   * Able to work with a team, as well as independently, on various projects
   * Able to document procedures in a reasonable manner (internal wiki)

Experience with any of these topics is a plus:
   * Developing tools in Python and Bash scripting languages
   * Network and Security Management (firewalls, SSH, VPN, DNS, DHCP)
   * Co-location, clustering, fault-tolerant systems
   * SAMBA, Windows Domains, Active Directory
   * Virtual Machines (Xen, VMWare, VirtualBox, UML)
