  2. Have a technical degree such as control systems engineer/technician, electrical engineer/technician, instrumentation engineer/technician or equivalent.
  3. Have at least 3 years of hands-on experience as an implementation engineer or equivalent role.
  4. Ideally, you have at least 3 years of hands-on experience and proven knowledge of Linux configurations, troubleshooting methodologies as well as in creating technical documentation and testing set-ups so that you are able to take on operating system installations and hardware network configurations to documentation, application deployment, and rigorous testing procedures.
  5. Have exceptional English communication and people skills, adept at conveying complex technical information to both tech and non-tech stakeholders.
  6. Are willing to travel abroad and visit offshore locations.
