Jobs Jobs Jobs…

…und damit meine ich nicht Steve! Wer diesen schlechten Spruch kapiert hat, sollte sich direkt mit einer E-Mail an bewerben 😉
Aber mal zum ernst der Sache: In diesem Blog wird viel zu selten drauf aufmerksam gemacht, das wir quasi durchgehend neue Kollegen suchen. Egal ob San Francisco, Zürich, Brüssel oder einfach Deutschlands Großstädte, als reisebegeisterter Consultant kommt man hier ganz schön rum. Solltet ihr Lust aufs Reisen und ein wenig Icinga, Puppet oder Logstash haben könnt ihr euch sehr gerne als Linux Consultant (m/w) oder Puppet Consultant (m/w) bewerben. Sollte euch die Wahl schwer fallen, könnt ihr unsere Kunden selbstverständlich auch mit allen Themen beglücken.
Als kleiner Anreiz: Aktuell haben wir für 2016 noch Consulting-Termine in Atlanta und Peking zu vergeben. Wenn euer Knowledge passt und ihr schnell genug eure Bewerbung schreibt, könnt ihr gerne dort hin fliegen 🙂
In diesem Sinne: Bewerben! Bewerben! Bewerben!

Weekly Snap: OSDC CfP, App Store & Doctrine Tips with Xmas & Travel Fun

12 – 16 December offered help for a Mac App Store error and automated database generation, called out to speakers for the OSDC, and shared stories of a consultant’s travel nightmare as well as photos from the team Christmas dinner.
From afar, Julian found his own solution to a Mac App Store product distribution file error, which was preventing him from installing an app update for TweetDeck’. By looking in the log files, he could locate and delete the faulty file and its related cache files, to successfully install his new app and even post a a guide in the process.
Eric got straight to the point and showed us how to automatically generate a database with Doctrine. Equipped with YAML schema files and a script for Doctrine CLI, he gave an example generation of an SQLite database with process hierarchy.
Toby then shared a day in his life as a consultant on the road, giving hopeful applicants a taste of what not to expect on the job. Meanwhile, Pamela shared photos of the team’s self-made Christmas dinner at the ADKK (Academy of Cooking Art) in Fürth and also opened the OSDC 2012 Call for Papers.

Interested speakers are welcome to submit their presentation ideas till 31 January 2012. But that’s not all – three intensive workshops on the conference eve are also available to choose from, on IPv6, OpenNebula, Puppet Configuration Management. Early birds can also profit from ticket specials till 15 February.

Weekly Snap: IT Process Automation, Open Source and Consultant sought

2 – 6 August started the month with a look into open source and IT process automation business trends and a call out to Linux Consultants to join the NETWAYS team.
In a research study roll, Julian shared a report published the “Computerwoche” on the lacking IT process automation in many companies. Less than 50% of the IT departments which partook in the study had automated 40% of its business and IT processes. The main reason for this was the lack of resources and fear of embarking on a cumbersome project. Nonetheless, all agreed that automation promised significant savings, with 2/3 expecting concrete savings of 11 – 20%. Julian suggested however that in actuality savings could be much higher as not only unnecessary manual labour is avoided but many errors too. Fear of high costs is also unfounded, as many open source tools for automation can be found such as Request Tracker (Service Management), Puppet (Configuration Management) and Mule (Enterprise Service Bus).
Following on, he quoted another study which found more than 2/3 of CIOs interviewed in public and private sectors across USA, UK and Ireland intended to invest more in open source this year. Furthermore, over 1/3 planned to migrate a essential applications to open source. Interesting to see was their motivation – the majority saw open source to offer better quality (76%), greater reliability (71%) and higher security (71%) beyond the potential cost savings (50%).
Finally, Karo announced a position open for a Linux Consultant with expertise in systems management and monitoring. Duties pre-sales and post project support, support, project implementation and documentation for customers in and outside Germany. If you are confident in Bash, Perl, C/C++ and a range of monitoring systems (Nagios, OpenNMS, HP OpenView etc.) yet also in customer relations, we look forward to hearing from you.
