Have you got a passion for open source technologies? Are you looking to work more hands on with cloud technologies? Are you looking to work for an organisation who will offer you true career opportunities?
If the answer to any of these is yes, then I may have the right role for you!

You have the opportunity to work for a global organisation who aim to be on the cutting edge of technology. They have a broad managed service offering but are firmly invested in Cloud technologies. They are undergoing a period of growth and are proud to be adding to their Unix team. As an organisation, they value people with unique skills and who are passionate about their career growth. This means that this role will offer you true progression as they enhance your skills.

When you are in this role, you will be acting as an escalation point for varied and in depth issues. It is important to note that you will not just be reactive in this position but you will be playing an important role in the technical projects for clients moving forward. You will be given the chance to fully embrace your knowledge of Unix, Linux or other flavours. This isn't a standard role just being on the phones, you will be getting stuck in to some complex technical issues that have been raised through other teams and sharing that knowledge with other people and teams, while working with other members to upskill them and share knowledge in an open environment, giving you exposure to broader skills and knowledge.

This role is a Unix Engineer role, as such you will have had experience working hands on with Unix (ideally RedHat) in a role like a DevOps Engineer, Linux/Unix Infrastructure Engineer or a Unix Systems Administrator. Some of the other knowledge that it would be nice to have is -
- Understanding of backup technologies
- Understanding of networks
- A passion for technology and Open Source technologies
- A love of the cloud and cloud solutions like AWS
- A drive to learn as much as you can

On top of the opportunity for a great role in an organisation where you can grow your skills, you will be rewarded with the following -
* £50,000 - £60,000 salary (negotiable for the perfect person )
* 25 days annual leave
* 5 days study leave
* Amazing training
* ½ a day off on your birthday
* A day off to some charity work

If you've got solid Unix experience and a passion for open source technologies, then I'd love to speak with you about this role.
