Systems / Network Administrator
February 7, 2007 1:16 PM

Looking for a sysadmin job with good karma? Kapor Enterprises, Inc. provides IT services to a number of high-profile non-profit groups in the San Francisco area that focus on technology and social good, including the Open Source Applications Foundation, the Level Playing Field Institute, and the Mitchell Kapor Foundation. Previously, KEI's offices have been home to such organizations as Creative Commons and the Mozilla Foundation.

KEI provides excellent employee benefits, a set of diverse and challenging projects and a genuinely pleasant place to work -- we strive to keep our work environment free of pointy-haired bosses, absurd deadlines and death-marches. Our SOMA offices are sunny, casual and dog-friendly, and are easy to get to from BART, Caltrain and MUNI. We also provide reimbursement for public transportation, parking, home Internet connections and wellness programs.

So, what about the position? Because of the technology focus of the non-profits KEI works with, we support a fairly large, heterogeneous network. That means that we need people who are good not just with Windows or Linux, but both, with some Mac OS X thrown in for good measure. Sure, there's desktop and server support, but we also tend to have a number of larger infrastructure projects going on at any time, and every day's a bit of a different mix of responsibilities.

Sound like your kind of thing? Take a look at the specifics, then drop us a line at Thanks!
