The Sr. UNIX/Linux System Administrator position we have open is a part of the Project IT team.   The Project IT team spends 50% of time with integration and 50% time in systems administrations & support.  We integrate small environments (one to three racks) for our product which is then sold and shipped to the customer.  Environments typically include between 5 and 30 servers and fiber attached storage.  The more complex environments will also sometimes include fiber switches, load balancing, and clustering among other more complex technologies.  Once the environment is finished and sent, the helpdesk department primarily handles support.  The Project IT team acts as escalated support for system administration issues that the helpdesk team needs assistance with.
