Make the servers, desktops, and network at CareSet run smoothly. We have lots of Linux servers, Windows and Mac Desktops, Cisco Networking gear as well as Linux based firewalls. Your mission is to make all of those work together, to order new gear and build new servers from scratch. If the Wifi or Internet goes down, we would look to you. If the screen sharing software was not working, we would look to you. You should be comfortable with command-line scripting in either PHP or Python and willing to learn how to work with the other language as needed. You will also be responsible for working with our cloud-based resources.
You excel at troubleshooting IT systems, especially Unix related. You enjoy detailing how a network will work, how it is working and ensuring that it continues to work. You have experience managing a team, and coordinating with IT vendors. You will be responsible for windows clients, Firewalls, wifi, Apple TVs for screen sharing, but we are expecting you to use an IT support vendor to get these things done. We want you to personally own our *nix-based and cloud infrastructures. and You are interested in learning cybersecurity to the degree that you do not already know it. You are a jack-of-all-trades and willing to learn how to support new technology. You are a “Unix person” but are willing to work with PCs with help (and you will get help). You understand how to administer a MariaDB database, and can articulate how to handle InnoDB vs MyISAM vs Memory database engines (for instance). You are seeking a career opportunity that will give you the options to move into dev-ops, cybersecurity, data science, or continue into a more formal IT leadership role.
