Linux Systems Administrator

Contract  |  £300 - £350  |  Greater London  |  Sutton

Linux  •  Infrastructure

We are in search of a strong Linux Systems Administrator for a very high profile data migration project - taking an existing prototype and putting it into production (into a single pipeline). Moving from a hybrid 'Disk / Tape' platform to a purely Disk based environment. 

The role would entail writing basic functions requiring continual management, optimising and improvement throughout the migrating process, including looking for faults / diagnosis. 

Background preferences include: 
- Prototype Scripting 
- System Administrator 
- mySQL database 
- Linux OpenSource environment 
- Scripting languages: Bash (Python/ Perl) 

The client is looking at moving quickly to fill this position as they are at a critical point in the project, and the interview process would likely to be just one stage.

The preferred candidate will have extensive experience using mySQL rather than Oracle. You must also be very comfortable writing basic functions in test.

This project is working towards a meaningful cause, so apply now to be part of this high-profile migration and make a difference now.

Please note that no terminology in this advert is intended to discriminate on the grounds of age, and we confirm that we will gladly accept applications from DevOps Engineers of any age for this role. LinuxRecruit are a leading open source specialist and provide services as an agency and an employment business.
