Are you a Systems Administrator with experience in hosting? Would you like a strategic role in delivering hosting as a premium product?

This Systems Administrator job is based in Belfast. The job comes with a salary of £38k – £45k per annum depending on experience including pension, flexitime, free car parking and more.

Who is the company?

From complex systems integration and bespoke development to fluid responsive websites combined with integrated digital marketing campaigns, my client has the creativity and technical expertise to deliver a full range of digital services. Each project will flow from inception to completion, with strong ideas, inspiring web designs, and a deep-rooted codebase, all supported by cohesive digital marketing strategies.

Corvus has been working exclusively with this digital agency for nearly five years and we have placed nearly twenty digital professionals in that time. The feedback from everyone we have placed has been extremely high and the majority ended up staying for the long term. This is a company that invests heavily in their staff which has created one of the top working environments in the industry.

What exactly does this job entail?

The job is a diverse one, utilising your excellent technical skills and competence with Windows Server environments, applications, and Linux/UNIX. You will need to have at least 5 years’ experience in a similar role with an ISP or ecommerce business, a large NOC or other such company associated with networking.

We are seeking a Senior Systems Administrator who has the technical skills the support and improve on the existing infrastructure and design and implement cloud-based technologies for business benefit. You need to be able to recommend system configurations to help improve performance monitoring and tuning. You will be responsible for resolving all technical IT infrastructure issues and taking ownership of cross functional problems. You will also liaise with, manage and direct third parties to provide IT infrastructure systems to ensure delivery to agreed contracts.

Since my client is involved with web hosting, the senior systems administrator will deal with security breaches and attacks when they happen. In fact, my client is putting together a new hosting strategy to offer this as a premium product for customers and the successful candidate will assist with this.

What skills are essential to be considered for this job?

You will need a minimum of 4 years’ experience in a similar role with an ISP or ecommerce business, a large NOC or other such company associated with networking. You will need excellent technical competence with Windows Server environments and applications including Windows Server 2008.

A high level of understanding of DNS combined with a good understanding of domain administration and domain transfers with various gTLDS and ccTLDs is needed along with experience in the management of backup systems and developing disaster recovery plans. You will need to be competent in firewall, IIS 8+ and LAMP stack administration. You will also need to have worked with virtualised environments such as Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware.

What are the desired skills?

We would be very keen to chat to systems administrators with experience with Microsoft Azure’s cloud services or Amazon AWS platform-as-a-service, particularly Elastic Beanstalk.
