous experience in which high levels of initiative, judgement, and tact have been demonstrated.
  • Manage purchases, returns and maintenance of the hardware and other equipment needed in a fast-escalating remote-first company.

  • Improve and propose improvements to our existing back office processes.
  • Deliver IT services including SaaS to the different teams.
  • Manage endpoint protection with a risk-based approach depending on context and use cases.
  • Keep the IT back office documentation clear and up to date.
  • Serve as the first point of contact helping your colleagues to resolve IT related issues - software and hardware - in person or remote.

Basic Qualification:

  • Have enough knowledge of Linux and Mac operating systems to be comfortable and sure when helping your colleagues.
  • Manage the command line interface with ease - both in Linux and MAC environments
  • Passion and good knowledge of common Open Source Software products
  • Have great knowledge and interest in the fast-changing consumer and professional IT device market.
  • Have exposure to user access management in a moving environment using multiple SaaS.

  • Collaborate with our Operations department to ship equipment all over the world.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to make things happen.
  • Have a structured and organised mindset. Generate documentation accordingly.
  • Know where it goes every pound you spend
  • Fluency in English

  • You like working with people, and people like to work with you.
  • You are a curious individual with an eagerness to learn new things.
  • You like to ask questions.
