Northeastern University's new Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things (W-IoT) has established a position dealing with cutting edge wireless technology that can only be handled by someone with a strong technology acumen to fill the role of the W-IoT Systems Administrator. As the newest member of the W-IoT Institute team, this position will be working alongside faculty, postdoctoral research associates and engineering staff researchers to design, modify, support and grow on and off premise experimental research systems. A key requirement is to ensure that the institutes' operations keep pace with the demands of multi-disciplinary research and experimentation by leveraging (1) shared high performance computing, (2) VM and cloud computing, (3) data storage infrastructure, and (4) broader IT services. The scale of the critical shared software infrastructure to manage resembles a mini datacenter.
Bachelor's degree in a technical or scientific field, preferred computer science or engineering with a minimum of 3-5 years of experience.
Excellent interpersonal, communication, and documentation skills are essential, as are time-management and organizational skills. Demonstrated ability to learn independently and interest in acquiring new technical skills is more important than familiarity with every item on a fixed list; however, the candidate does need to have an established working base of knowledge and experience. To ensure that essential services are available to the Institute, work outside of regular business hours will occasionally be required for this position.
PLEASENOTE: The University recognizes that to effectively recruit and retain key employees in certain professions, current market pressures may require starting salaries outside the established guidelines. Salary is commensurate with experience.
