Linux System Administrator/Desktop Support Specialist

Location: Houston, TX
Date Posted: 01-05-2017
Mister Art, a subsidiary of Macquarium is seeking an experienced Linux System Administrator/Desktop Support Specialist.
The corporate culture is what makes this job unique. Those who like to manage their own time and work in a more casual, less structured office environment will appreciate being a part of the team. 

We are a leading e-commerce company driven to improve online consumer experiences via technology-focused solutions since 1996. Our Montrose District office is home to our hardworking team intent on offering the best products, service, and prices in the industry. From our leadership team and senior engineers to our designers and photographers, we take pride in what we do, and feel privileged to serve so many inspirational artists and crafters.

As a key member of a highly integrated and multidisciplinary team in a small business environment, responsibilities will range from mission-critical to mundane. One minute, you'll be Superman, saving the day with a complex, high-level Linux System operation, the next you'll be Clark Kent, asked to perform a routine Desktop Support task. The right person for this job will understand that all of these functions are critical to keeping things running smoothly, and respond with an awareness that every team member's request is important.
