Sr. System Administrator (Financial District)
San Francisco based AwesomeJar Consulting is seeking a Sr. System Administrator (7-10 years experience) to join its staff of technical gurus. AwesomeJar is a tech consulting company run by tech consultants who love what they do and excel at doing it. We understand work/life balance, have lived in the CTO level roles in past positions, and are widely seen as best of class within our technical circles. AwesomeJar is a small, flat organization, with tremendous potential to learn, grow, and seek advancement, while also having a direct effect on policy, decisions, and the direction of the company. This position reports directly to AwesomeJar's Director in the San Francisco office.
The Sr. System Administrator serves as a project manager and client relations representative as well as the technical lead on projects. As a Sr. System Administrator, you will organize, design, plan and improve systems and network administration. You will work directly with clients and AwesomeJar management to put together projects and manage them to completion. In addition, you will work with mid-tier support staff in our SF, Palo Alto, and New York offices to ensure they complete their tasks on time, and with great attention to detail. You must be able to manage projects from requirement specification, design, and development through to deployment.
Qualified applicants will have ample experience working with Microsoft Server (2008/2012) and Windows, Active Directory, Exchange/Office 365, SQL Server, Cisco switches and firewalls, SANs, Virtualization, Monitoring, and be comfortable working with OSX and Linux. Experience with Cybersecurity (UTM, IDS), Disaster Recovery & Backup strategies, Amazon Web Services, and/or Microsoft Azure is a plus. AwesomeJar System Administrators serve as technical jacks-of-all-trades in every environment that they touch. At AwesomeJar we get along well with users -- beyond the point that people are just idly willing to talk to us. AwesomeJar System Administrators get invited out to beers with users, go to Super Bowl parties, and meet people's families. They understand technology inside and out, and can speak with non-technical people about technical issues, without alienating them. In short, they need to be technically gifted and socially adept.
AwesomeJar wasn't built with the intent to make our founders rich. We aren't run by a bunch of senior executives who look to squeeze every last dime of profits from our clients and consultants. We offer extremely competitive compensation and benefits, and provide a highly open, honest, and fun work environment. If you're interested in finding out more about the position, send us a copy of your resume. We don't need a fancy, overly wordy, cover letter. Just let us know some of the main reasons you think you stand out from a run of the mill SysAdmin, and use the word "malleable" in a sentence. We look forward to hearing from you.
Compensation: $100K+ with full benefits and additional performance based incentives
Employment Type: full-time
