Linux Engineer - Finance - 40-50k+ bonus

Financial Services, FX / Derivatives House,London

A top tier financial information services company in London is looking for a Linux Engineer / Systems Administrator to join their global team in providing technical support and working on the continuous improvement/engineering across a broad range of Linux focused infrastructure products.

Key accountabilities:

  • Troubleshooting, maintenance and configuration of existing infrastructure
  • Project work - solution builds for critical system and application rollouts
  • Direct interaction with clients / vendors / delivery teams to ensure a smooth process at all times

The client is looking to employ a core technologist with great communication skills. The ability to be able to efficiently communicate with other departments will be pivotal within this role.

Desired Technical Skill Set (personality is just as important as having strong Linux skills):

  • Linux administration - Redhat ideally
  • Automation/Scripting experience, Perl/Python/Shell/Bash
  • Understanding of messaging/middleware platforms - eg Websphere MQ
  • Networking experience

This is an excellent opportunity for a talented technologist with good Linux skills to break into the financial sector in a broad technical role as previous financial experience is not a prerequisite for this role. The client is looking for switched on, ambitious individuals who have a real passion for technology and want to learn in an enterprise environment. Engineers with this attitude have historically always progressed rapidly within the company, both in title and in compensation so this is the ideal opportunity for an engineer who wants to build their career long term in finance.
