Do you consider yourself an expert in Unix/Linux systems management?

Would you also be able to specify, network and configure hardware and Linux platforms for resilient, enterprise IT systems? If so, we invite you to apply for the post of Unix Systems Administrator at Oxford University Computing Services.

The Unix Systems Administrator will join a team responsible for many of the IT services critical to the operation of the University, including Identity and Access Management services; web hosting; email and collaboration services; standard and bespoke application hosting platforms for other parts of the Department; and substantial infrastructure and monitoring capabilities. The postholder will take a leading role in the development and management of new and existing systems and services.

The primary deployment platform used by the Systems Development and Support section is Debian GNU/Linux, and includes an extensive configuration and software management suite.
