Senior Systems Administrator

Who we are

At APEXA, we make an effort to build and protect our relationships. We are dedicated to collaboration, forward-thinking solutions, and maintaining trust and integrity within our industry.  

As a subsidiary of LOGiQ3, we have the awesome opportunity to operate like a startup with the resources of an established organisation.  We operate in an industry that has existed for more than a hundred years, but we do so with the same degree of innovation, commitment, curiosity, flexibility and continuous improvement you’d expect from an organisation our size.

What we do

APEXA provides a SaaS based industry platform to manage the contracting and compliance of Life Insurance Advisors. We are a dynamic company delivering a leading edge solution to some of the largest Life Insurance Carriers and MGAs in Canada and we are proud to be their exclusive partner supporting Advisor Contracting and Compliance.

Who you are

You’re a Senior Systems Administrator currently working in a small or medium sized SaaS organisation with an entrepreneurial focus. In your role, being proactive is the key ingredient to your success.  This means you have the foresight to build infrastructure which will address potential future issues while having the skills to fix unexpected issues as they arise.  You have direct experience with a SaaS based solution built from .NET and dependent on an SQL database.  You thrive in a fast paced 24/7 business.  

We are looking for an incredibly resourceful Senior Systems Administrator who wants to take ownership of their learning and growth.

What’s in it for you?

APEXA is a growing business with an exciting and established product in a brand new market.  Because we’re small, you will have every opportunity to grow as we grow!  As we expand APEXA into new industries and geographies, our new Senior Systems Administrator will be our main support in growing our infrastructure.

You will:

  • Be on top of all maintenance issues and security issues. You will attend to the day to day requirements of the APEXA platform by monitoring performance and scanning the network for security issues.  You’ll be the first point of contact if an issue arises.
  • Be proactive.  This is one of the most important attributes we need in our Senior Systems Administrator. You’ll have to always be two steps ahead of the platform, ensuring the infrastructure is in place to prevent issues from arising.
  • Be collaborative.  Our Senior Systems Administrator will work with multiple stakeholders internally and externally to build and maintain the APEXA platform infrastructure.
  • Be a subject matter expert. We need someone to learn our infrastructure inside and out. While we expect our new Senior Systems Administrator to understand the frameworks and database we’re working with, we also need someone who loves to learn and be the point person on their subject.
  • Be on call.  The maintenance and upkeep of our network is the top priority for the Senior Systems Administrator role. Because of this, you are expected to be regularly available for support outside of business hours.

So, how do we know you are our next Senior Systems Administrator? You have:

  • Education and experience.  You have a Computer Science degree or equivalent experience coupled with 5 - 7 years in an IT Support role
  • Technical expertise.  You’ll have hands-on experience with:
    • .NET
    • SQL Database
    • Cloud
    • Web environment management and networking
  • Curiosity.  Along the theme of being proactive, our new Senior Systems Administrator needs to be curious. You need to always be asking why and how an issue is arising.
  • A team oriented attitude. You’ll need to build, maintain and develop solid working relationships with internal and external teams.
  • Elite communication skills. This role requires excellent client-focused written and verbal communication skills.
  • An entrepreneurial spirit. As part of a small team, you’ll be expected to actively seek out change instead of waiting for it to happen. You’ll embrace critical questioning, innovation, service and continuous improvement in your day to day activities.
