Freelance Linux System Administrator
We are looking for a qualified, driven and fully independent freelancer to join our team. Currently all our Linux Administration is being handled by one very capable individual, but to ensure availability and extra knowledge / redundancy, we'd like to add a second System Administrator to our small, but growing team on a steady freelance basis.
You will be responsible for working closely with our team to ensure the availability, reliability and performance of several CentOS, NGinx, PHP-FPM, Percona (MySQL) cloud based systems we have hosted at Linode.com. These systems are currently being used for web development and production hosting of a high traffic WordPress website.
- Expert level Linux Administration with specific experience with CentOS, as well as engineering and maintaining performance tuned systems.
- Expert level knowledge with high performance web servers with specific experience with NGinx and PHP-FPM.
- Expert level knowledge with MySQL databases with specific experience with Percona.
- Thorough understanding of GIT versioning (We host our repositories at Beanstalk.com) and ability to suggest and assist in implementing good development protocols.
- Excellent organization and ability to maintain solid and consistent communication. (Must have a solid proficiency of conversational and written English)
We are looking for honest, loyal candidates working independently for an ongoing, long term professional freelance relationship. We anticipate approximately 25+ hours a month, with some weeks requiring more time and others much less so. If all goes well in the first few weeks, this project will be redeveloped into an ongoing maintenance contract.
Agencies and work brokers will be denied. We are strictly considering individual freelancers only.
Please write us an introduction letter with specific detail as to your experience and knowledge, as well as why you think we should consider you above other candidates applying for this position.
Thank you and we look forward in hearing from you!
