Reporting to the Director of Technical Operations, the Technical Operations Developer is tasked with developing operational tools for managing and operating our client facing and internal technical environments. You’ll need to work closely with the application and infrastructure development teams to quickly understand, install and support all related technology and infrastructure. We are small and move quickly. The technology you deal with today likely won’t be the same you’re working with tomorrow. The ideal candidate will have:
Athletes' Performance/Core Performance conducts post-offer Background Check
- 3 to 5 years experience working with Linux. Preferably RedHat-based OSs (Fedora, CentOS, etc).
- Production support experience, comfortable digging through log files, troubleshooting scripts
- Some linux based development and scripting experience, doesn’t matter of you prefer bash, perl, python or even php, but you have to be able to write some sort of functional code
- Working knowledge of Cisco networking gear and network configurations in a linux environment
- Experience with virtualization including VMWare and Amazon Web Services
- Working knowledge of Apache configuration, MySQL replication, and environment optimization.
- Efficiency. We have a small team to manage an awful lot of gear. Ability to move around the shell quickly and efficiently is a MUST
- Extras! We appreciate all of your skills. Plusses are monitoring tools like Nagios, Cacti, MRTG, SAN/NAS experience, VoIP systems, certifications (MS, Cisco, RH, etc). If you can turn a wrench, that’s useful too
- Flexibility. Working off-hours and on-call support is part of the job. You’ve got to be ready to help out 24x7.
- The other usual suspects. You must be able to lift a mid-60s VW Beetle engine (if you can do 50lbs, that’s just fine), be able to concisely relay communications to folks both in speech and in writing, be organized and overall have a great attitude. Nobody likes negative people.
- Education. We’re much more interested in experience, passion and desire than we are in school. DOE M/F/D/V
