Infrastructure

What does an infrastructure engineer do?

Infrastructure engineers are responsible for maintaining all of the I.T. used within companies; without them organisations simply wouldn’t be able to operate successfully. The infrastructure engineer uses software, hardware and network tools to create effective solutions and systems for businesses, and assists in the design and implementation of tangible products and systems.

Adhering to both internal company standards and external industry requirements, typical projects an infrastructure engineer might be required to undertake include product installations, decommissions, technology evaluations/lab testing, system upgrades and migrations. There are two main types of infrastructure engineer; hardware and network. A hardware engineer researches, designs, develops and tests an application or system’s hardware, while a network engineer focuses on internet setup, maintaining and installing communication networks for businesses and between businesses – this can include data, voice and video technologies.

There should be lots of work available for good infrastructure engineers as most companies now need engineers to troubleshoot their hardware and infrastructure problems. This kind of working environment can be highly pressurised because issues need to be resolved quickly, and some weekend work is likely to be required.
