Full Time
A leading e-commerce company who dominate the online retailing market is looking for a junior to mid-level Linux sysadmin to join their innovative team of six. Since they are an online-only retailer, this business is built on its technology investment. Most of the UK population regularly place orders with their website which have become one of the UK's biggest e-commerce success stories since its launch in 1996!

Expanding your current skillset will make up a big part of the role. You will be exposed to scripting for automating activities. Throughout the role, you will be expected to self-learn, taking responsibility for your own improvement, with the support of the team. We envisage this role potentially heading in a DevOps direction if that is a career path you are interested in.

You will be involved in the creation and implementation of the internal development systems and tools which assist the deployment and maintenance of their products. Tasks will vary across infrastructure and system administration, Linux OS management and scripting. It will essentially be your responsibility to ensure that all these systems remain secure, resilient, supported and licensed.


You will have some experience as a Linux SysAdmin using any of Ubuntu, Centos, Redhat, Debian etc. are all fine. You should be comfortable building a Linux box and setting up an environment on top of this.

You will have some knnowledge of the use of virtualisation and its benefits, but commercial experience is not essential. Similarly, an interest in network concepts.

Having had some experience with any of Perl, Bash, Python or Shell Script is required. You should be able to write basic scripts, and understand their use for automation and optimisation.

Finally, but importantly, we are looking for a passionate SysAdmin, who has an engineering mind-set and shows interest in and out of work: reading blogs, setting up your own servers, engaging in your own projects.

Please apply through the job board or call me at Talent Point for an informal, confidential discussion.
