I hate to spam mailing lists with job averts, but they are often the 
best place to find linux bods, but here's the details for the job going 
with us

Red61 are a growing software development company, based in Edinburgh, 
specialising in live event ticketing. We are looking for a new full time 
member of staff to join the team as an IT Support person.

Excellent communication skills and a passion for new technology are 
essential. Your role will be to maintain current systems and you will 
work closely with the Systems Architect to extend those systems and 
develop new ones.

You will be part of a close knit team, but you will be self motivated 
with good diagnostic skills and have the confidence to take ownership of 
tasks and solve problems either directly or through delegation.

You will provide IT and system support to customers and other members of 
the team and you will be joined by short term seasonal staff during key 
busy periods.

Red61 clients include the Edinburgh and Brighton fringe festivals and 
the workload is therefore seasonal. Evening and weekend office work may 
be required during busy periods but working hours are flexible outside 
these times to take account of additional hours worked. Other Red61 
clients who operate year round work outside of normal business hours and 
you will therefore be required to work on-call shifts which will be 
shared with other members of the team.

The salary ranges from £20k to £25k depending on experience.
