We are rs-unix in San Francisco, CA, a Premier IBM Business Partner,
looking to directly hire a senior Linux admin with as many of these
attributes as possible. We are a leading Linux business partner, especially
with IBM and Novell (SuSE).

Applicants need to be fully enthusiastic and able to effortlessy work with
Linux and also work with our sales people (including me, the Solution
Architect) to solve customer problems with effective and efficient SuSE or
Red Hat and IBM-based solutions. With rare exceptions, all work will be
confined to the Bay Area.

Full company benefits apply to this position as does a competitive salary
based on experience (including a leveraged compensation plan based on

excellent knowledge of existing, often used, components
5) Customer facing skills (pleasant, courteous, helpful and kind)
6) Corporate experience and acceptance that Linux is a means for making
money, not a religious experience to be experienced freely or given pro
7) Experience with at least three major ISV Linux products (Veritas, JBoss,
MySQL, PolyServe, SteelEye, any Novell, Aduva, ...)
8) Experience with IBM Linux-compatible software (Lotus, Rational, DB2,

11) Any server (hw) knowledge
