SharePoint Administrator is a person who is solely responsible for configuration and maintenance of a SharePoint Server or a Farm. Promoting user adoption, developing and implementing a governance plan, implementing compliance and discovery, negotiating SLAs, enforcing ownership of applications and sites with stakeholders, collaborating with developers and testing backups is an essential part of a SharePoint Admin''s duty.

Roles, Responsibilities and Duties of a SharePoint Admin:

1. Installing, configuring, maintaining, upgrading and managing a SharePoint Server or a Farm.
2. Configuring all service applications like Search, Metadata, User Profile Synchronization etc.
3. Creation of a Content DB and maintaining it. It involves maintenance of various logging databases in SQL Server. Compressing of logging Databases is also done by SharePoint admins since they grow in size considerably.
4. Assignment of proper permission levels for all users of the site as well as configuring anonymous access if required .
5. Configuring timer jobs depending on business requirements. Timer jobs are very important in SharePoint. One of the timer job is to backup the sites everyday. This is very important as it helps to restore the site to its previous version if any error occurs.
6. Knowledge of powershell is very important for a SharePoint Admin. Clients usually prefer a person who can configure the whole system using powershellsince it''s much faster than UI. In one of my projects, the whole farm configuration was based on a powershellscript which almost took 45-50 minutes to execute. It would have taken hours if the same thing was done using UI.
7. Training and supporting the business users in their day to day involvement in SharePoint sites. For instance uploading a document, starting an approval workflow etc.
8. Solid understanding of IIS, Active Directory and Mail Configuration.
9. Configuration of Business Connectivity Services for connecting to a SQL database or a WCF service.
10. Strong understanding of what can be done using OOB features in SharePoint.
