Client service interaction is generally handled via telephone, occasional video conferencing, and through our ticketing system. Most of our clients are experienced developers who run sophisticated environments. The job does not involve helping people open Word documents or locate the Start button.
This is not an entry level position; you’ll need to demonstrate skills that that allow you to troubleshoot advanced system problems quickly and efficiently. The Linux Systems Administrator is primarily responsible for run-time maintenance, helping our clients through times of difficulty with their networked, cloud-based environments. Opportunities also exist to work on projects – both internal and client facing – such as migrations, product and environment design.
Outstanding benefits package including medical, dental, and vision coverage, 401(k) plan with a generous company match, department and individual training budgets, bottomless coffee, cappuccino, and snacks, company provided lunch EVERY Wednesday, and bagels EVERY Friday! We are an equal opportunity employer, and we embrace cultural diversity.
