– Experience in Linux Systems Administration, predominantly in a RHEL environment
– Excellent communication skills with the ability to tailor details to business and technical audiences. Demonstrate strong written, verbal and white boarding skills.
– Coding and scripting expertise with knowledge of Python, Perl, Java, Ruby, and Shell. Expert knowledge in one or two of these is necessary. Python is most preferable.

– Development Methodology – Familiarity with processes and standards, such as ITIL and DevOps philosophy.
