Do you know how difficult it is to find good SAs lately ?

We have several openings for mid- and senior-level Unix sysadmins. We need
people who really *know* (or at least suspect they know) that they're good
compared to the rest of the world.

Surprisingly this is a hard requirement to fill.

BSD experience is a definite thumbs-up (I'm a big NetBSD fan but I don't
mind working with FreeBSD and neither should you if you're interested).

High-uptime, large networks, good perl/sh skills, good communication
skills, most importantly you need to have that love of sysadmin that makes
you a good one.

If you love really understanding how it all works, and still want to be an
SA after figuring it all out, then we want you.

Official job description attached below. If you're interested drop me an
email with a resume. If you know someone who might be interested drop
*them* an email to drop me an email with a resume. Even if you don't meet
the requirements but you think you're good, drop me a resume anyway, we'll
know you when we interview you.
