We are looking for unique people and skill profiles missed by other recruitment efforts.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Ideal candidate could be classified a generalist, but with large focus on practical Windows administration and unusual problem-solving. You care about making things happen reliably at scale, detect when they don't, and are ready to spend an afternoon figuring out why just one computer isn't functioning correctly.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Great foundational knowledge is needed across OS and security concepts. We need someone who can make things happen via mature insights into practical problems and coordinate with multiple teams. Most importantly – in your quest for excellence you will have made past mistakes and misjudgments about your capability, learned from them, and used that experience to improve what you deliver and how you operate.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">This role will adapt to the person who fills it, but it is not a career-entry position. Innovative operational experience with Windows OS is primary criteria. Specific education or qualification are not required – but beneficial.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"><strong><span style="font-family:"Calibri",sans-serif">Requirement:</span></strong></span></span></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="tab-stops:list .5in"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Good general insight into a number of technology areas and how people interact with those systems to avoid interruptions.</span></span></span></li> <li><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="tab-stops:list .5in"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Not everything about Windows, but a healthy amount of unusual knowledge that
helps you solve many real-life problems others cannot. You talk about these things at length in approachable language, even if you may not know how some things work at the deepest Win32 level.</span></span></span></li> <li><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="tab-stops:list .5in"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Managing security systems and client management infrastructure for client performance and reliability.</span></span></span></li> <li><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="tab-stops:list .5in"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">History of security-relevant work output and passion, especially when not asked for. For example, delegating multiple areas in a file share with security groups, setting up proper permissions roles in a new tool, constructing a solution to detect or fix a unique security oversight.</span></span></span></li> <li><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="tab-stops:list .5in"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Competency around Active Directory, client management, and how it works at scale to produce a functional business network.</span></span></span></li> <li><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="tab-stops:list .5in"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Practical use of Microsoft Sysinternals toolset.
