Part time Assistant Systems Administrator

Duties include assisting with installations, maintenance, and upgrades to
workstations and servers, primarily running Linux. Candidates should have a
good technical aptitude and want to develop skills that go beyond those of
your average IT monkey. Prior employees in this position are currently in
career positions at UNC, Google, Apple, and Microsoft, among other

Prior experience working with Linux is of course required.

Examples of possible duties include:
   - answering technical questions about common Linux software

literacy levels

Ideal candidates probably already have experience:
   - administering Linux for themselves and family/friends
   - with common unix utilities (gnu software, latex, etc)
   - understanding common internet protocols and concepts (ssh, scp, rpc,
nmap, firewalls, etc)
   - writing simple scripts (bash, perl, python, or php)

The selected candidate will receive:
   - somewhat flexible hours to allow for outside committments (majority of
time worked is during business hours, but time off for classes, family,
etc. is fine)
   - a convenient on-campus work location
   - the ability to build his/her resume while making money
   - pay commensurate with experience

Aptitude and attitude matter as much as education and experience. If this
sounds appealing to you, please apply online at <
https://unc.peopleadmin.com/postings/7944>. Due to the training required to
get up to speed with our infrastructure and computing environment,
preference may be given to applicants who can commit to at least 8-12
months part-time.
