Linux Systems Administrator DevOpsclosed
This job post is closed and the position is probably filled. Please do not apply.
\nDo you love making Linux systems run like clockwork? Do you dream about scripting manual administration tasks out of existence? Would you enjoy the challenge of making it a five minute process to spin up a new pre-configured box? Would you like to do all this whilst working for an internet-focused organisation that exists to improve the lives of others around the world? If so, you should think about joining us at mySociety.\n\nWhy you should work with us\n\nThere are plenty of reasons! http://www.mysociety.org/about/careers/\n\nWe are a friendly, user-focused software development team, and we get to work on stuff that matters. Our projects help people to get important things done - better government, citizen empowerment, fighting corruption. As well as our UK sites we’ve got strong working relationships with groups in Kenya, Chile, Uruguay, Taiwan, Malaysia, Australia and many other places.\n\nmySociety is a flexible, understanding employer. Most mySociety staff work remotely whilst still seeing each other face to face as often as we can. We work from home, co-working spaces, or small offices. Proposals for part time and flexible working are always welcome, and we have generous allowances for leave (both paid and unpaid) and conference or training days.\n\nOur project management style aims to minimise pain and distraction, and leave people to get on with doing great work, normally in small teams. We welcome people who are committed to making a difference, but we take work life balance very seriously and we celebrate the idea of quality, not quantity of working hours: out-of-hours work is occasionally required for this position, but always compensated with time off in lieu.\n\nWhat this role involves\n\nResponsibilities will include:\n\n\n* Initiating and managing infrastructure-wide projects such as OS upgrades\n\n* Taking charge of the security and integrity of our servers and data\n\n* Maintaining and testing our backups infrastructure\n\n* Improving the documentation of our server, development and deployment infrastructure\n\n* Identifying and resolving performance bottlenecks in application stacks based on Apache, Varnish, various dynamic programming languages and PostgreSQL/MySQL, including incoming and outgoing email\n\n* Helping developers build high performance applications\n\n* Keeping monitoring systems working and in good order\n\n* Updating our deployment process to make setting up new production servers and new development environments as close to a one-click configuration as possible\n\n* Speccing and procuring new hardware and/or virtual machines\n\n* Contributing to the development of our internal systems and processes\n\n\n\n\nLocation\n\nThe majority of our staff work from home. We have small clusters of people around Oxford, Bristol and London and would particularly like to hear from people based near those cities, but will accept applicants from anywhere in the United Kingdom. We only ask that you are willing to travel to other parts of the country to see your colleagues perhaps half a dozen times a year.\n\nWe expect you to be based in the UK and you need to have the right to work in this country (sorry, but we can’t offer help with visas or relocation expenses).\n\nSalary & Benefits\n\n£45-50,000 plus pension (3% employer contribution, 5% employee). We’re happy to consider part time working, pro rata. You will be a full PAYE employee.\n\nDeadlines and Dates\n\nThe application deadline is 10am on Friday 30th September and interviews will take place during the week commencing 10th October. We will aim to notify applicants of whether or not they will be invited to interview on Tuesday 4th October.\n\nApplication instructions\n\nPlease ensure that your covering letter includes your thoughts on what makes an excellent sysadmin, and what makes one who's not quite good enough.\n\nNo recruiters or agencies, please.
