[OT] OpenBSD "Network Specialist" wanted in Kilgore, Texas

James Shupe-4
I know this is off topic, but I'm looking to help fill my old position
after moving away from East Texas.

The company is located in Kilgore, Texas and runs a WAN based heavily on
OpenBSD (over a hundred OpenBSD boxes in router/firewall/VPN roles) and
Cisco/ Netgear Prosafe switches. They are looking for somebody who is
experienced with OpenBSD and capable of designing, implementing, and
maintaining OpenBSD infrastructure as well as supporting FreeBSD, Linux,
and Windows servers. The company is stable, has been around for several
decades, and has a few hundred full time employees.

A few highlights of what you will need to know:
- i386/amd64 hardware (Alix, Soekris, Supermicro, HP, Dell)
- OpenBSD/ FreeBSD/ CentOS/ VMware ESXi
- BGP/ OSPF/ EIGRP
- LACP/ VLANs, subnetting, etc
- PF/ iptables/ Cisco ACLs
- IPv6 (the deployment is dual stack, so this is a huge plus)
- ZFS
- Perl

There is an existing employee who is still there and has a good
understanding of the existing infrastructure, so you wouldn't be working
alone. Not everything is necessarily expected right away, but the
ability and willingness to learn is.

Salary is DOE and ranges from 52-72K for this specific position, but any
applicants would unfortunately be expected to cover their own relocation
costs because of the way funding is distributed. This is an on site
position and telecommuting is off the table. Email me privately for more
information.
