9/18: Linux System Administrator/ Technical Support – Chicago Loop

Posted: Updated:

WiredTree - http://www.wiredtree.com - is looking for more full-time system administrator/support technicians to join our team in our downtown Chicago offices. WiredTree is a managed hosting company who provides a variety of solutions from virtual private/cloud servers to dedicated servers to complex clusters for clients worldwide. We have a very strong focus on providing fast, accurate, and personal customer service. We were recently ranked the #254 fastest growing private company in the United States and #11 in Chicago by INC magazine: http://www.inc.com/inc5000/profile/wiredtree

We're looking for other geeks like us who run Linux at home and enjoy problem solving and optimizing/automating/debugging systems. We're an all Linux shop so we're looking for someone with extensive Linux system administration experience through the command line. If you booted off a Linux Live CD once, you're probably not the person we're looking for. If you still run Gentoo, welcome! Seriously though, you need to understand Linux well, understand the commands, know the directory layout and where logs and config files are (we're going to ask you when you apply).

What else should you know? Basic TCP/IP networking and how to configure it on Linux systems. It's OK if you don't know all the details of Internet routing, that's something we can teach you. You should have some basic scripting skills in Bash, Python, PHP, Perl. If you are not hacker at any of those languages, it's definitely OK, but you should at least be able to understand and follow at a basic level as to what they are doing. Bonus points if you are a sed/awk/xargs wizard.

You should also understand the basic of x86 hardware and how it works. You'll be needed to repair and build rackmount servers from time to time, and while we can teach you what you'll need to know about the specific hardware we use, you'll need a good working knowledge to begin with. Build your own PC before, great. Build your own home SAN? Even better!

Let's get personal! We're looking for highly motivated, positive people who have great logic and problem solving skills. Excellent, spoken and written English is a must! We have clients from all over the world in nearly every country, so if you speak a second language, great!

What will you be doing? You will be a member of the WT support team, the backbone of our company. Day to day you'll be helping our clients with a variety of issues, including troubleshooting server software issues, repairing services which have failed, investigating abuse and security violations, provisioning servers, fielding phone calls from clients, optimizing server configurations, building servers, swapping out failed hardware, load balance a cluster from a client, etc. We perform a wide variety of work so there is plenty for you to flex your skills and learn as well.

What else would the ideal candidate know? The ideal candidate would be fluent in cPanel/WHM, Virtualization (Virtuozzo, OpenVZ, Xen), have previous datacenter experience with cabling and racking, have JunOS or IOS experience

What are the hours?

Shift1: The hours are 8AM to 8PM on 4 days on, 4 days off, 3 days on, 3 days off rotation. This will include some weekends and holidays.

Shift2: The hours are 8PM to 8AM on 4 days on, 4 days off, 3 days on, 3 days off rotation. This will include some weekends and holidays.

What do you get? This is a salary position, ~40k DOE, with opportunities for performance-based bonuses. Paid Vacation and Paid Time Off is also included. After a probationary period, we offer medical, dental, and life insurance options through BCBS with a POP125 plan. We also offer the CTA Transit Benefit Program, and a casual and fun work environment with free coffee/soda/tea/energy drinks, snacks.

Plus you get to join a company who cares about you and that you can grow with. There's a lot of potential here for motivated, hard working individuals to carve out their niche here as we expand. We reward positive contributions, forward-thinking, and smart work.

I want to apply! Great! Apply here now!
