News You Can Use!

We’ve got word from a confidential source that there’s a
great role coming available for the right person. The company is dialed-in
to all things new and modern in the tech world, they offer the option to
work from home or from their London office, and they have a small team that
enjoys a lot of autonomy. If you want the scoop on this plum role, read on!

The company is a leading online tech publication with over 40 million
readers all over the world. They delve into a broad range of topics like
software and hardware, cloud services, AI, electronics, culture, and space,
just to name a few. With all those fascinating stories floating around, you
can bet there will be some interesting conversations with your teammates
around the proverbial water cooler! Although, with the option to work
remotely, the water cooler chat may move online, which is better—who even
huddles around a water cooler anymore?

So, you’re at home in your jams,
ready to work—but what are you doing? Great question. The client is looking
for a SysAdmin-meets-DevOps guy or gal to work on their Debian-based Linux
systems, and their Perl, Bash, and Linux tooling. You’ll bump up the
automation of their deployment systems so tech and ad-ops teams can go live
in less time than it takes to say “print is dead.”

Once you’ve
supercharged the deployment systems, you’ll tweak server build scripts,
document and apply backup and restore procedures, monitor servers and their
logs, keep systems current with software updates, and generally ensure that
the online news keeps running like a well-oiled printing press. You’ll fit
right in if you enjoy writing your own tools using Perl, Bash, HTML, CSS,
JS, and a little elbow grease.

Listen, our confidential source tells us
that this position won’t last so if you’re interested, put pen to paper (or
better yet, fingers to keyboard) and let us know why you’re the right fit
for this tech publication titan!

Desired skills:
NOTE THIS IS FOR THE SYSADMIN ROLE ONLY: It's a sysadmin role at a very
well-known publication. They've got a very sensibly written Perl
application, and most of their sysadmin automation is written in Perl too,
so they've very much sold on Perl, although this is very definitely a
sysadmin role with Perl, rather than a Perl developer position.
