The role: Systems Administrator
The ideal candidate for this position is someone that is currently in a systems administration or related position where they have extensive experience using Amazon Web Services (AWS), including EC2, S3, and other related services, and would also be familiar with deploying and managing databases, including MySQL or other NoSQL databases like MongoDB. They will have a background in technology, heavy Linux or unix scripting experience, and will have peripheral knowledge of a programming language.
We are a worldwide company, with users in many countries around the world. You have the opportunity to coordinate the deployment of code across multiple data centers across the world, and make sure that everything is always up and running smoothly and efficiently. You will work during the day shift in New York, but need to be reachable with a remote Internet connection in case of an urgent need in off-hours.
