I don't work for the EFF, but I hang out there and can see it's a great 
place to work and not only that, it's a great place for women to work.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), an Internet civil liberties 
nonprofit organization based in San Francisco, is seeking a fulltime 
Systems Administrator to work in our Mission District office.

The sysadmin at EFF is a support position, keeping EFF's systems and 
networks running securely while also providing hardware and software 
technical support for EFF's staff of 30. The ideal candidate must work 
well with a very busy staff with varying levels of technical expertise. 
EFF's sysadmin is on call 24x7 for response to systems emergencies.

The ideal candidate must have three to five years of systems 
administration experience. In addition, the candidate must meet or 
exceed Sage level "Intermediate/Advanced." (See: 
http://www.sage.org/field/jobs-descriptions.html#Intermediate .)

A successful candidate will be able to administer a wide variety of 
different operating systems, including Mac OS X, FreeBSD, Linux, and 
Windows. This position also requires knowledge of server applications 
including Apache, Mailman, Postfix, MySQL, and Samba. The candidate 
should be able to write administrative utilities in at least one 
language, such as Perl, Python, Unix shell or C/C++.

Since this position includes desktop support, knowledge of Mac OS X and 
desktop applications including Mail, Thunderbird, and MS Office is 
required. We're looking for a person who will make sure that backups and 
recommended updates are done scrupulously.
