Red Hat Ireland are hiring! Our IS/IT folk (internal IT) have an immediate
requirement for the following:
Here is the standard spiel:
We're looking for smart people who much prefer to use Open Source
products in their daily work. The Help Desk team supports Red Hat
internally in a very wide range of services, from desktop system
administration, support, training, internal tools R&D (software
development), system management of over a 1000 Linux PCs, user
data backup company wide, and many other services.
Help Desk also leads Productivity Applications and we're building up a
formal service desk for the IT department in addition to that of the
IS department which we handle already. It is an extraordinairy
phase for the team, growing faster than anyone expected yet being in
control of our destiny. On any given day a team member will implement
existing and participate in designing new solutions, desktop SA, some
server SA, test/write some code/tools, represent the team at the business
level interfacing with other non-IS/IT groups, training, writing
documentation and, all together, making a distinctive personal
contribution to the development of what a (Linux) Help Desk should be.
Add to that: a practice of earning early responsibility for a global
piece of our business, the prospects of travel and working abroad,
performance based promotion, and via VTL (Virtual Team Lead)
exercising leadership and man management skills in a variety of areas.
I believe in the power of Open Source in the right hands (almost everyone
right ;-), and the application of those principles to not just software
but extending this to Services and how they are implemented.
It's a great time to join the team, we are getting large enough to allow
distinct specialization at a business and/or technical level on top
of a growing very high level of skill and experience due to our rapid
team development model.
Members of the current team include:
- server SysAdmins
- a Trainer specialising in the desktop and security
- Help Desk professionals
- Computer Science students, straight from college, with Linux support
- an Open Source researcher and programmer
- a migration specialist (Windows to Linux)
- an IT consultant who designed an Indian call centre
- Unix support specialists
If you feel you are up to the challenge - get in touch with me off-list
and we'll get the ball rolling.
