About the company

Flight Data Systems is an aerospace products and services organisation focusing on flight data recorders (black boxes) and related data services. We are a multinational company with 60 staff across offices in the UK, USA and Australia.

From an I.T. perspective, we maintain a virtualised infrastructure consisting of 40-60 VMs running on three hosts in the UK, US and Australian offices of which approximately 60-70% are Linux based (Ubuntu) with the rest various flavours of Windows or Windows Server, so the ideal candidate would be ideally strong in Linux but have a level of experience with Windows Server systems.

Currently I.T. within our company is handled by both external consultants as well as shared between internal staff; the Linux systems administrator would be the first dedicated full time role to act as a concentration point for all I.T related tasks and responsibilities.

Duties of the Linux Systems Administrator:

* Perform pro-active monitoring and maintenance of virtualised server systems based in each continent.
* Ensure continual and reliable operation of their tape-based backup archival systems including reconstruction and regular audit.
* Manage and liaise with external subject matter experts/contractors as required (network, security, VOIP etc)
* Support infrastructure requirements of in-house ERP and other be-spoke engineering applications
* Minor support of end users of the I.T. systems
* Creation and maintenance of I.T. 'as-built' documentation and evolve management procedures as well as internal wiki style helpdesk or document manager
* Propose and deploy new equipment, both server and network based as well as end user desktop PCs
* Creation and maintenance of user login and email accounts
* Track software usage and software license compliance/management

Required experience and skills include:

* VMWare Virtualisation (ESXi)
* Linux Kernel and LAMP Stack Maintenance
* Linux (Bash) Shell Scripting
* Log servers
* Ethernet Networking including various protocols such as DHCP, FTP, HTTPS
* Microsoft Windows Desktop and Windows Server/Active Directory
* Ability to cope with fast paced role, able to pick up new concepts quickly.
* Ability to work autonomously and monitor own productivity with ERP based time card system
* Excellent grasp of both written and spoken English
* Minimum 5 years in a comparable role

Although based in the UK, this position will support personnel and infrastructure in our USA and Australian offices, so certain availability will be expected outside of normal business hours (with appropriate compensation or time in lieu).

Linux Systems Administrator Benefits:

* 25 days holidays each year plus Bank Holidays
