***Candidates able to work onsite/hybrid in the Twin Cities only***

SkyWater is partnering with a technology forward logistical company here in the Twin Cities that is looking for an independent minded engineer. Ideally this person has expertise on the Systems side, but is not afraid to get their hands on the Network side as well. 

It’s a relatively small team, so this person would thrive in an environment where they’re given ownership over much of the decision making process as well as the maintenance and implementation within their department. 

It should go without saying my client offers very competitive salary as well as full benefits. Their industry is thriving right now and they expect continued growth through the year as well. So if a small but stable environment is what you’re looking for, they can certainly offer that. 

Here’s a few bullet points on the day-to-day of the role:

  • Take ownership of monitoring the hardware integrity and keep accurate reports to determine life expectancy, monitoring when warranties and/or licenses expire
  • Serves as the highest point of escalation for infrastructure
  • Leads team remediation for known or found vulnerabilities
  • Leads (monthly/quarterly) patching of infrastructure
  • Collaborate with Systems Admin on network & endpoint security at various locations
  • Maintain Citrix infrastructure
  • Assist software IT team in isolating trouble
  • Contributes to hardware specs and purchasing for both servers, computers and peripherals
  • Perform diagnosis and resolution tasks for problem/service requests
  • Help create documentation for all processes and equipment
  • Facilitating power and redundancies for hub and spoke sites
  • Collaborating with Systems Admin for backups and backup infrastructure

Also, a few of the qualifications they’d like to see:

  • Associate’s degree in Information Technology, Computer Science, or related field, or equivalent experience.
  • 7+ years’ experience with hardware systems and systems applications – including Microsoft servers/OS
  • Very familiar with DNS, TCP/IP configuration and server/systems industry best practices
  • 3+ years Citrix knowledge highly preferred (Virtual Apps and Desktops) – provisioning and deployment
  • 3+ years VMware knowledge preferred
  • Project Management skills
  • Ability to follow security procedures and assist in immediate response to any threats.
  • Ability to learn, understand, support and train for new technologies.

Lastly, this client does offer remote work, but would prefer a local candidate that has the ability to get to the office a couple of days a week. If you’re at least interested in learning more, please submit your resume.
