Условия работы

We're looking for a lead sysadmin for full time remote job

Skills required:

- high initiative

- make decisions fast. In sys team there're a lot of things happening daily, so we can't afford thinking about each for days, we don't have even hours, sys team lead should be able to:

* make correct decision fast

* find a person who can solve the problem fast

* make sure the problem is solved

- as a consequence of the above research and implementation of miscellaneous things should be also done fast. If you can make a fast solution within 1 hour and a good solution will take 10 hours you definitely go the 1st way, then you can wait a month and there's a chance the world will change and the better solution will not be needed at all or you'll need to rewrite all from scratch.

- perfectionism is none of expected skills. Pragmatism is expected very much

- ability to do things the lean way. Nobody needs it now = nobody will do it now

- still the quality of the decisions/researches and implementations is required. Lead sysadmin is to guarantee this.

- ability to convince a sysadmin that some job should be done and it should be done soon even if he doesn't want to do it. Or do the job yourself.

- ability to speak English fluently

Scope of responsibilities:

- report to CTO/CEO

- providing high uptime (there will be a monthly achievement based on this)

- handling incoming requests from customers in a timely manner (e.g. any email during working hours should be replied within an hour)

- handling manual and automated emergency alerts (emails, messages in irc from bot, calls) - few incidents each month

- planning maintenances together with admins (customers should know in advance if we expect any downtime or higher warnings ratio)

- short-term planning: daily important things

- long-term planning: quarterly goals

- coordinate communication with technical partners

- coordinate successful work with development team

- configuring integration with existing and new service providers, e.g. phone.com / pingdom / twilio
