The Team / Who We Are

We’re a team of technology centric individuals that want to reduce the burden on our clients by providing a homegrown front-to-back platform that streamlines their processes. We’re pretty good at it, and it shows. In 2018, we added 90 new employees globally, 120 new clients, and two new offices. In 2019, we are continuing that growth and working on new tech upgrades. We are also proud to say that the founders still roll up their sleeves and contribute code. Imagine working alongside the founders of a global company on some of our tech initiatives. 

What We Need

We are currently looking for a self-motivated, Linux Systems Administrator to join our team. In this role, you’ll be involved in progressively improving our existing Linux infrastructure and making recommendations on new technology. 

We have a number of different projects going on and that’s why we are looking for someone senior.

  • Analyze our current infrastructure and make automation recommendation
  • Reverse engineer software/hardware configurations and improve them
  • Act as a T2 SME and work directly with our clients on issues related to our platform, and connectivity issues

You are a great fit if

  • Experience with Linux system orchestration methodologies and technologies (automation, provisioning, configuration / updates, management, and monitoring - leveraging SaltStack and Foreman).
