Linux Systems Administrator
- The position is for an operational (run) group. SysAdmins will respond to incidents and as well as handle support requests for a variety of technologies related to our Linux service.
- As a queue owner, SysAdmins will be responsible for the general health of the queue (resolving tickets, identifying trends, finding the technical cause of problems) as well as recommending process/ system changes to eliminate incoming workload, optimizing team process, and escalating where appropriate.
- SysAdmins will also have project responsibilities (i.E. Executing some of the improvements identified by them or others on the team) and will own small projects within their respective area.
- The position is for a primary day shift (8-10 hours per day). While there are on-call responsibilities, this should be few and short on evenings and weekends. More extended off-shift time may be needed but these would be planned significantly in advance, and generally associated with project work where maintenance windows need to be observed.
- This is not a low level position. The person will need a deep understanding of their respective area. But this is also a hands-on operations position. Engineers that only want to do projects and/or design and architect solutions will not be happy with this role.
- While not a hard requirement, given the overall direction of IT infrastructure is to transition workloads to the cloud, experience with AWS and cloud development is a plus.
- Break/Fix, Provisioning & Decom, Patching, Migrations, Documentation
- Analyzing, troubleshooting and resolving system OS, software, and performance issues
- At least 5+ years of experience in relevant technologies
- Hands on knowledge of the Linux operating system environment
- Must be able to work well in an ambiguous and changing environment
- Core Skills/Technologies:
- RHEL 5, 6 (7 a plus)
- Red Hat Satellite
- Source code management (SVN, Git)
- Intermediate bash scripting (python a plus)
- Additional Skills/ Technologies:
- VMware vSphere
