Dear All,

Ogilvie Communications Ltd is looking for a UNIX Consultant to join our 
team developing and deploying commercial network monitoring software
using free software technologies.

You will be working in a small development group and your primary tasks
will be advanced consultancy, pre-sales questions and UNIX server 
administration as well as customer training and support. Scripting skills
are essential.

Working with network monitoring is a challenging position requiring
understanding of many commonly used technologies. Our customers
can deploy any kind of system - be it database servers, email, network
topologies or internally developed applications. We need to be able
to develop precise monitoring in co-operation with our customers, using
our experience of other systems.

You will be working with nLighten - a in-house developed network monitoring
product that uses Nagios and other free software to provide advanced
network monitoring to our rapidly growing list of customers.

Our software platform runs on Ubuntu LTS Server and OpenBSD, with
a friendly web GUI for our customers.

For more information about the software you would mainly be working with,
please see:

* http://www.nagios.org/ -- for Nagios
* http://www.openbsd.org/ -- for OpenBSD

Our customers have complex specific requirements and experience of working
as a consultant with big companies is an advantage.

The position is based in Stirling and includes a company car and other 
benefits. Commuting from Edinburgh takes approximately an hour and from 
Glasgow 40 minutes.


 * Solid UNIX experience with more than one type of UNIX
 * Scripting experience
 * Understanding a vast number of commonly used technologies
 * Full UK driving license
