Company Description

credativ U.S. is the North American branch of credativ, an international open source support company. At credativ U.S. we focus on support and services for open source based web operations technology. Primarily based on the east coast, we are a distributed team, working with clients in all different sectors, at home and abroad, helping them to get the most from their technology solutions.  

Job Description

We are looking for someone to help out part-time (10-15 hours per month) with some onsite sysadmin work in a data center outside Boston. Work will involve racking new hardware, investigating hardware failures, and working to configure and troubleshoot connectivity issues with remote operations teams. 

Much of the work can be done at flexible times to fit your schedule (off-hours/weekends), though we typically have a regular planning meeting and there will be times that we will need to coordinate with remote teams elsewhere in the U.S. and/or Europe, so some availability during early mornings will be necessary.


Specific skills you will need:

* Experienced in Unix / Linux console based administration
* Able to do typical network/firewall setups on console level
* Configure switches via ssh
* Have no issues fixing boot issues etc
* Familiar with gpg / security tools
* Solid communications skills, working with highly technical customers and team members.

You will be working on premise in the data center, therefore will need to be trustworthy and independent, i.e. able to perform the tasks after briefing, without remote help.
