Linux Administrator - TS/SCI Required

Reston, VA · Computer/Software
US Citizenship Required 

Job Description:
Take your basic Linux skills to the next level.

Phoenix Linux Admins do not simply manage a handful of servers.  They use their Linux background to carry out mission-critical operations with advanced technologies.  Such operations include modern DevOps (using Jenkins and Docker), Big Data integration (using the Hadoop ecosystem), and automated admin tasks across dozens-to-hundreds of nodes (using Ansible or Puppet).  If you don't know these technologies, you'll learn them as a Phoenix Linux Admin. 
A typical day as a Phoenix Linux Admin will begin with a 10-minute scrum meeting by the "Integration" team.  Each team member describes what they accomplished the previous day, what they plan to do for the current day, and any impediments they face. The remainder of the day involves executing the specific tasks for the sprint in Agile fashion.  You'll collaborate with software developers on application integration, Information Assurance representatives on security implementations, and Systems Engineers on platform functionality. 

Expand your skill set with us... and we'll get you a security clearance too.
