Junior IT Support Specialist

Who we are

A piece of the moon, a complete dinosaur skeleton, the Pope's hat, the world's smallest book - at Catawiki, we come across extraordinary objects such as these every day. 

As Europe’s fastest growing online auction platform, our mission is to make special objects available to everyone. In fact, 14 million users are buying and selling on Catawiki every month. This means we are continually growing and always on the lookout for new talent!

Born and raised in The Netherlands, we started in 2008 as a platform where collectors could manage their collections online. Yet, times change, ideas evolve, and in 2011 we hosted our first online auction and we haven’t looked back since! We’ve now grown to 500 Catawikians working across 7 international offices and are proud to have maintained our start-up mentality.  

So what's the job

As our Junior IT Support Specialist you will ensure that your Catawiki colleagues (Catawikians!) are equipped with the relevant hardware and solve their IT support tickets. You are the first point of call for resolving problems with laptops and mobile phones as well as the wider technology infrastructure including software access management, video conferencing tools, printers, WiFi, and software licensing. You will maintain the internal IT process documentation and ensure people are able to help themselves where possible. When you reach the limits of your knowledge, you work with your IT team mates to see the problem through to a close.
You will work 5 days a week and are flexible to starting or finishing outside of usual office hours to support our SE Asia colleagues. 

Your main tasks will include:

  • First-line support for our software platforms including GSuite, OneLogin, JIRA help-desk and Confluence.
  • Performing hands-on fixes at the hardware level, including installing and upgrading software, configuring operating systems and applications for Mac OS and Chrome OS.
  • Shipping and receiving hardware to Catawikians.
  • Remote diagnostics and maintenance using JAMF Pro and GSuite admin portal.
  • Maintaining the VoIP telephone system: assigning licenses and extensions, troubleshooting and liaising with suppliers as necessary.
  • Troubleshooting issues with internet connectivity, CRM and VoIP tools (We use Hubspot, and Kustomer but prior knowledge of these is not essential).
  • Liaising with hardware providers to order new technology equipment and software licenses internationally, and keeping the asset registry updated.
  • Working with our IT Support Specialists to resolve more complex adhoc issues, identifying areas for improvement, and escalating problems as necessary.
