Systems & Networks (IT) | Chicago, IL, USA
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.

- Must have experience with server / system virtualization and containerization technologies e.g., ProxMox, KVM, VMware.
- Nice to have experience with Kubernetes, and Docker.

- Some exposure to public cloud environments
- Solid Sys admin-grade scripting abilities (Bash, Sh, Perl, Python, or similar).

- It would also help if you have a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Computer Science or Engineering
