Development Opening: Junior System Administrator

We are looking for a Junior System Administrator to assist in maintaining our busy platform. We are an award-winning mobile billing and messaging aggregator, headquartered in Plymouth, England, and if you are a bright, technical and creative individual we want to hear from you.

You will have a broad interest in LAMP, preferably in a commercial setting, and be comfortable identifying and solving technical issues across a range of software and hardware contexts.

You will have an ambition to code standards-compliant PHP and other languages, and will have little trouble extending your skill set to include new technologies such as Node.js, Riak (or other “NoSQL” databases), and configuration management tools such as Puppet and Chef. You will at least have a familiarity with the concepts behind those technologies.

Immediate duties include monitoring and maintaining our existing servers, installing and configuring new software, provisioning new resources, identifying bottlenecks, and creatively and diligently exploring and applying effective solutions.

There may be some out-of-hours and weekend cover work to ensure our platform works 24/7.

Do you think you are the right fit for this position? Please send your CV, with a covering letter, to jobs@txtnation.com letting us know why you think you’re the ideal candidate. CVs without a covering letter may not be processed.
