About the job

We are looking for a Senior System Administrator to strengthen our Content Infrastructure team. Are you our next colleague?

The position

As a Senior System Administrator at NENT Group, you will be a key contributor to our core infrastructure - ensuring that we retain stable, up-to-date and modern systems to serve NENT Group's various services ranging from internal development to customer-facing streaming.

Examples of what we do:

  • OpenStack farms, backed by Ceph.
  • Responsible for internal networks and most company Internet traffic – we're a LIR, using four large providers.
  • Providing multi-petabyte storage to the group.
  • Building and managing the streaming platform where all Viaplay Sports and streaming TV channels originate (ingest, caches, load balancers).
  • We orchestrate most of it using Salt.

As the team is tight and rather small, your experiences and presence will be key to success in driving change within existing and new architectural challenges. You will take part in the complete flow from analyzing, propose, implement and of course govern the solutions.

We work with a rolling 24/7 on-call schedule where you are expected to contribute.

The journey ahead

We're a mature company with decades-old roots while at the same time entering an expansion phase, which places the Content Infrastructure team in a highly diverse situation. As a team responsible for large parts of NENT's core infrastructure, we need to both provide a rock-solid base while at the same time research and implement new technologies.

As an autonomous team, technology decisions are made within the same, granting a high degree of freedom, but also the responsibility to do our due diligence. The team works with all three pillars of infrastructure (compute, network, and storage), which requires open-minded generalists who are curious to take on any tech that comes our way. Our hearts lie with open source and the culture surrounding it, and we see that yours do too.  

What we are looking for

We believe that you have been working as a System Administrator about 7+ years and have a proven track record of managing complex system setups, sometimes with short lead time to solve ongoing incidents. We also value that you are easy to communicate with and have a service mindset both within your own team and towards stakeholders.

You are goal-oriented, driven, and easily switches between tasks, at the same time keeping focus on completing the ongoing ones. We also believe you are accurate in your work and always set quality first.

Successful candidates also meet the following requirements:

  • You need deep Linux knowledge (BSD is fine too, but do know that we’re a Linux shop). 
  • You need to be able to script, preferably in Python and/or shell, but we’re not looking for a programmer-first devop.
  • You need to be able to read and understand source code when needed, but you don’t need to know ASM.
  • You need experience in modern datacenter Layer 2 and Layer 3 networking.
  • You need to know the difference between block, file, and object, but you needn't have built a global filesystem.
  • You need to have seen and managed lots of different hardware, but you don’t have to be able to recite all Intel CPU models since Celeron 300A…
  • What we’re saying with the above is that you need a lot of experience in different fields, but it’s not necessary to be an expert in any of them. The team strives to be sysadmin full-stack – thus the most important requirement is a solid Linux base.

Bonus skills that will make you stand out from the rest:

  • Experience in
    • Docker and Kubernetes
    • OpenStack/Open Infrastructure
    • Ceph
    • ELK stack
    • Salt, Ansible or similar tools for automation and control.
  • Driver’s license.
We want to hear from you! 

If this feels like your kind of challenge, please apply and attach your CV and cover letter. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact our recruiter Lisa Sindsjö.

Please note that a background check will be performed on the final candidate before hiring.

What we offer you

You will become part of an amazing company with great people, content and culture. Some of the benefits we offer you when working here are:   

  • An agile approach, freedom to try out new things and independent decision-making by our autonomous teams.
  • A place to grow and learn from our mistakes. We have a learning and development focused environment with an emphasis on knowledge sharing, training and regular internal technical talk.
  • An innovative environment with hackdays two times a year. 
  • An international and diverse environment with people from all over the world working here. We have 35+ different nationalities in the office coming from different backgrounds.
  • An attractive offer with a beneficial occupational pension plan, insurance plan, health care, 30 days of paid vacation, flexible work hours and parental leave pay lift.
