Are you a Linux Administrator? Do you want to work in games? Well, it looks like the folks behind Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen are hiring and looking for a Linux Administrator. Here’s what you need to know if you’re thinking of applying for the position.

The team put out the call earlier on Twitter, looking for a candidate with a “strong functional understanding” of Linux and networking,

As the Tweet notes, this is a contracted position and can be done remotely. This may be simply a result of the pandemic seeing teams solutioning how to create games remotely while at home. We actually have a pretty in-depth feature delving into just this very topic.

Required experience for this position includes:

  • Fundamental Linux and networking skills/knowledge: both function and performance measurement/tuning. Ubuntu preferable
  • Functional technology knowledge: AWS, OpenSSL, SSH, Shell scripting, python, HTML/JS/CSS, PHP, Apache, Nginx, MySQL, Postgres, APIs (REST/SOAP), VPN, CI (Jenkins, etc.)
  • Best practices: Security, automation and communication
  • Must be flexible and a team player

You can check out the full job description here. If this sounds like you, feel free to apply by sending your resume to [email protected] with the subject line: Linux Admin Application. Elsewhere in Pantheon news, a recent roundtable was all about lore.

And last month, the devs began selling NFT “unique collectibles” to raise funds for development. This decision split the community, with many voicing their opinion against this particular fundraising practice.
