Junior Systems Admin (Linux) - Hedge Fund - London

Junior Systems Admin role - Hedge Fund, London

My client, a Systematic Investment Management business in Mayfair, uses fully automated systematic strategies based on statistical and signal processing techniques to trade within the future markets.

This company has been around since 2009 and are looking to expand with a Junior Systems Admin to join their team. The role will include maintaining the Linux servers; managing users, disk space, backups etc., keeping existing software running smoothly and installing and maintaining new software as the business requires. Liaising with service providers, making purchase recommendations to the partners, etc. However, this is a lot of responsibility and that also requires a lot of trust. This is necessarily going to take time to build, so other tasks during this process will be dependent on other skills the candidate has that the business can make use of, including Java/Bash/Perl development.

The ideal candidate will have strong academic qualifications (Computer Science or equivalent.). They should also be able to demonstrate strong practical abilities and attention to detail. However NO commercial experience is needed, a straight Graduate could fit this role as long as they have a passion for technology.

A good knowledge of some of the following is essential:
•Good OO programming experience (Java preferred but C++ or C# is ok)
•Databases (SQL, postgres)
•Good experience writing and maintaining bash and Perl or Python scripts
•Experience maintaining Linux from the command line. The candidate should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the structure, and ability to read and modify; boot scripts, typical system configuration files, permissions, log files etc.
•Knowledge of installation, configuration and maintenance of (again, without the aid of GUI or web-based tools) some of the following systems:
- apache httpd
- asterisk
- dhcp
- dns
- ipsec/racoon
- openldap
- openvpn
- postfix
- postgres
- samba
- shorewall
- subversion

This company is a very relaxed, meritocratic environment with salaries and bonuses that will outweigh most organisations in London. Please let me know if this would be of interest and if you would like to have a conversation with some of the team to find out more.
