My current contract is expiring soon, so I'm officially back on the job
market and looking for work. I currently live in Boston, but have good
experience working with companies in New York. I am willing to commute to
New York for two days every week. I am open to short term contract, long
term contract, and (potentially) full time positions.
My skillset is primarily Unix Systems Administration and MySQL Database
Administration. I also have good LDAP and LAMP development experience.
I'm also experienced in software like Apache, Nagios, Cacti, SpamAssassin,
RT, Amavis, etc. My *nix of choice is FreeBSD, but I'm also experienced
in RHEL/CentOS and other Linux flavors.
My latest task included a year-long project to migrate an entire data
center setup to a new provider and fix daily site outages. Systems at the
new data center were setup with common operating system installs,
centralized syslogging, accounting/authorization with LDAP, and solid
monitoring (nagios/cacti). A significant portion of the contract focused
on implementing better MySQL practices, which included performance tuning,
cleaning up old data, standardizing application users, auditing table
types, backups, and replication.
I also spent a lot of time working to clean up the code base, tune the
webserver configuration, setup proper revision control/code deployment,
and help implement caching strategies.
