On May 7th and 8th, Linode will be hosting a job fair at our Kings Hall location in Haddonfield, NJ (literally, minutes outside of Philadelphia). We aim to hire as many as 10 Customer Support personnel immediately, with a goal of an additional 25 by year end.
Who are we looking for? People with a passion for Linux, who have the ability to troubleshoot problems, and have a strong desire to help our customers. Customer Support has the most contact with our customers, so we have high standards for this position. You must be able to write well, converse professionally on the phone, and, as Rudyard Kipling sagely advised,”keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you.”
What’ll make you really stand out? If you’ve got experience with technologies and topics like firewalls, iptable rules, DNS, Apache, nginx, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Postfix, BIND, Perl, Python, Bash, etc, etc. — you get the idea.
But if you don’t know all of these, don’t despair. We hire for cultural fit, social skills, technical aptitude and a solid work ethic. We’re committed to training and developing the people we hire.
And there’s the impact you can have. Other companies offer you the opportunity to fill a role; Linode offers you the chance to make a difference.
Of course we offer great benefits — health and dental insurance, a generous supply of paid time off (including to help a favored charity), MacBook Pro computers for everyone to use, weekly catered lunches, plenty of cool swag, social outings, conference attendance, etc.
The job fair runs from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Thursday, May 7th and Friday, May 8th at Kings Hall, 2 Kings Highway West, Haddonfield, NJ 08333. There’s parking in the area and a PATCO high-speed line station is within walking distance.
