We are looking for a Systems Administrator / Developer.

Our ideal candidate will have 2+ years relevant experience, be a whizz with Linux and know their way around Windows and Mac OS X.
Based at our offices in the centre of Bristol, UK, you’d be joining a passionate, highly motivated team, who work hard to produce brilliant and beautiful products for our clients.

You will be helping our web developers to maintain Linux servers, Windows based systems and Mac OS X workstations. You'll need a strong understanding of network topology, as well as routing and TCP/IP problem solving. Some knowledge of managing a cellular WAN and using VPNs would be great.

Experience of server-side scripting in PHP, Perl or Bash is essential. We run our LAMP stack on servers running Ubuntu and it's completely CLI.

We have many projects in the pipeline that we may want you to get involved in or take a lead on, depending on your skills and experience.

We make a lot of the Lobster Pot system in house, so if you can solder, that's a plus. We're a small (but fast expanding) company, so being able to pitch in with a wide variety of tasks is essential – and strong communication skills, both internally and with clients, are essential.
