As a Linux Systems Engineer 1, you will be responsible for designing, implementing, maintaining, and supporting complex components of the Linux Red Hat (RHEL) systems infrastructure.  You will assist with the support of existing and new Linux and open-source technologies.   Help support the design and architecture of new solutions in both physical and cloud-based environments.

Key Characteristics

  • Intellectual curiosity. This is paramount. People who require strict work boundaries and/or prefer to focus within a single technical domain are not a good fit.
  • We are looking for someone with passion and personality who loves a challenge. This person has strong engineering instincts and can sense risks while navigating towards solutions.
  • Automate everything mentality. Understanding how to integrate disparate technologies using vendor APIs and orchestration tools is paramount to the success of this candidate. This person needs to be interested in more than clicking a button; this person needs to be interested in creating the button that others click.
  • Ability to see the bigger picture. This person will understand the connections among all elements of a solution. They will help others see how their systems and related decisions connect to the bigger picture and affect success.
  • Excellent communication skills. This person is an active listener and fully engaged communicator. S/he will plug into projects and not wait for questions to be packaged up and delivered - but will actively participate in the ongoing dialogue of the project.
  • Comfortable with uncertainty (and the certainty of change). This person can anticipate change and is willing to embrace uncertainty - confidently knowing that they can adapt without losing their cool.
  • Execution orientated. This person loathes doing nothing and is capable of defining their path forward from a high-level vision.
