Windows Job Description: Seeking a Windows Systems Admin (SysAdmin) who will provide second level support and problem management. Candidates should have in-depth, hands-on experience of the Windows OS, specifically Windows 2012, 2008, and 2003, as well as common technologies used in a Microsoft environment such as Active Directory, and SCCM. Additionally, they should be familiar with scripting, i.e. PowerShell not just running manual commands off a KB and able to run, maintain, and write basic scripts. Experience with Chef, VMware vSphere, and/ or AWS is a plus. Responsibilities: • The position is for an operational (run) group. SysAdmins will respond to incidents and as well as handle support requests for a variety of technologies related to our Windows service. As a queue owner, SysAdmins will be responsible for the general health of the queue (resolving tickets, identifying trends, finding the technical cause of problems) as well as recommending process/ system changes to eliminate incoming workload, optimizing team process, and escalating where appropriate. SysAdmins will also have project responsibilities (i.e. executing some of the improvements identified by them or others on the team) and will own small projects within their respective area. • The position is for a primary day shift (8-10 hours per day). Participation in a team 24x7 weekly rotation is part of the role. More extended off-shift time may be needed but these would be planned significantly in advance, and generally associated with project work where maintenance windows need to be observed. • This is not a low level position. The person will need a deep understanding of their respective area. But this is also a hands-on operations position. Engineers that only want to do projects and/or design and architect solutions will not be happy with this role. • While not a hard requirement, given the overall direction of IT infrastructure is to transition workloads to the cloud, experience with AWS and cloud development is a plus. Qualifications: • Break/Fix, Provisioning & Decom, Patching, Migrations, Documentation • Analyzing, troubleshooting and resolving system OS, software, and performance issues • At least 5+ years of experience in relevant technologies • Hands on knowledge of the Windows operating system environment • Must be able to work well in an ambiguous and changing environment • Core Skills/Technologies • Windows 2012, 2008, 2003 • Active Directory • SCCM • Intermediate PowerShell scripting • Additional Skills/ Technologies: Chef, VMware vSphere, AWS.]
