Some MSPs are too big to feel comfortable, more of a number and a body on a seat than somewhere you feel you're really needed. Sure there's plenty of structure and resources but that's not everything.
Some MSPs are too small. They simply don't have the scale and haven't matured enough to have good structures and procedures for consistently delivering for their clients.
Some MSPs are just right. Big enough to have good structure in place for delivery, small enough to be nimble and feel like everyone is playing a crucial role. Large enough to be professional and competitive and financially stable, small enough to care.
This is a critical role that really matters in an MSP that feels, just right.
It's a Systems Engineer role at a well structured & growth oriented MSP. There's about 25 people here and the Systems Engineer role looks after a number of named Managed Services clients. There's a lot of escalated support work and some projects that are delivered for the clients you look after.
What are the career growth options? Either into a more dedicated infrastructure project services role, including team lead and management options or into a more specialist position in business systems and automation where you can go deep with the M365 suite around Sharepoint, Powerapps and Power Automate.
