I am looking to hire a FreeBSD system administrator, with BSD
Associate or better experience, for long-term contract work.
My team operates a small number of Network Security Monitoring (NSM)
sensors running FreeBSD and open source tools. We plan to expand our
sensor deployment from the low double digits to the high double
digits, and perhaps the low triple digits.
The ideal candidate will be able to examine our current deployment and
suggest improvements for our next generation NSM platform.
He or she will implement a simplified software installation process,
with the idea that the NSM platform should be an in-house "appliance."
He or she must be able to properly select, configure, test, and
maintain software deployed on FreeBSD.
The ideal candidate has experience administering large numbers of
FreeBSD systems, with emphasis on keeping software up-to-date in a
consistent and repeatable manner.
Although you will be working within the security team, the candidate
does not need security experience. We are looking for system
administration experience, although familiarity with open source
security tools is a plus. We want a professional sys admin, rather
than a security professional.
The candidate does not need to be located in the United States, but he
or she must be fluent in English and comfortable working with a
geographically distributed team. Preference will be given to
qualified candidates who are willing to work in Cincinnati, Ohio (US).
If you are interested, please reply with your resume.
