> 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
> comfortable diagnosing and fixing problems with linux, windows,
> 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.
