We have opportunities from steel and copper, racking and cabling our lab, up through administration of ElasticSearch providing a persistent repository of test data. Our network is segmented, and thus complex enough to substantially benefit from VLANs and needing a more attentive network administrator. A small team and a rapidly maturing project means broad responsibility. We are looking for someone with vision of how we should implement the infrastructure supporting the automation platform, and the ability to justify their ideas on the basis of supportability, cost-effectiveness, and scalability.

Daily Responsibilities:
• Build security software for web applications, mobile applications as well as vehicle applications.
• Testing these web, mobile and vehicle applications as well as they’re building a software to be able to automate this testing.
• Work on modern infrastructures and have physical hardware and servers rather than a cloud to store and retrieve data effectively.
• Responsible for physically plugging in the servers, racking, stacking, cabling, etc.
• In the future this resource will work with Kubernetes, so this is a nice to have skill.

** Manager prefers local candidates, as this resource will have to be on-site whenever needed
** Need to have full stack knowledge, able to work from metal (physical hardware) to applications.
** Not looking for a DevOps resource, but rather someone who has worked on breadth of technologies and is hands-on.
• Runs a home lab using primarily open source technologies
• 5+ years managing and/or architecting IT infrastructure
• Experience documenting IT infrastructure including network connectivity, storage and deployment

• 2+ years of experience managing Network Infrastructure including routers, managed switches, and Linux networking configurations
• 2+ years of experience using configuration management tools such as Ansible and/or Salt, etc.
• 2+ years of experience using virtualization technologies via a CLI

Must Understand:
• Virtualization vs containerization
• OSI layers 1-7, Ethernet, and routing
• Infrastructure-as-code
• Physical equipment setup and layout

• Experience with Ansible and Git is highly preferable.
