Linux Systems Administrator - Hedge Fund

I have recently been engaged by a successful hedge fund in London who are looking for a Linux Systems Administrator who can work unmanaged, driving the business forward.

A Linux System Administrator is required to manage the funds growing environment. Preferably, with a deep interest in servers and operating systems and professional experience with Linux.

The successful candidate will join a small team which works closely with the trading teams in order to ensure timely delivery of tuned systems.

You must have professional experience in the System Administration field; previous trading exposure is not required, but it is necessary that you are happy with the demands of a trading environment.

Candidate skills:

  • Experience with Linux (CentOS preferred but others are fine) 
  • Good Bash scripting 
  • Basic Python scripting 
  • Basic network understanding 
  • Great communicative skills 
  • Basic Project management skills 
  • Flexible to work outside trading hours for production implementation 
  • some datacentre work is required, this will mostly be on saturdays, and for the moment at least will only involve the central london datacentre.
  • some minor occasional desktop support is required for the non-tech staff in London office.
