  • Server hardware: Dell, HP, Supermicro
  • Bash scripting and use of GIT/Ansible
  • Excellent problem-solving skills, 'thinking on your feet'
  • Office 365/Teams support
  • Good understanding of network switching and routing (e.g., IP Routing, BGP EVPN)
  • Excellent documentation skills

 

Nice to have skills:

  • MySQL

  • Backup or D2D backup systems (Veeam/Arcserve)
  • Strong understanding of networks, including Cisco and Juniper hardware
  • Knowledge of BGP and routing protocols
  • Firewalling skills and understanding
