RECRUITER NOTES: The Technical Support Engineers MUST not only be highly technical (with a strong understanding of VMware and Linux), but also understand the importance of building relationships and providing top notch customer service to all clients.  Joining this company (especially now) is an amazing opportunity for any senior level Technical Support Engineer who is excited to bust out of Corporate America and take their career to the next level.  

From a technical standpoint, a Senior Technical Engineer who has some familiarity/experience with scripting (Python, Perl, etc), with enterprise customer service experience, including advanced issues such as snapshots, replication, data recovery and/or networking, in-depth knowledge of Linux, VMware (Hyper-V and/or any other hypervisor), along with familiar with Azure, AWS or any other cloud technology would also be super attractive.
