Systems Administrator

My client is a successful and innovative commercial Bioinformatics business based in Edinburgh with customers worldwide. They are currently looking for a Systems Administrator to help manage and develop their IT infrastructure.

The company is a young, well-funded and profitable business, with a reputation for excellence and a strong, diverse customer base.

This role involves Linux-based server, security, network, web, and database administration. You will be expected to be involved in a lot of different tasks from monitoring hardware, Linux systems administration and systems architecture. You would be fully embedded within the operations team and longer-term you would help to further incorporate cloud-based solutions into the existing infrastructure.

Solid knowledge and past experience of Linux systems administration are essential as is a knowledge of virtualised environments. Experience of cloud environments (e.g. Amazon Web Services) would be desirable as would experience with aspects of web development (specifically backend) but are not essential to the role.

The company offer a great work-life balance with flexible working hours and a real team mentality. All in all, this is a growing business with an opportunity to make a real impact on their continued success.


  • Strong evidence of Linux / Ubuntu Server administration including configuration, monitoring, troubleshooting and automation.
  • Experience of working with virtual machines (in particular with VMware).

Desirable skills:

  • Maintaining and developing our Docker containers for developer environments and testing environments.
  • Experience with AWS.
  • Ability to audit for security vulnerabilities.
  • Web development experience (e.g. Rails, PHP, MySQL).
