Job Description:

Who we are

Although not a household name, State Street is one of the world’s largest and most important financial services institutions, providing round-the-clock services to the global investment community. We touch $33 trillion in assets every day, and are the world’s third largest investment manager with over $2.8 trillion in assets under management. To do this we manage as much data as one of the internet giants on nearly as large a technical footprint.

In January 2018, we launched one of the industry’s largest technical transformation projects, in effect building a new bank from the ground up. This project isn’t greenfield in the way most banks claim projects are; we’ve started with a blank sheet of paper both operationally and technically. We’re using the same technologies that Silicon Valley giants are using: aggressive use of multiple public clouds, building our own private cloud to achieve even better performance, pushing out microservices into what will be one of the largest Kubernetes installations in the world, leveraging immutable storage to process and store hundreds of terabytes of data a day, transforming our industry through application of distributed ledger technology and cognitive computing, aggressively participating in open source communities driving our systems.

This isn’t a traditional banking role. This is a chance to push your technical skills with people more comfortable in a technology firm than an investment bank, but solving real problems that affect anyone with any form of savings worldwide (not just trying to get people to click on ads). We don’t expect you to wear a suit, we don’t expect you to not be able to tell your friends what you’re working on, we don’t expect you to sit in meetings 5 hours a day.

What you will do

As a Linux System Administrator, you will work amongst a team of professionals with full responsibility for the state of our Linux platform in a cloud environment.

Application teams rely on this team for hardened images, regular patching, packaging of binaries and support of kernel parameters.

In addition to the direct management of Linux hosts, your team is responsible for providing dispersed geographically and business aligned technology teams with standardized OS images and updates.

Who you are

You have experiences that demonstrate expert level administrative knowledge of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and 7.  Experience with other common Linux distros (Amazon Linux, CentOS, Ubuntu) is preferred.

You have expert level proficiency with shell scripting and intermediate proficiency with Python.

Experience staging and maintaining private yum repos in an enterprise context is a strong plus.

You have a good understanding of modern, cloud centric architectures and DevOps principles as well as common network and storage concepts.

You have excellent collaboration skills and a passion for problem solving.

You have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, or a related field.

State Street appreciates the value diversity (in all its forms) brings to our firm
