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. Ideally, you are familiar with
large-deployment tools such as puppet or cfengine.

Command Prompt employees usually work from their home offices. The
position normally requires minimal travel. For this position, the
successful candidate will live in or be willing to relocate to the
greater Portland, Oregon area, and will be able and willing sometimes
to travel to our data center in that metropolitan region. The position
requires the ability to lift systems for mounting in racks. Because of
the requirement of location, you must be legally eligible to work in
the United States. Command Prompt is an equal opportunity employer.

Applicants should send a resume to Andrew Sullivan,
ajs(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.
