Education/Work Experience:
The successful candidate will have excellent customer service skills with the ability to handle and diffuse difficult situations. A degree in a technical discipline or equivalent experience is required. You must have at
least 3 years’ prior experience working in a service and/or technical support environment supporting Linux servers (Red Hat or Scientific Linux is a plus). Exposure to applications servers such as Tomcat, JBOSS,
Servicemix, or Weblogic is preferred. Your past roles should have provided you with 3 years’ experience with relational databases such as MySQL or PostgreSQL. You should possess a broad understanding of LAN and WAN technologies. Your technical skills should also include shell scripting (BASH, Python). Experience with Windows and OS X operating systems also required.

Most importantly, you should have well developed troubleshooting skills (an out-of-the-box creative problem- solver!) and the ability to learn how all the pieces of an application infrastructure fit together, such that when
seeing evidence of failures, you can plan an approach to successfully resolve the issue. You should have experience working with monitoring systems such as Nagios and Monit. Prior experience with ticketing
systems like Salesforce, Desk, the Atlassian suite of products (Jira, Confluence) and RT a plus.

You must enjoy customer contact and can deliver exceptional customer service even during high-priority situations. You respond to users with a high degree of professionalism and accuracy, and so you have
outstanding verbal and written skills. Finally, you can multi-task and work under dynamic conditions and constraints with minimal supervision – a self-starter! (i.e. strong analytical, prioritization, time management,
and follow-up skills) Our company is at the intersection of technology, healthcare and big Pharma and prior experience in a similar setting with HIPPA requirements is strongly desired.
