NSS IT Committee Chairman Needed
IT Committee Chairman Darrell Wells is stepping down. The search is on for someone to take his place. With the importance of our Web site to the Society and its members, the IT Committee Chairman is critical to NSS operations and success.
We are looking for an experienced Unix (Linux) systems administrator, with additional skills as listed below. The volunteer would be responsible for the maintenance and operation of a dedicated virtual private server in a managed hosting environment. Primarily, this includes Apache, MySQL, and FTP administration. Most common tasks are completed via Parallels Plesk; although, due to legacy configurations from our previous servers, some tasks must be done via the command line.
The time commitment is a minimum of 8 hours per month. However, with several mission critical projects currently underway, the initial time commitment will be greater. The chairman will be expected to respond quickly to e-mail, and address problems as they arise. S/he will also be expected to work with other NSS Committees, Internal Organizations, and advertisers who interface with the NSS server. The chairman may recruit additional members as s/he feels necessary.
Necessary core skills:
* Linux systems administration
* Familiarity with Parallels Plesk or cPanel
* Apache web server administration
* Knowledge of HTML
* Perl/CGI/PHP scripting
* MySQL administration
* Knowledge of common web publishing tools, such as DreamWeaver and FrontPage.
Note: This position does not include maintenance of content on caves.org.
That responsibility is managed by the webmaster who serves on the IT Committee.
If you are interested in the job, or know someone we should approach, please contact me. If you have any questions about the job, please contact Darrell.
