Having won a new contract, an established software house in Wantage, South Oxfordshire is building a new team to develop, support and maintain an innovative, GIS data tool/web platform, based on the Java/Linux stack and used by emergency services in real-time across the UK.

The Role

The Linux Systems Administrator will help to maintain and ensure the resilience, security and high-availability of the platform through the structured roll-out of CentOS 6 updates to the server suite, overseeing software application updates across multiple environments, applying PostgreSQL database updates and through routine backups, etc.

The Company

The Linux Systems Administrator will be joining a company that develops a variety of market-leading products, used privately as well as commercially, by both the emergency services and military. As part of a small, tight-knit team which encourages every member to reach their potential, the Linux Systems Administrator will be working with ex-special forces personnel and others at the top of their game, to build the future of their technology.
