    We are a company out to build a positive culture and work environment where you can shine and feel good about what you do. We are looking for developers that match our culture of Can-do, Caring, Communication and Competency. Here are some examples of what we expect.

    • You should be able to setup multiple local environments on your own with a minimum of assistance.
    • You should be able to work with SVN or GIT (and no we don't want to see your white paper on why GIT is superior).
    • Maintain positive attitude - We interact with respect and gentle humor. Snark is minimized and encouragement is the order of the day.
    • Maintain and enhance your skills set - you will be given the opportunity to work on lots of code, different versions, platforms, integrations, libraries and SDLC organization and procedure. Every one of these is a growth opportunity. If that has you licking your chops climb aboard.
    • Balance - We like devs who have a full life. If you enjoy fencing, equestrian sports, skydiving, guitar playing, dog training, macrame, Golf, racquetball, Mandarin, Politics (careful!), family outings, child rearing, school plays, choirs, baking (all activities enjoyed by folks on our team) then we think those things make you a better developer! We aren't looking for 80 hour a week developer slavishly devoted to coding. We are looking for eclectic, interesting people who enjoy coding and want to do it for a living.

     

    Full Time Systems Administrator

    CF Webtools continues to grow and is looking to hire a full-time, experienced, Systems Administrator. This position provides challenges every hour of every day. We are looking for the self-starter who enjoys learning and expanding your talent. The office located at 11204 Davenport St in Omaha, NE and you may work from the office or remotely. Contact jobs@cfwebtools.com to apply. 

    Background 

    CF Webtools is a website development company that specialized in Adobe ColdFusion Web Applications. Our primary focus is Windows based IIS webservers running Adobe ColdFusion and Microsoft SQL Server and is ever expanding into Linux and MySQL with other cloud-based technologies. 

     We are a family-friendly organization with under 40 staff. Our core values are a can-do attitude, community, communication, and competency. We deal in legacy to bleeding-edge systems. 

    Knowledge 

    We are seeking someone who is experienced in Linux who has JVM, Tomcat, or ColdFusion administration knowledge. We are also open to someone who is highly motivated to become experienced in these technologies. We use primarily CentOS, Amazon Linux, and Ubuntu for Linux along with Windows Server. Bonus areas include VMware, AWS, networking, WordPress, SVN, GIT, SOLR, Microsoft SQL Server, and MySQL. 

    Objectives 

    You will join a team of three in the Operations Group. Your role will be to support both customer and internal infrastructure that, for the most part, serve websites. 

     You will build and maintain mostly virtual (remote) Windows and Linux servers. These servers will range from NOC (Network Operation Center) to Web and SQL Production server instances and some beyond that scope. That and everything in between including maintaining and configuring the services and applications located on these instances. Much of your tasks will require you to research, troubleshoot, and apply knowledge. 

     You also must not be code shy. You will need to learn and know the basics of the ColdFusion language (CFML), HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. In addition, you may be required to learn some other languages such as Python and PowerShell scripting. 

     Within one year, you will be required to obtain an AWS associate level certification. Individual learning time to acquire this certification will be done on personal time, while interactive experience is acquired during your projects. 

    Team  

    You will work with the Operations Team within CF Webtools. This team will help you find the right direction for any questions you may have. While most of the projects you will take on will be solo, team communication is important to provide consistency and minimize service disruption. Our primary method of communication is Microsoft Teams followed by emails. The director and a sys admin live in Omaha while another sys admin lives out of state. Both sys admins work remote. 

    Schedule 

    Your schedule is flexible, due to the nature of the position, but is based around 8AM to 5PM, your local time. Odd-hour migrations and troubleshooting, while not common, is normal. You will be on-call during weekends and holidays, based upon a rotating schedule of your other team members. This may increase or decrease in frequency. You will also need to be able to respond to alerts every weekday. These types of incidents occur more often but are typically handled within minutes and you share responsibility with the team. 

    Equipment 

    If you work remote, you will provide and use your own equipment sufficient to be efficient in your daily activities. Personal programs and accounts on the same equipment are accepted, however your work programs and accounts take priority. 

     Sample Tasks 

     

    1. New private GIT repository. Research and presenting top solutions. 

    1. OS and application upgrades. 

    1. Normalizing and maintain backups. 

    1. VMware ESXI upgrade. 

    1. Investigate and resolve hardware warnings. 

    1. Configure and troubleshoot VPN client and tunnel connections. 

    1. Connect directly with clients to complete a project or troubleshoot an issue. 

    1. Configure IIS, Apache, and Nginx websites 

    1. Configure, tune, and troubleshoot primarily ColdFusion application servers with some WordPress 

    1. Configure, tune, and troubleshoot Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL database servers
