Systems/PostgreSQL Administrator (U.S. or EU - Remote)
Command Prompt, Inc. is seeking an intermediate
level Systems/PostgreSQL Administrator to join our group of
PostgreSQL systems experts!
We seek someone who has a deep
knowledge of Linux, and who knows how to manage heterogeneous
systems. You can demonstrate strong skills in systems
administration. You have a clear understanding of how to
administer several systems that are mostly the same, but that
have small local differences. If you do not feel comfortable
saying, "I'm not familiar with that in your environment," then
reading documentation, and coming back with a test plan for
deployment that will reveal problems with your strategy, this is
not a job for you.
The ability to imagine, propose,
test, and deliver integrated and maintained solutions to users'
problems is the key to success in this position. You work well
in a team: you don't have to work 24 hours a day, because other
people can always log into any system you maintain and know
where everything is, how it got there, and how to add new things
if they're needed.

services company. You will be interfacing with customers,
therefore customer service and professionalism is key.
