Linux Technical Expert

Do you know Linux and like to live on the command line? Are you a service-minded problem solver? Do you want to be a part of a great team with social activities outside of work hours? In that case we believe that this position could be for you. 

At OP5 we take pride in helping our customers and as a result we enjoy an impressive customer approval rating. Our customers' IT environments are undergoing a rapid change with new technologies being introduced. We are on a mission to help our customers manage their environments.

In this role you will become a product expert and assist with advanced problem solving for our customers. You will have the opportunity to dig deep in the technical parts of the product. The support is primarily provided via email or web. Much of the development of our products is customer driven and you will be a very important link in that since you will work with our customers’ needs on a daily basis. You will also get the opportunity to produce technical documents and articles.   

For this position you need to have a good competence within Linux, probably acquired by installing and maintaining Linux servers. You are a generalist who like to solve IT issues and eager to learn new things. You will join a great team in a great company that is just the right size. Big enough for you to have lots of colleagues to ask when you need help but also small enough for your contribution to make a real impact.

  • Experience in installing and maintaining Linux servers
  • Written and spoken Swedish and English

What you will do

  • Assist our customers on challenging technical questions related to the use of our products

  • Knowledge of scripting languages (Bash, Python, Perl etc)
  • Knowledge of monitoring systems e.g. Nagios or OP5 Monitor
