Do you primarily run Linux on your desktop at home?
Does the thought of being a future SysAdmin of one of the worlds largest cluster environments excite you?

We are looking for someone young, someone that we can mold into our practices and most importantly our culture here at DownUnder GeoSolutions. What you will receive, along with a fantastic group of colleagues, is pathway to being a full SysAdmin to one of the largest clusters in the world!
As well as data room tasks associated with managing a large cluster, this role includes desktop support of our 160+ internal users, predominately on Linux platforms,but also includes some Windows and Mac desktops.
If this sounds like you, then what are you waiting for? Send us your resume!
