Job Description

OptionMetrics is seeking a Junior Linux Administrator to join our IT Operations team. You will be responsible for day-to-day administration of the server/network infrastructure and related systems, utilizing cloud provisioning tools, and automating tasks using a scheduler. You'll be highly detail-oriented and comfortable working independently as well as within a team. You'll be learning about and working extensively with Linux, scripting, and AWS. We're small, nimble, casual (no suits – shoes optional), and passionate about our mission and the projects we create. Since we are self-funded and profitable (no VC's!), we can afford to take the long view, emphasizing quality over expediency in all we do. The Systems Engineer will be required to work from 2:00pm – 9:30pm every third month. 

What You’ll Do:

  • Monitor systems and applications including Linux, Windows, and AWS
  • Deploy applications across a multitude of servers and operating systems hosted on a cloud service
  • Use Bash and Python scripting to automate processes
  • Monitor Prod/Test/Dev environments for failures and ensure smooth operations
  • Work with Hashicorp Tech Stack/TeamCity and Amazon Web Services

Skills You’ll Need:

  • 1 year of Linux administration/engineering experience at an internship or on the job
  • 1 year of scripting experience on Linux
  • Strong understanding of IT infrastructure and best practices
  • Familiarity with writing SQL queries to troubleshoot data issues
  • Ability to work independently in a high-pressure environment 
  • Bachelor's degree required. Any certifications are a plus.
  • Ability to communicate effectively with all levels of employees, vendors, and customers
  • Experience working in a team-oriented, collaborative environment

Nice to Haves:

  • Some Windows server Administration
  • Experience handling a Linux server
  • Understanding of FTP management and troubleshooting

What We Offer:

  • A collaborative environment where everyone's input makes a difference
  • Paid time off: Vacation, Personal, Sick days, and Holidays
  • Pre-tax commuter benefits (NJT, MTA, etc.) and 401k plan offered
  • Full medical and dental insurance coverage
  • A bright, open office in Midtown Manhattan near Columbus Circle and steps from Central Park with a great view of Times Square
  • The usual drinks and snacks (and we're still small enough to celebrate everyone's birthday with cake!)

OptionMetrics began 20 years ago with the goal of becoming the world's most trusted provider of financial information and research derived from the option markets. Today, our data and analytics models are used in over 350 investment banks, hedge funds, asset managers, and academic institutions worldwide.
