> Watsonville, San Jose, Mountain View, Fremont, Millbrae, Emeryville, 
> San Ramon, Sacramento, Petaluma, Sonoma, Sacramento, Fresno, Riverside 
> and Phoenix.  Each site consists minimally of a linux based firewall, 
> main linux application server, and client PCs, typically running 
> Windows, and printers shared to all.  Some sites have mulitple servers 
> (web,email,pcbackup,fax,etc) and as many as 80 client PCs.
> There's a large assortment of equipment (CNC, RF handhelds, label 
> printers, timeclocks,etc) and technologies (30+ years of custom 
> solutions) deployed as I'm essentially the contracted IT department 
> for these companies.  You'll need to be sufficiently familiar and

> vmware, kvm, openvpn, iptables, cups, samba, laserjets, lineprinters, 
> networking, cron and scheduled tasks, ssh, vnc, command line tools, 
> bash, wsh, and more.  I once put a list together of 100 tech buzz 
> words* that I deal with weekly, so there's plenty of opportunity to 
> get involved with all sorts of things.
> Your time will be re-billed, so diligent time keeping is required.  
> This is a long term position (3+ years anyway) that I'd like to fill 
> before April and I expect to interview qualified prospects multiple 
> times to confirm capability and compatibility. Compensation open and 
> competitive based on experience.
> Please email me off-list at job at salesinq.com if you're interested.  
> Please ask relevant questions on-list so others can benefit from the 
> responses.
