"Michael Paoli's" job openings
LINUX/UNIX Job opening(s) with which I am quite/very familiar.
I'm not the hiring manager for these (I'm technically not a manager,
and haven't been for quite a number of years).
These are, however, job openings with which I'm rather to very
familiar, and with which I am, or have been, quite closely associated.
The first one noted below is in the group I'm in
with my present employer.
The second one is at least approximately a replacement for the position I vacated
with my former employer.

We're looking for approximately a
SAGE Level II: Junior Systems Administrator
skill set / experience level of LINUX/UNIX systems administrator,
based on the information I've received.
This position would be
right along with myself
(Michael Paoli - I joined BabyCenter 2007-04-09)
and co-workers as part of a small LINUX/UNIX systems administrators team.
One can view the "official" job description here:
Based on my conversations with the hiring manager,
I'd tend to think that at least some of
what's stated on that
job listing are likely at least a bit overstated (the description may possibly
have been reused to a large extent from an earlier more Senior listing).
Probably everything mentioned on that posting is,
however, at least a "Desired Skills".
we've started interviewing, and will likely continue until we've found the "right" candidate.
To inquire, please
e-mail me at work
regarding questions, etc.
"Systems Administrator, referred by Michael Paoli"
in the subject line
as the posting sources, and e-mail as a single e-mail to both
my work e-mail address
and also in that e-mailing, comply with the applicable instructions found at:
Systems Administrator http://www.babycenter.com/about-jobindex-engineering#admin1
For my work e-mail address,
(or use tr '[a-zA-Z]' '[n-za-mN-ZA-M]')
If you sent me your resume earlier
or have otherwise applied, feel free to e-mail me (at my work e-mail address) regarding status, or let me know if you want to resubmit with an updated resume.
Secondly, there's a position with my former
employer in an environment I am very familiar with (I was there through
To look at the official listing/description, and/or to apply,
navigate these links as follows (some of them might possibly change
slightly ... also, if you can't find the listing there, that doesn't necessarily mean the position isn't still open):
Last I looked, they'd omitted URL / link to
SAGE Level Descriptions,
though they'd retained mention of specific SAGE Level
in the description of the job opening
(I'd included URL in the draft I'd prepared for the description of the job opening - much of which text they included in the posted description).
Note that (at least from what I saw as of 2007-04-29) it is listed for multiple locations (e.g. the position could be filled at any one of these multiple locations):
- Start at: Wells Fargo
- Follow the "Careers" link towards the bottom of that page.
(if one wants to look at benefits, follow the
"Working at Wells Fargo"
links, otherwise ...)
- Note: At least as of 2007-05-19 I no longer find the position
by searching the web site (by Requisition Number or job title).
I have reason to believe
(at least as recently as 2007-08-03)
that the position is still open and that they're not yet
particularly close to filling and closing the position
(though they may be using a contractor and/or other means to temporarily cover the vaccancy).
If you're unable to find it by searching the site,
you may want to try searching again later (the position may get
reposted to the web site) and/or check back on this
web page (you're looking at it) for information on status
- Follow the "Find a Job" (button-like) link
- Follow the "Find a Job" (button-like) link (yes, ditto)
- Search for Requisition Number: 3127917
- Note that "Close Date" is shown on that page (that date may, or may not, be changed or extended)
- Follow the link of the job's title: "Oper Systems Engineer 4"
Anyway, having worked in that group and essentially that position
for about three years (and for that company over 11 years in total),
at least unofficially and informally I can probably tell you a fair bit about
the company and the group and position.
To inquire on that (unofficial information),
e-mail me at my personal e-mail address (which can be found
under here, among other places).
To officially apply, doing so via the Wells Fargo links noted above is probably most appropriate.
I did also get the "nod" from the hiring manager to be able to forward along resume(s) and queries if one is looking for
"official" answers and information and/or wants to get some of that stuff more directly to them.
If you want me to do that, send the resume, query(ies) and/or what have you, to my personal e-mail address, as noted above, and please be sure to clearly state that you wish me to forward (whatever) to the hiring manager.
In any case, any applications, to be considered, have to,
at least at some point, go through the official process anyway (application
on-line and/or actual hardcopy application form; if I'm not mistaken,
sooner or later actual hardcopy application form has to be submitted
for anyone they're actually going to hire - but I think that form is also available in softcopy (probably PDF) form).
Anyway, ... good company and all that, ... I did work for
Wells Fargo for a
total of over 11 years, after all.
