Full-time Linux Systems Administrator

at vinay_sripathy in Connecticut

Role : - Linux Systems Administrator (SysAdmin)

Client : -  Bridge Water

Location : Westport, Connecticut

Client:Persistent Systems Inc/Bridge Water Job Description ? Linux

Job Description:

Linux Systems Administrator (SysAdmin) who will serve as second/third level
support. Candidates should have in-depth, hands-on

experience of the Linux OS - specifically RHEL 5, 6 (7 is a plus), Red Hat
Satellite, and source code management (SVN, Git). Additionally, they

should be familiar with scripting, i.e. bash and python, ruby or perl ? not
just running manual commands off a KB ? and able to run, maintain, and

write scripts. Experience with configuration management systems like
CFEngine, Chef, or Centrify. VMware vSphere, and/ or aws is a plus.

Experience with infrastructure automation and orchestration.


The position is for an operational (run) group. SysAdmins will respond to
incidents and as well as handle support requests for a variety of

technologies related to our Linux service.

As a queue owner, SysAdmins will be responsible for the general health of the
queue (resolving tickets, identifying trends, finding the

technical cause of problems) as well as recommending process/ system changes
to eliminate incoming workload, optimizing team

process, and escalating where appropriate.

SysAdmins will also have project responsibilities (i.e. executing some of the
improvements identified by them or others on the team) and

will own small projects within their respective area.

The position is for a primary day shift (8-10 hours per day). Participation
in a team 24x7 weekly rotation is part of the role. More extended

off-shift time may be needed but these would be planned significantly in
advance, and generally associated with project work where

maintenance windows need to be observed.

This is not a low level position. The person will need a deep understanding
of their respective area. But this is also a hands-on

operations position. Engineers that only want to do projects and/or design
and architect solutions will not be happy with this role.


Break/Fix, Provisioning & Decom, Patching, Migrations, Documentation

Analyzing, troubleshooting and resolving system OS, software, and performance

At least 5+ years of experience in relevant technologies
