We are a Linux shop both on the server side and the trader desktops.

# Installations of workstations on trading floors and in offices.

# Installations of servers and networking appliances in data centers sometimes requiring travel.

# Technologies of particular interest are:

-- bind,

-- Ansible,

-- Linux KVM,

-- Zabbix,

-- Google workplace collaboration and productivity tools.

# Scripting skills are primarily in bash and Python and occasionally SQL and Perl.

# Cybersecurity tooling includes 2FA, iptable rulesets, Malwarebytes, fail2ban, etc.

Occasional tasks include:

# Hardware maintenance.

# Large-scale buildouts sometimes requiring travel, both domestic and international.

# Installations of appliances such as printers, phones, televisions etc.
