It is an intellectually stimulating environment with the latest T5-x servers, Solaris11 Operating System and highly motivated staff focused on automation. This position fundamentally requires proficiency in managing a large Solaris environment, engineering new solutions, and maintaining an acceptable level of performance from Solaris systems. The emphasis is on engineering solutions for routine administration tasks.
We are seeking an individual capable of adapting to and handling unique challenges not seen in most Solaris installations.
Minimum 10 years' experience in engineering and administration of UNIX environment (Solaris is a definite plus).
Excellent Scripting skills in KSH & Perl. Python & C++ a distinct advantage.

Engineer solutions for deployment, performance management, and maintenance of Solaris based systems with an emphasis on quality of design that is efficient, usable, maintainable, and extensible.
Respond to performance related requests from application teams. Solutions to these problems are more likely to be found via DTrace and mdb than ps and the general Unix stat commands (vmstat, etc.).
