What is the IT Support Engineer

With the increasing use of technology in modern times, there is a growing requirement to provide technical support. Many organizations locate their technical support departments or call centers in countries or regions with lower costs. Dell was amongst the first companies to outsource their technical support and customer service departments to India in 2001. There has also been a growth in companies specializing in providing technical support to other organizations. These are often referred to as IT MSPs (IT Managed Service Providers).  

We are actively hiring IT Support Engineers in Singapore and Malaysia.
