This isn't BSD-specific (having knowledge of multiple platforms is
necessary) but I think the skills required exist on this list.  Here

My team (professional services, network test automation) at Spirent
Communications is looking to fill a full-time position. Initially,
there will be an on-site 1-year engagement in Middletown, NJ.  After
that engagement, you'd be part of a professional services team that
travels about 25%

The job consists of working directly with customers to automate
testing their network environments (usually test labs).  We work with
NEMs like Cisco and Juniper, and Service Providers like Deutsche
Telekom, SFR and Verizon.

The job requires:
  - insatiable curiosity
  - patience with customers and coworkers (don't be a jerk)
  - (often cross-cultural) communication skills (don't be a jerk in
languages other than english)
  - creative problem-solving
  - facility with general programming. We use Tcl heavily, but not exclusively.
  - desire to do technical as well as project management type tasks
  - a good sense of humor
  - a tolerance for Microsoft technologies in addition to non-MS stuff.
  - a love of travel and a tolerance for airport shenanigans (25% is a
lot, but it's not like you travel every week)

Big Pluses:
  - Solid protocol knowledge (at all layers)
  - familiarity with test methodologies

A big potential perk is that my team is mostly "work from home".
After the 1 year on-site gig, you'd probably be working from home as
