About the role

We are seeking to appoint to the key role of Systems Administrator within our established and highly impactful IT Team, to deliver a varied, complex and stimulating workstream on a permanent, full-time basis. Although primarily based in central Innsbruck, the department is open to a hybrid and flexible working arrangement at typically 1 day per week from home. This post presents a great opportunity to get involved in supporting a thriving academic department to achieve its vision of a workplace where all staff and students can achieve their full potential. Many of the department’s members are involved in challenging and innovative projects, which increasingly require specialist IT systems and technical support. The IT Team collectively manage 1000+ devices and systems providing facilities and services to 100+ department members and 400+ undergraduate students, as well as numerous visitors and collaborators. As Systems Administrator, within the IT Team of 8, you will collaborate in the longer-term planning, security and development of these IT systems, using your technical expertise to support the various research groups at the Department of Computer Science. You will also work closely and collaboratively with the other IT Team members to deliver a high level of frontline and remote technical support. This will require significant initiative and problem-solving skills, including the development of new and novel solutions where appropriate. This particular position also requires expert knowledge and analytical skills in the areas of server administration for Linux servers and Windows clients, cloud end edge infrastructures (e.g. OpenStack, Kubernetes, FaaS), information security, operating systems, data networks, Web administration (e.g. Apache, WordPress, Postfix, Webmail);

You will be a member of the Distributed and Parallel Systems Group at the Department of Computer Science https://dps.uibk.ac.at/

About you

We are looking for candidates who are able to demonstrate first-rate IT experience, including in systems administration and/or systems programming/development; in modifying, maintaining and writing scripts (e.g. Bash, Python, Perl); and with automated desktop/laptop deployments. You will have a University degree and/or relevant experience alongside excellent communication skills, in particular the ability to converse at an appropriate technical level with a wide variety of users including senior academics. A collaborative approach will be a key feature of your role, yet you will be required to work independently, taking the lead to progress initiatives and adopting a systematic and methodical approach to problem-solving in a complex environment. You will be able to handle a demanding and varied workload, managing your time and prioritising your work effectively. You will be an enthusiastic and committed individual who welcomes the opportunity to contribute effectively to a wider team, and who is able to respond positively to new challenges. You must have very good skills in written and spoken English (B2/C1) and you should be willing to acquire good skills in written and spoken German after 4 years;
