This is an outstanding opportunity to join a great team and be exposed to a wide variety of cutting-edge technology and challenging projects. Safari Books Online is a 12 year old joint venture between O’Reilly Media and the Pearson Technology Group.
Based in our Boston office you will initially provide internal support to all of our employees and locations. We have added significantly to our staff in recent months and have an aggressive project roadmap for the upcoming year so we will need your assistance in configuring and deploying machines, troubleshooting and providing support across the enterprise, documenting processes and systems, helping system administrators, and ordering technology products to keep up with our growth and project demands.
You will also have the opportunity to expand and strengthen your skill set including system administration duties, working with back-ups and storage, VMware, switches, security, production monitoring, performance tuning and more. Our environment includes Mac OS, Linux (Ubuntu, CentOS), Windows 7 laptops and workstations, data warehousing, and various software from multiple vendors.
We also work with Nagios, Munin, Splunk, DNS, SSL, SSH, SNMP, OVPN, and other protocols as well as Python and Bash scripting so exposure in some of these areas would be a nice plus.
Our team is a group of life-long learners that is not married to a particular technology, methodology or job description, instead we encourage innovation, exploring the latest technology for elegant, efficient solutions, and tackling and solving all technical challenges. If this sounds like an environment and role in which you would thrive then please submit your resume for consideration.
