Linux Systems Administrator
£30,000 - £40,000

Our IT Support services have evolved dramatically over the past couple of years and we're only at the start of what will be an exciting journey. The Linux Systems Admin is a hands-on role and you'll need to think on your feet, be proactive and prioritise your workload as you go. You'll be the team's subject matter expert in Linux, so you'll need to have dealt with complex 3rd line queries in a busy, Linux based, work environment. You'll also need to have existing experience with Linux Server Installation, administration, and support, as well as network administration.

How You'll Spend Your Time:

Dealing with a wide variety of IT support tickets, from systems access requests to hardware support
Helping to drive forward strategic projects that improve our overall IT support offering
Working with all types of stakeholders across different locations and time zones

What You'll Need To Bring:
Extensive knowledge of Linux Server, preferably (Ubuntu, CentOS) installation, administration, and support
Experience in a similar role would be ideal (e.g. Linux-focused 3rd line IT Support role)
Experience of Networks (IPSEC, OpenVPN, VLAN, Network Hardware, Firewalls etc) is essential
Experience in open source technologies
Good knowledge of server virtualisation and storage systems
First class communication skills and the ability to prioritize effectively
Passion, initiative and a "hands-on" approach to solving IT issues.
