IT Infrastructure Specialist

Our mission at DarkOwl is to be the world’s leading darknet content, tools and services provider and to empower our clients to continually improve their cybersecurity defenses. We need your help in the ongoing fight of good versus evil by assisting in the management, security, and modernization of our endpoints and IT Infrastructure.

You will be working alongside senior technology gurus driven by a passion for mastering technologies, operational efficiency and continuous improvement. Core to our departmental philosophy is the notion that the moment you stop learning and improving is the moment you have fallen behind. You will have the unique opportunity to learn and master technologies on a variety of modern operating systems and nearly every cloud provider while exhibiting principles of Information Security and efficient DevOps. Although a development background is not required and in some circumstances is not ideal for this position, you will work closely with the development team and implement core ideas of efficient operations and automation on the rest of the infrastructure.

This is a System Administrator position on steroids, but without the experience requirements. A top candidate will demonstrate the ability to learn and master technologies quickly, solve problems efficiently, and learn from personal and observed successes and mistakes.
