System administrator:

Command Prompt, Inc. is looking for an intermediate systems administrator and 
junior PostgreSQL administrator.

Command Prompt has provided PostgreSQL support, development, and hosting since 
1997. We are looking for another person to join our stellar group of PostgreSQL 
systems experts.

We seek someone who has a deep knowledge of at least one UNIX-like system, and 
who knows how to manage heterogeneous systems well. You can demonstrate strong 
skills in basic systems administration. You have a clear understanding of how 
to administer several systems that are mostly the same, but that have small 
local differences. If you do not feel comfortable saying, "I'm not familiar 
with that in your environment," then reading the man page, and coming back with 
a test plan for deployment that will reveal problems with your strategy, this 
is not a job for you. The ability to imagine, propose, test, and deliver 
perfectly-integrated and easily-maintained solutions to users' problems is the 
key to success in this position. You work well in a team: you don't have to 
work 24 hours a day, because other people can always log into any system you 
maintain and know where everything is, how it got there, and how to add new 
things if they're needed.

You must know basic PostgreSQL administration, and understand how to set up, 
operate, and tune Postgres in elementary ways, such as installing from a 
package manager. You do not have to be a PostgreSQL guru, but if you are, that 
is a bonus.

You have systems administration capability with shell scripts, as well as 
either Perl or Python. As well as understanding (or quick to pick up) 
technologies such as DRBD and LVM2.

You have an interest in working on varied projects that use varied (and 
sometimes legacy) technologies.

Experience with Ruby on Rails web framework is a plus.

Command Prompt is a professional services company. You will be interfacing with 
customers, therefore customer service and professionalism is key.

Command Prompt employees usually work from their home offices. The position 
normally requires minimal travel. For this position, the successful candidate 
will be able to communicate effectively in English. English as a spoken second 
language is fine as long as the written skills are clear and effective.

This is a remote position and does not require residence in the United States.

Applicants should send a resume to Angela Roberson, 
angela(at)commandprompt(dot)com, with the words "intermediate administrator" in 
the Subject line. Please include any text by way of a cover letter in the body 
of your email and not as a separate attachment.
