Systems Administrator - SHIFT Communications

Boston, MA

We are SHIFT Communications. We are what happens when you combine social media goodness with traditional PR. We are what you get when 130+ brainy, fun people actually like working (and playing) together while crushing it for our clients.
We are the place where killer ideas are born and where office politics goes to die. Not the other way around, like some other places you may have worked.
SHIFT is seeking a systems administrator. You will participate in the design, planning, testing, deployment, management and support of the implementation of increasingly larger and more complex servers as well as providing technical support to all of our four of our offices.
We are looking for…
An energetic and dedicated worker who loves to come up with innovative solutions. You have solid organizational skills, including an aptitude for setting and managing the priorities and requirements of several projects at the same time. You have a keen eye for detail and are accustomed to working under pressure. You have a sense of urgency on the job, as well as strong oral and written communication skills. You are comfortable in working with and learning about many different products and technologies in a fast-paced, demanding environment.
