Wanted SysAdmin for Vulture Central

Situations Vacant Are you an experienced SysAdmin? Are your Perl skills unparalled? Do you know Linux as well as Linus does? If you do, The Register wants to hear from you. Now.

Because we've grown so quickly, so far over the last 18 months, we now need someone to take full charge of Vulture Central's increasingly complex Web server set-up. We're looking to recruit a SysAdmin with at least two years' experience in a Unix and/or Linux-based Internet environment. You'll also have a solid working knowledge of both Perl 5 and MySQL on Linux.

We also expect you to demonstrate your experience with Linux clusters, basic TCP/IP networking, system and network security, and an understanding of load-balancing techniques (previous experience of Cisco Local Director would be a distinct advantage).

In return, not only are we offering a very competitive salary (according to experience), but a Central London (Mayfair) office and the opportunity to be part of the IT world's most respected, most feared news source. You too can bite the hand that feeds IT.

We welcome applications from anyone with the relevant experience. However, you must be able to demonstrate you have the legal right to work in the UK, and you must be (or be willing to relocate to) within easy reach of our server centre in the City of London.

Letters of application and CVs should be emailed to Linus Birtles, The Register's Publisher. The closing date for applications is Monday 17 July. ®
