Do you like to show-off your skills by administrating servers and dabbling in some code at the same time? Do you like to shutdown hackers with authority? Do you enjoy seeing your server's uptime measured in months rather days? Cynch needs to add some "jack-of-all trade" gurus to help our customer's manage their tech. We're looking for energetic people who have a passion for figuring out problems, preventing downtime, and impressing customers. So, are you a good fit?
* Linux admin (you gotta know how to use Linux -- not just how to SSH into a box)
* Windows admin (unfortunately Active Directory lives everywhere)
* Virtualization (you should be able to do more than just spell VMWare and LVM)
* Scripting (Bash and PowerShell should be your friend, not your enemy)
* Coding (Don't blame the PHP and Java code -- fix it)
* Databases (make MySQL run like a top)
* Panels (Plesk and cPanel)
* Networking (have you ever heard of BIND and Cisco? Hopefully, you p0wn them)
If this sounds like you and you can come to work on time, then give us a call.
