Job Description

Senior Systems Engineer (Linux / MySQL)
Paying circa £65k-£75k plus 15% bonus and industry leading benefits
Based in Hemel Hempstead

The Opportunity
Our client are a well known telecoms service provider with a market leading reputation for working environment, training and development prospects. Looking to boost their public Wi-Fi offering, this senior role sits above the NOC as point of technical escalation and also will contribute to the design and deployment of solutions in relation to Linux / MySQL based systems engineering with some DevOps within a network environment

This is an exciting time for the business, and you'll have a chance to play a real part when it comes to shaping how things will work on the core network providing cutting edge wireless / wi-fi solutions. It's a highly technical role but with a lot of variety so while Linux and MySQL will be key, you'll need a solid networking background and the position probably suits a blend of high end Linux Sys Admin / DevOps alongside network engineering.

What will you be involved with?

It's a varied role, and alongside final point of technical support you'll also be looking to take a lead when it comes to defining and maintaining the technical architecture including:

Unix / Linux (Centos, Ubuntu & Debian)
Infrastructure solutions ( HP, Dell, Microsoft)
Cloud infrastructure
Scripting (Bash, Python, Perl, SED, AWK)
Virtualisation (VM Ware & AWS)
Server administration
OAM (phpIPAM, Zabbix, SNMP, JSON, XML)
Storage (LVM, iSCSI, DEL, EMC)
WiFi (Cisco, Meraki, Ruckus)
Core IP networks
Excellent troubleshooting skills


In addition, you'll provide support to the pre-sales function and that will include helping out with technical knowledge for bids and tenders.

The Candidate:
It's a senior systems engineering role for a national ISP that are looking to vastly increase their public wi-fi offering. The role sits above a NOC, so prior 4th line system admin / support and engineering experience is what we need and you'll need to be able to point to in depth Linux systems engineering & admin, DevOps and also in depth network engineering (Likely a Cisco environment.)



The Package
Paying circa £65k-£75k (depending on experience)
Performance related bonus opportunities, KPI linked, 15% of basic salary
Contributory pension scheme, matched up to 6%
25 days' holiday each year plus 8 bank holidays
Your birthday off
Personal company funded medical plan
