Senior Linux System Administrator
* Is Linux System Administration the true love of your life?
* Is your RDBMS knowledge bigger that the databases you are used to using?
* Looking to work for the fastest growing company in this particular market?
Are you someone who finds that Linux System Administration comes to them as naturally as breathing? If so, then this role as Senior Linux System Administrator could be exactly what you are looking for. Working for the UK's fastest growing company in their market, a company who are already a market leader, you join a team working with high volume and high availability RDBM systems. This role as Senior Linux System Administrator will also require you to manage web services using Apache with Mod_Perl, Nginx, Tomcat and PHP, all while scripting with your favourite flavour from Bash, Perl or Python.
What this role would mean for you:
* The opportunity to join a strong technical team as a Senior Linux System Administrator, a team dedicated to ensuring the company runs as smoothly as possible
* Working so closely with Linux that you couldn't tell where you ended and the OS began
* Utilising your scripting ability to link with their existing development to create a well-rounded and finely-tuned system
* A package of up to £50,000 plus benefits, including a cycle-to-work scheme and life cover, for a company based a stone's throw from Farnborough in Hampshire
What you need for this role:
* Linux system knowledge bordering on the encyclopaedic- that you will use daily
* Experience of dealing with high volume RDBMS, ideally MySQL, is essential to this role
* Scripting experience with Perl, Python or Bash- you don't have to have all three, though that would be excellent
* Web services management with Apache- and I don't mean the attack helicopter!
Other desirable skills:
* Prior knowledge of AWS would be a boon, and you will get the chance to build on this knowledge
* If you have worked with Percona MySQL HA solution or similar, you will certainly have an edge on the competition
Does this sound like the perfect job? Then apply away- I'm waiting to hear from you
