Systems Administrator
February 14, 2011 2:53 PM

Are you a "fixer"? Do you take great pleasure in a helping folks solve technology issues? Are you a technology omnivore who can work with anything from iOS to command-line linux?

We need your help.

Kapor Enterprises, Inc. supports a diverse group of non-profit and for-profit organizations, with offices in San Francisco's SoMA district. We're looking for a systems administrator who will be able to assist the various groups we support with a wide assortment of technology needs, from the simple to the complex, while maintaining high uptime on a small office network.

We're looking for someone who will immediately recognize:

cat /proc/mdstat
Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks ExecCGI
rsync –avzH
aptitude dist-upgrade
switchport trunk allowed vlan add

…but still be able to write up a quick, clear, well-written response on how to troubleshoot a problem someone's sent in to the helpdesk about setting up push e-mail on their new Android phone.

Things you should definitely know: Mac OS X, Active Directory, LAMP, basic hardware troubleshooting. It would be great if you had experience with: Zimbra, Xen, Ubuntu LTS or Debian, Nagios, DeployStudio, Drupal. We're looking for someone who's spent time working or managing a helpdesk or support center, and who also has been trusted with root.

We offer a competitive salary and great benefits. This is a full time, on-site position with on-call rotation. As this job requires the racking and unracking of servers, we do need you to be able to lift heavy (~50 pound) items.

Interested? Send three things to

• A paragraph describing what you find to be the most fun thing about working in IT
• A quick listing of what sites, blogs and forums you regularly read to keep up to speed with technology
• Your resume

We look forward to hearing from you.
