Job Description :
Windows Admin (with Linux)
Location: Fremont, CA.
Typical hours – 3pm – 2am 4 days a week. There is a rotation and there is flexibility.
Duration: 3-6 month CTH

?T?op 3 :

1. Linux/ Windows Server (20% Linux 80% Windows)
2. Active Directory
3. SQL


About 80% of the systems will be windows server based in some fashion, and the linux portion is all contract supported systems that needs relatively simple administration experience, but nothing heavy. Active directory, LDAP, cisco networking, vmware, and office stuff like printers and phones are more the bread and butter of the position.

Need someone that has some degree of experience or inclination for the machine side of things – the automation, the PLC, the sensor, the logic processor, et c. Understanding that and the relationship to the software that controls it and the hardware it connects to and runs on, and their effect in the real world once a machine is engaged and a motor is running is the super difficult thing that we’ve continually run up against.
