Senior System Engineer

About this Role

We’re looking for a Sr. System Engineer to help us tackle some serious growth. Our managed services portfolio has doubled in the past two years, and we want to keep growing. We need someone to take the lead on some implementations and help direct our junior staff. Being a generalist is great, but there are some essential skills we’re looking for, listed below. 

This is a remote position which means you’ve got options; we’d love it if you’d consider moving to Anchorage someday but, you can work from anywhere- as long as it’s in the US. We’ll occasionally ask you to pop in for a visit at HQ in Anchorage or help us deploy some new systems at our data center in Seattle (next door to the Amazon Spheres).

You may be a good fit if you possess several of these skills with a demonstrated ability to use them in a production environment. 

  • PowerShell – If you’ve got some strong PowerShell scripting abilities, we’d definitely like to hear about it.
  • SQL Server – We’re not looking for a database expert, but if you have a reasonable understanding of SQL or other database administration, this is a good thing. 
  • Windows Server Administration – Have an MCSE or a handful of MCPs? That’s awesome; those skills will come in handy.
  • VMware – We’re all virtualized over here, and you should be too. 
  • VDI – Not a required skill, but some familiarity would be preferable. 
  • Enterprise Storage – We’ve got a lot of data and if you can help manage it, let us know. 
  • Intermediate to advanced networking is a big plus but not a requirement. 

Seem overwhelming? Remember, you won’t be going it alone – there’s an entire team behind you, dedicated to your success. 

Applied Microsystems is committed to being an equal opportunity employer; we recognize the value of diversity in all forms. We welcome varying abilities, backgrounds, cultures, and experiences alike. 

Not qualified for this job but still interested in working for us? There may be a role for you that we haven’t even thought of yet. We love to meet dark horses and aspiring talent whenever possible, so please reach out anytime. 

Education:

A minimum of a Bachelors’s degree in computer science is strongly encouraged but can be substituted for relevant experience and certifications.

Location: This is a remote work opportunity with the occasional requirement to travel to our HQ in Anchorage Alaska, our Seattle facility, or customer sites in Alaska and the lower 48. All candidates must be based in the United States.

Pay & Benefits:

This is a full-time position that we hope to fill long-term. Pay is DoE. Benefits include: PTO, paid holidays, sick, maternity/paternity, bereavement leave. 401K plus profit sharing. Medical, dental, and vision coverage.
