Outsource systems administrators to the Philippines


What is a systems administrator?

A systems administrator is responsible for ensuring that computer systems are up-to-date, configured correctly and reliable for the users. They supervise the installation and management of networks such as desktop computers, wireless networks and server systems.

Systems administrator duties and tasks can include:

  • Liaising with stakeholders and relevant users to design an organisation’s system requirements and install appropriate hardware and software to match
  • Overseeing systems security, including user security permissions
  • Upgrading, repairing, evaluating and optimising systems to ensure quality performance
  • Assisting customers with troubleshooting software issues
  • Addressing system issues and working with users to identify solutions.

There are a few different types of system administrators, who specialise in:

  • Server administration
  • Network administration
  • Database administration
  • Security systems administration.

These technical tasks are particularly well-suited to being outsourced as they are repetitive and rules-based, requiring a high level of attention to detail. Organisations free up their local tech teams time by sending specialist IT tasks to outsourced technical support specialists. This allows your onshore team to focus on nurturing client relationships and performing revenue generating work.


What key skills and qualifications make a great systems administrator?

Systems administrators are the first point-of-contact for organisations when network or system issues arise for its users. They spend a lot of time defining, fixing and resolving these problems. No matter if you hire a specialist systems administrator or a general systems administrator, all of these roles require the ability to interpret technical information and code.

Outsourcing services recruit systems administrators the same way an internal, talent acquisition team would. Essentially, they ask the same questions to understand whether these offshore candidates would be able to provide the level of quality required by Australian organisations:

  • What experience and knowledge do you have in identifying and solving system issues?
  • What are your problem-solving and technical literacy skills like?
  • How do you ensure excellent communication when speaking to users who are not familiar with technology?
  • What automation and scripting techniques do you use?
  • Provide an example of how you showcased a high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
  • What experience do you have with database management tools such as SQL?
  • What software, hardware and computer systems are you familiar with?

In terms of qualifications, a higher education degree or certificate in information technology is desirable. Systems administrators need to be fluent in computer system software, programs and codes as they live in a system driven world. Outsourcing companies can help you find the right candidate to meet your organisation's tech support requirements by hiring these specialists who understand how to “speak computer” while maintaining excellent customer service skills.
