Lead Linux System Administrator Ready to Interview

 Lead Linux Systems Administrator Philadelphia, PA 19123info@hireitpros.com | (484) 636-9233

Lead Linux Systems Administrator with an operations background, crossing over into development. Looking to join a tech-focused company where he can work with cloud technologies and cutting edge tools.

Skills: Linux, AIX, Windows, RHEL, NetApp,  Oracle 11g, Vagrant, Puppet, Tomcat, VMWare, Git, Gitlab, Jenkins, MongoDB, IaC, AWS, Ansible, Terraform, Docker, scripting in Ruby, Python and Go

Compensation Requirements: $160K

Location Requirements: Ideally would like to be in the northern or western suburbs of Philadelphia but also open to commuting to Center City for the right fit.

Interview Notes: Currently leading a team of 3 engineers supporting two environments which are primarily Java based. They use a lot of Tomcat, Mulesoft, MongoDB and work in an ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana). He is leading the initiative for a tech-agnostic cloud strategy that will allow the company not to be locked into services. He also does some work in VM and an on-site storage environment.

Working in an IaC (Infrastructure as Code) environment. Using Puppet, Ansible, Terraform, Docker. Has been keeping up with container orchestration and Kubernetes since it first came out (attending MeetUps, etc) so although he doesn’t have hands-on experience, he has theoretical knowledge and wants to stay up on new technologies.

Has an operations background, but crossing more and more into development. Scripting with Ruby, Python and recently some Go. Constantly working with the development team, collaborating and making design decisions. He describes himself as a problem solver through and through and is always looking to make improvements.

He is interested in joining a company with a technology focus, attracting people similar to himself, who are looking to learn more. A company with cloud-technology, working with tools like Terraform and Kubernetes would be the most interesting to him.

Education: Bachelor of Science, Information Technology
