Job description

​​We are looking for a highly motivated IT Service Support Agent (m/f/d) for our tech hub in Barcelona.

As an IT Service Support Agent, you provide insightful advice and friendly, hands-on/remote technical support to FREE NOW coworkers in need. You quickly diagnose technical issues on the spot and explain situations with patience and empathy. You offer solutions to quickly get users up and running again. Even if you're juggling more than one client, you stay conscious of their time demands as well as of your own.

You fulfil our service commitment with style, speed, and skill. And you earn the trust of your coworkers as you offer guidance, knowledge, and even tips and training. Our IT team is highly automation-oriented and we have been able to reduce a lot of manual tasks through automated process handling already, such as many of the day-to-day maintenance tasks and responses to issues and requests. That leaves more time to focus on more strategic and proactive work. You have an understanding and interest in automation and ideally have already worked with programming languages like Python and Powershell or even with IPaaS tools.

Your responsibilities:

  • Serve as the first point of contact for the FREE NOW employees Europe-wide
  • Perform on-site and remote technical troubleshooting through diagnostic techniques and pertinent questions
  • Respond to helpdesk requests in a ticket system (like JIRA)
  • Acquisition & provisioning of new hardware as well as managing hardware inventory
  • MDM management, deployment of software updates and configuration settings across the organisation
  • Onboarding & offboarding across all systems (AD/SSO/GSuite/Local Services)
  • Managing SaaS solutions (Google Workspace, Slack, Zoom)
  • Identify common problems and share your knowledge through documentation
  • Direct unresolved issues to the next level of support personnel
  • Identify and suggest possible improvements on procedures
  • Pass on any feedback or suggestions by clients to the appropriate internal team
  • Coordinate closely with office management, HR and other departments.

We are looking for someone who works in a friendly and sincere manner to achieve fast and customer-orientated solutions.

What you should bring:

  • You have at least 2 years work experience in IT Service Desk systems
  • You have fluent proficiency in English
  • You are keen to work in a multicultural team
  • You should show interest in interacting with your team and writing documentations
  • Experience in managing macOS, Windows, and iOS devices
  • Ability to diagnose and resolve basic technical issues
  • Good understanding of computer systems, mobile devices and other tech products
  • You have excellent interpersonal communication skills and find solutions in face-to-face meetings
  • You are skilled at explaining technical problems from a user perspective
  • You are customer-oriented and cool-tempered
  • A structured and well self-organised working method

Bonus points:

  • Knowledge of VPN from a user perspective
  • You already have gained experience in automating tasks (e.g. writing scripts)
  • Knowledge of Zoom, Okta, Slack, as well as Atlassian JIRA and Confluence
  • Experience in an international company or team away from your home country
  • Willing to travel to our other offices in Europe when support is needed

**please submit your applications in English.
