ability to work in a multi-project environment, and who is eager to 
contribute to the growth and success of our company.

- Help prepare disaster recovery procedures

Send resume to jobs at corp.paltalk.com and put SysAdmin in subject line of 

As someone who this position will be filled to help me with most of the 
work around here (I am not the CTO, but the person brought on to "fix" adn 
administrate this stuff, and I answer to the CTO), this person whould be 
knowledgeable as well about Linux and FreeBSD, as well as have a grounding 
in Cisco switches and content load balancing modules. We also have several 
windows boxes used for databases, and would prefer that the person that we 
hire have a "best tool for the job" attitude, rather than a religious 
conviction in open source or any other type of software.

I can also say that despite the hard work, this company is wonderful to 
work for, very flexible and likes to have fun. A few weeks ago we went to 
the Mets game to sit in a corp. booth on the 3rd base line, and they had 
beer, hot dogs, sandwiches, and crackerjacks for us :)

The company is solvent, and will be around for some time to come, because 
they are smart with money as well. The development staff is fun and 
knowledgable, and the CTO is just one of the coolest people I've every 
worked with.
