We are hiring: Sysadmin - Senior Chaos Manager
2e Systems is seeking a steady hand to bring order to the chaos in our small but critical Sysadmin group.
2e Systems is a highly versatile computer engineering and development company specializing in online booking, eCommerce, mobile and communication solutions for the airline and travel industry. We develop and operate critical systems for airline customers worldwide. Our head office is in in the Frankfurt area (Bad Soden am Taunus) but our second biggest office is in Zagreb.
Ideally we want someone to relocate to Frankfurt, Germany or Zagreb, Croatia. Remote work possible, but you know how it goes - out of sight, out of mind. But if you’re confident you can work efficiently whilst remote, we can talk as long as you don’t mind occasional visits to Frankfurt per year.
- Job description:
You have not only the basics of Unix/Linux systems administration covered but also the intricate nuances. You know why Linux is not the same as Unix. You don’t care. You don’t know all the ls(5) flags by heart, but you do know what the number in brackets means. You also know the number above is not correct.
- Main tasks of the position:
You are a SAGE level IV systems administrator with 5+ years of experience. You don’t have to google to know what that is.
You have an OCD where you can’t sleep until you get everything right, but you also understand that between perfect, fast and cheap, one can get only two, rarely.
You are lazy. You automate everything that makes sense automating. You are also happy with a checklist. Once or twice.
You document your work. You document “why” much more than “how”. You document not for yourself but for people coming after you. When going through other people’s scribbles you are able to discern the whys and hows, even if that person is not the best technical writer.
When you see something broken, you don’t just fix it, you look back and try to understand why is it broken and what else is or will break. And when you finally fix it you fix it everywhere and for good, not just where it hurts the most. Most of the time.
- Beneficial skills:
You are able to interface with other humans, from time to time at least
You can handle customer calls professionallyYou don’t mind passing on your knowledge to a deserving young bedouin
What we offer

How much money does it pay? Don’t worry about that - you know what you're worth and we do as well. If you are worried that we will be wasting your time, remember that you will be wasting ours too
- How to apply:
You don’t have to fulfill all of the requirements. You don’t have to be even half, but if you see yourself in 2 or 3 of the main tasks listed, please contact us at:
We don’t really have an HR department screening the applications, all of them will be read by your future boss, so please don’t be a serial applier, write something dorky!

If you require help / sponsorship to work in your preferred location, please state this clearly
