Linode, a market-leading global Cloud Hosting company, is seeking a Systems Administrator to join our newly established Linode Operations Center team.
In this role, you will be part of a 24/7 Operations Center responsible for monitoring, incident response, troubleshooting, break/fix, and the ongoing maintenance of Linode’s cloud infrastructure. You will be dedicated to providing a better customer experience by quickly detecting customer-impacting issues and mitigating problems.
We expect you to possess a wide breadth of experience with technology. A strong knowledge of Linux systems administration and automation will be critical to finding success in this role. You will be exposed to Linode’s entire infrastructure and will find opportunities to grow your technical knowledge through solving a wide range of challenges both independently and alongside specialists from other teams.
We’re looking for a special kind of candidate for this role. You’ll need a customer-centric focus to advocate for our users, strong communication skills to work across the organization, and a team player attitude to dig in and help maintain Linode’s commitment to our customers to have the most simple, affordable, and accessible cloud computing platform available.
To find success in this role, you are a natural problem solver and a motivated individual, someone who lives to put out fires before they start and continuously improves upon the operational posture our customers have come to love and expect. Most of all, you’re generally curious and thrive when presented with an opportunity to learn something new.
Outlined below are skills and technologies used by some of our teams. You don’t have to have experience with all of these, but you should have experience with some of them and an interest to learn the others:
