Hi, all--

My colleague, Paul English, posted these positions a few weeks ago,
but I wanted to send them out again, since we're still accepting
applications.  Please note that I'm not motivated by any referral
bonuses or other ulterior motives--just by the fact that 3TIER's an
awesome place to work and my desire to spread the love.  :)

3TIER's a small, but rapidly growing company doing forecast and
assessment for renewable energy companies, and we're looking to hire
one junior and one intermediate Linux sysadmin to join our existing IT
staff of two sysadmins and an intern.  Though we're small in number,
we do all kinds of crazy stuff: giant clusters,  scientific computing,
Asterisk system, web applications, corporate desktops...  We're almost
entirely Linux and Mac.

If you're into Linux, like the small company feel, and tend to be a
jack of all trades, it's a pretty rockin' place to work.  Extra
employee benefits include the warm fuzzy feeling that comes from
supporting sustainable energy development and getting to tell
acquaintances that you run computers that PREDICT THE FUTURE when they
ask you what you do for a living.  We're based in downtown Seattle at
6th and Virginia and are bicycle-friendly.

I've included the postings for the two positions in this message.
Please reply to <csjobs at 3tiergroup.com>.

Thanks!
