    * Description:

      Very well funded startup seeking Senior System Administrator

      Note: read the submission requirements before applying.

      Root Markets is a new startup looking to grow to 40+ people by the end of the year (and we've got the cash to do it). In my 10 years in the startup business, I've never seen a business model like this before. There will be a public announcement in mid October.

      We are looking for a senior system administrator. You will be responsible for:
          o maintaining all servers (unix, linux)
          o maintaining all desktop systems (windows, macs)
          o planning IT infrastructure
          o working with engineering on server needs 

      You will be the sole administrator in the near term, although it is likely that we’ll hire a second person within 4-6 months and possibly a third in 12 months. You would have sole responsibility for the IT operations and must be comfortable handling a variety of tasks and setting appropriate prioritizations.

      Submission Requirements:
          o Local candidates only. No relocation.
          o Send your salary requirements and resume.
          o The resume must be a Word or PDF document with your full name in the document name (e.g. “resume.doc” will be ignored, “Jon Smith.doc” or “janegordon.doc” will be accepted). 

      Technology keywords:
      linux, unix, solaris, nagios, NetSaint, DLT, bandwidth, capacity, 24/7, 24/7/365, pager, colo, co-lo, TCP/IP, OS, MTF, Merlin PBX

      Industry keywords: (intriguing cross of industries, huh?)
      finance, securities, market, trading, hedge fund, spread
      advertising, cpa, cpm, ad server, adserver

    * Required Skills:

          o 7+ years of system administration
          o knowledge of one or more types of Linux and/or Unix
          o experience with high performance 24/7 systems (ideally a trading platform and/or adservers)
          o experience maintaining windows desktops
          o experience with capacity planning
          o experience with tape backup systems
          o experience with Nagios
          o experience with firewalls, routers, etc.
          o experience with co-located as well as in house servers
          o experience running your own email server
          o experience maintaining macs a plus
          o experience with Merlin PBX a plus 

    * Location:

          New York City, NY
