Postby TheNewit » Wed Jan 14, 2015 4:08 pm

Do you primarily run *nix on your desktop at home?

Does the thought of being a future SysAdmin of one of the world’s largest cluster environments excite you?

If you’ve jumped out of your chair shouting YES to both those questions then we should talk!

We are looking for an excited young person to join our team as a Junior SysAdmin. You will come to us with a great knowledge of *nix from the long hours spent tinkering with your own *nix systems. You’ll already be pretty good at bash scripting and general *nix SysAdmin tasks, even if only in a non-commercial capacity.

We are looking for someone young, enthusiastic and energetic. What you will receive, along with a fantastic group of colleagues who will support and encourage you, is pathway to being a full SysAdmin to one of the largest clusters in the world!

As well as data room tasks associated with managing a large cluster, this role includes desktop support of our 160+ internal users on a global scale, predominately on *nix platforms, but also includes some Windows and Mac desktops.

Does this sound like you? Send us your resume! Let us know you read the whole job description by including the word ‘GEOSOLUTIONS’ in the subject of your email.

If your *nix exposure is primarily non-commercial and not obvious on your resume, then outline your experience on a cover letter. Links to your contributions to the Linux community in way for open source projects, forum activity may assist with this.
