Generally I don’t use my blog as a platform to find potential applicants for my employer, however at this point we are looking very seriously at some new candidates to fill out our Systems Team.
This is a job that is very much “Systems” focused. At Keste we define Systems as everything from the hardware up to the applications, this includes but is not limited to Servers, Storage, Networking and Virtualization. Because this is a very broad area, we expect folks to have expertise in multiple areas and most importantly to have the capabilities to learn and broaden their knowledge where they have weaknesses.
The other thing you must know about this job is that it is a consultant position, this means that you will need to travel (we say 50% – however it has been lower than that in my experience), and additionally you will need to be comfortable presenting in front of customers at all levels (technical, business, users, etc). So if you have poor social skills then you would have to have some pretty phenomenal skills which will raise the team around you to support your weaknesses, but that wouldn’t necessarily be a deal breaker.
