System & Network Admin - Linux & Unix

Can you keep our employees connected and make sure that our internal IT tools are in top shape? Our Internal Infrastructure (Backend) team is looking for a Linux and Unix expert to be our System & Network Administrator. You will monitor and maintain our fast-growing, heterogeneous network to ensure that our office stays up and running and that everyone can get on with their work. You will identify, troubleshoot, solve and document network connectivity and performance issues and consider how we can optimize network speed and availability. Show off your detective skills as you search for and discover the reasons behind critical malfunctions in our server farms so that we can avoid the same problems happening again. You will also take on the planning, installation and configuration of server, storage and network components. We’re looking for someone who can adapt easily; you must be open to the possibility of working with Windows and working alongside a Windows-based team. We’re always considering how we can change things in order to improve so you will be encouraged to implement your own ideas for building up our infrastructure.

The ideal candidate:

  • Holds a bachelor’s degree or has completed an apprenticeship in Computer Science or a related field.
  • Has at least 4 years’ experience in network/system administration.
  • Has good knowledge of server, storage and network hardware.
  • Has hands-on experience with troubleshooting, maintenance and installation of Unix/Linux/BSD. Previous experience with Windows Server 2008R2/2012R2 would be a plus as you will be working with it but our team can help you as you learn.
  • Has excellent knowledge of Network, WiFi, DHCP, DNS, VPN, Firewall and network-related tools, e.g. anti-virus and software deployment.
  • Has advanced experience backing up system and user data.
  • Speaks English (our company language) fluently. German would be a plus.
  • Can start as soon as possible.
