Exciting New Opportunity!

Our client is a small IT consulting company that has recently formed a partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) that has created the need to rapidly grow the engineering team.  Part of this explosive growth has spun off a new group, the Managed Cloud Team and that team is looking for a Linux Systems Administrator. 


The Linux Systems Administrator will join a relatively new Managed Cloud Team and be a key member of the group that is supporting client environments in the AWS cloud.  The customer base is comprised of small to medium sized business, typically with 500 employees or less.  By the time they get to the Managed Cloud Team the Engineering team, made up by Linux Ninjas, will have created a LAMP stack and moved them into the Amazon cloud.  The Linux Systems Administrator should have 3+ years of Linux administration (Red Hat and CentOS ideal but others will be considered) and ideally 1+ year of either administering or deploying a LAMP stack.  This is not a programming position but advanced scripting in PHP would go a long way. 

The company offers an unbelievable opportunity.  AWS is projected to be one of the hottest technologies over the next 10 years and you will be on the forefront.  They will pay for training and certifications and even give bonuses upon completion of certifications.  If you live within 50 miles of the office in Burlington, you can even work from home up to 3 days per week.  In addition, they pay 100% of health insurance costs for all employees so there is no out of pocket expenses.  They have a fun office with a fully stocked beer fridge and snack cabinet.  This truly is a great place to work.


If you are a Linux Systems Administrator with 3+ years of experience and solid knowledge of the LAMP stack coupled with a passion for technology this may be a dream job for you.  Please call one of our IT Recruiters for more information and immediate consideration.  We can be reached at or 781-938-7950.
