job description

We are looking for a system administrator who is looking to take on a new challenge in this position. The role will require you to help keep the infrastructure accessible, stable, and secure. Working closely with devops, operations, and developers means wearing many hats and always changing projects.

We are a small but rapidly growing company consisting of a group of bright and passionate people who are looking to dramatically change and improve the lives of business owners. We pride ourselves on thinking and acting differently.

What technical skills are we looking for:

Linux (Installation, configuration, hardening, diagnostics)
AWS/OCI (Or any other cloud provider) administration
Networking skills (connectivity, firewall, network protocols etc)
Software Administration such as Hubspot, Jira, Github, Rise HR
OS patching and Disaster recovery
IT Security (firewalls, security policies, user administration etc)
Password and identity management
Process and Policy Documentation - Confluence etc.
Bash and Python (good to have OOPs) scripting
Vendor management (procurement, management, compliance)
Remote access management/support
Backup infrastructure and management
System monitoring
Disk/File Management

Below are some qualifications and characteristics we are looking for:
You are someone with an insatiable curiosity to learn. When something has always been done a certain way, you wonder why nobody has begun to do it differently
You are someone who refuses to believe “no, we can’t do that” is an acceptable answer to a question, and inspire eye rolling from how much you ask the question “why not” of your colleagues
People really like working with you. You are kind, social, humble, and want the best for others.
Your past employment experiences have frustrated you about not being able to see the results of your work. You dream of directly contributing to the success of a great organization
You think technology can help change the world – you read Techcrunch and/or VentureBeat, and have ambitions to perhaps start your own company some day
You have an uncanny ability to influence people – without them knowing that you actually influenced them.
You think automation is important – and seek out processes, systems and tools that enable better decision making with minimal re-work
You usually don’t immediately know the answer to everything – but you are adept at using tools and seeking opinions to get the right answer

Candidates must have 4+ years technical experience, if you are interested pls send your resume at
