As a result of some organizational shuffling and some role changes at work,
my company and team have two open positions right now!  Both are Systems
Engineer roles, one with a focus on Linux and network monitoring (Job ID
127092), the other with a focus on Microsoft Back-Office technologies
(Active Directory, Office 365, system management, patching, etc) (Job ID

These are generally more project-oriented positions (as opposed to
day-to-day operations focused positions) and we're looking for someone at a
mid-Engineer level (ideally, more than 5 years of IT experience and an
"engineering" mindset and understanding of building and managing
"enterprise" level services).  The positions have specific expectations, as
mentioned above, but people with a good grounding in multiple technologies
would be ideal.

The job postings can be found in the corporate careers listings
<https://www.intrado.com/careers.php> (main page) or use the Job IDs above
at the job search page
Alternately, they're on LinkedIn (and various other job posting sites).  I
also copied the Linux/monitoring job posting at the bottom of the e-mail.
