Command Prompt, Inc. is looking for an intermediate systems
administrator and junior PostgreSQL administrator.

Command Prompt has provided PostgreSQL support, development, and hosting
since 1997. We are looking for another person to join our stellar group
of PostgreSQL systems experts.

We seek someone who has a deep knowledge of at least one UNIX-like
system, and who knows how to manage heterogeneous systems well. You can
demonstrate strong skills in basic systems administration. You have a
clear understanding of how to administer several systems that are mostly
the same, but that have small local differences. If you do not feel
comfortable saying, "I'm not familiar with that in your environment,"
then reading the man page, and coming back with a test plan for
deployment that will reveal problems with your strategy, this is not a
job for you. The ability to imagine, propose, test, and deliver
perfectly-integrated and easily-maintained solutions to users' problems
is the key to success in this position. You work well in a team: you
don't have to work 24 hours a day, because other people can always log
into any system you maintain and know where everything is, how it got
there, and how to add new things if they're needed.

You must know basic PostgreSQL administration, and understand how to set
up, operate, and tune Postgres in elementary ways, such as installing
from a package manager. You do not have to be a PostgreSQL guru, but if
you are, that is a bonus.

You have systems administration capability with shell scripts, as well
as either Perl or Python. As well as understanding (or quick to pick up)
technologies such as DRBD and LVM2. 

You have an interest in working on varied projects that use varied (and
sometimes legacy) technologies.

Command Prompt is a professional services company. You will be
interfacing with customers, therefore customer service and
professionalism is key.

Command Prompt employees usually work from their home offices. The
position normally requires minimal travel. For this position, the
successful candidate will be able to communicate effectively in English.
English as a spoken second language is fine as long as the written
skills are clear and effective.

This is a remote position and does not require residence in the United
States.

Applicants should send a resume to Joshua D. Drake,
jd(at)commandprompt(dot)com, with the words "intermediate administrator"
in the Subject line. Please include any text by way of a cover letter in
the body of your email and not as a separate attachment.
