Systems Administrator II - RetailMeNot

Information Technology Austin, Texas


Position at RetailMeNot

Are you passionate about supporting an office of dynamic and challenging systems, both desktop and server? Do others look at you as a standout colleague adept at customer-facing support, server, and security administration? Are you a self-learner who is not afraid of diving deeper into new technology? If so, we want to learn more about you! 

We need your help to build and maintain a global infrastructure that's both resilient and state-of-the-art. We utilize the latest enterprise software applications and proven standard methodologies to develop, maintain, and support an infrastructure that includes various SaaS applications and services, a global network of offices and cloud-based servers, and a multitude of operating systems and services.

In this role you will be part of an Information Technology team that is responsible for crafting and developing scalable, maintainable, highly available network and systems architectures that meet business objectives and SLAs.

You understand the concept of infrastructure as code, and will have implemented such in the cloud. You're an excellent communicator, cautious, calm under pressure, and happy to pick up and master unfamiliar technologies. You'll also get the chance to work with other members of the RetailMeNot team in our global offices.
