Hanover, NH (Dartmouth): SysAdmin
« on: October 31, 2012, 03:51:22 pm »

Systems Administrator


You: An inspired sysadmin who has always felt constrained by the title.

Us: Thayer School of Engineering IT Department; so collaborative that we built this job description together.


What we do

Provide crazy good technology service:


Thayer School has a unique multidisciplinary approach to engineering education and our IT philosophy reflects this. Rather than just being back-room "crank turners", our Computing Services team interacts extensively with faculty, students, staff, and researchers. We go out of our way to spend time with our users, deliberately encouraging community members (often with cookies) to ask questions, explain their needs, and brainstorm solutions.


We work hard to solve problems, implement solutions, and allow Thayer School to make the fullest use of computing technology. We are driven and love a challenge.


How we do it

OS: mostly Linux, some Windows and a little bit of everything else

Virtualization: Yes please. VMware is where we’re at

Scripting: A whirl of Perl, PHP, Python, with a sprinkling of Bash and dash of VBS

Authentication: CAS, AD, Kerberos

Storage: NetApp, ZFS (Nexenta, FreeBSD, Solaris)

Protocols: TCP/IP, SNMP, NFS, SSH, Bonjour, VNC, CIFS, HTTP... (Get your Wireshark on)


What we expect and what you can expect

    We’ll ask for your opinion and expect you to have one
    The desire and ability to quickly learn new & old technologies
    The skills and chops to apply your knowledge building integrated systems
    Full participation within a small, collaborative, agile team
    Automation wherever possible so we can spend time on the fun stuff
    Building robust systems that won’t bug you off-hours
    Keeping up with the latest in tech and not being afraid of the bleeding edge
    Hands in all aspects of computing – full stack.
    Close collaboration with all members of the Thayer School community
    Enthusiasm for higher education; yours, ours, & everyone else's


Work environment

    Not in a basement, daylight will reach you
    Top-notch engineering happening all around you
    Thriving engineering school within a prestigious college
    Northern New England as your backyard
