System Engineer II
Sitka Technology Group is a Portland-based application development and managed services firm with an immediate and important opening. Our firm is founded on the principal that our main objective is to help others understand and reduce the complexity found in systems that manage knowledge concerning our environment. We specialize in Enterprise SaaS applications that focus on helping natural resource managers and policy makers make more informed decisions in matters of conservation, restoration, and use of precious environmental resources. We are a close-knit group that enjoys putting our technical and analytical skills to use for positive purposes.
This is a technical operations role and is one where you will get to wear a lot of hats and enjoy a lot of responsibility. If you are drawn to smaller organizations where diversity and autonomy in your workday is important and stimulating, this could be a perfect fit for you. In addition to an increasing number of resources managed in the Cloud, Sitka owns, operates, and manages its own servers at a pair of colocation facilities, one serving as the primary and the other as a recovery site. You will be the primary person responsible for the ongoing operations, monitoring, security, and maintenance of our managed services business. In this role, you will work with senior management, our development teams, and your operations co-workers to ensure that Sitka’s software solutions and infrastructure perform well and are available to our customers.
We see this area of our business growing in the months and years to come and are looking for a person who has an interest in leadership and project management in addition to tangible technical skills.
