Systems Administrator (Senior) -(Linux, AWS, Puppet) - Growing .com! (Move towards Infrastructure manager)|
One of the UK's fastest growing E commerce firms are looking for an ambitious Linux Systems Administrator who has strong experience across a breadth of infrastructure to rapidly advance your career and move towards an Infrastructure manager position.
The company themselves are exceptional; having quadrupled in size over the last 2 years they are still growing at an insane rate which has meant a lot of project work; surrounding security, scalability of infrastructure and a move towards 'devops' - which means any Linux systems administrator coming in would get to work on a variety of projects and gain a wide range of skills!
The company are undergoing massive change to their infrastructure at the moment due to the scale of growth they have had/ are having so they are looking to increase the scalability of the infrastructure to this will mean working much more heavily with AWS. They are also looking to move towards automated deployments so the engineer coming in will have a chance to really lead a Devops implementation.
Given the wide remit of the role and the rate at which the company are growing - they do not need a unicorn who is an expert with all technologies but an ambitious and motivated individual who is driven to advance their career up the ladder towards management whilst staying hands on with technology and gain skills with technologies such as: AWS, Hadoop, chef/ Puppet and security best practice.
What are they looking for?
* Strong Linux systems Experience
* Strong knowledge around cloud infrastructure: (AWS, Azure, rackspace, Openstack)
* Knowledge of configuration management tools: (chef, puppet OR ansible)
* Best practice around security and networking
* Understanding of windows infrastructure
The company itself is an exceptional place to work; they put career growth at the centre of the role and massively appreciate the need to gain technically in the position - hence why there is a lot to be learnt if you are ambitious enough.
The role itself will, therefore, be very hands on as you will be leading many of the projects when it comes to the cloud, security and devops but you will be responsible for a growing team of SysAdmins, support engineers at the same time - reporting into the Head of IT Operations! There is no massive hierarchy in the company so you will not have any internal politics to deal with!
