    Application Support Engineer


    The Company

    Electrum is an exciting B2B tech company working with some of South Africa’s biggest household names. We love that the projects we work on touch the lives of millions of South Africans every day, making a real difference – whether that’s giving an aspiring businesswoman access to banking for the first time, or distributing government financial aid to thousands of students.


    The Role

    This is an excellent opportunity for a motivated Application Support Engineer to provide end-user support to a number of key clients.

    You’ll get to work with cloud payments software that is used by major international banks and retailers. You will be responsible for supporting a highly complex environment that requires 99.9% uptime. In addition, you will assist in the building, maintenance, and troubleshooting of our rapidly expanding cloud infrastructure and leading-edge payments tech.

    You will apply analytical skills and technical knowledge to solve complex payments software problems.

    • Responsible for providing technical support to Electrum’s customers to resolve technical issues

    • Work with software developers, project managers and architects to resolve production and support issues according to Electrum’s

    • Updating the Wiki with relevant technical support documentation

    • Experience with support ticketing systems such as Freshdesk

    • Responsible for implementing and abiding by Electrum’s security measures

    • Mentor junior and intermediate support engineers


    • Bachelor's degree in Information Technology or other relevant qualification

    • 3 - 5 years of support experience/systems engineering experience

    • Strong Linux administration experience

    • Excellent database knowledge and experience using MySQL (writing SQL scripts and/Perl, Python, Shell)

    • Experience working with Java code

    • Customer Support experience

    • Experience using AWS

    • Payments and SAAS experience


    A good work-life balance is very important at Electrum. You know when your brain has switched off for the day and you need to go for a surf, but you also know when the status report you have written is sloppy. At Electrum you will be expected to know when you deserve a surf and when you need to knuckle down and get the work done. For the more “knuckle down” days we make it worth your while with benefits such as:

    • Onsite gym and shower facilities

    • Daily cooked lunches and a stocked kitchen for the mid-day nibbles

    • A rad coffee station where you can practice your cappuccino foam art

    • Understanding that if an emergency comes up, family comes first

    • Flexible work hours

    • A recreational area with foosball, table tennis and fatsaks that are perfect for naps

    To make sure that we stay a tight knit team, but still get to that surfing we have benefits such as:

    • Company getaways

    • Team socialising, hikes, getaways, and dinners

    We have created a safe, transparent environment where:

    • We know mistakes happen, and that’s okay. We even have a 3 step approach to dealing with them:

      • 1- Tell everyone about it

      • 2 - Fix mistake

      • 3 - Tell everyone about it

    • You are responsible for your actions – both the successes and the failures

    • We talk openly about salaries and bonuses. At Electrum we believe it’s evident why some people earn more and others a bit less. It’s like being on a sports team where salaries are widely known.
