Web: https://2e-systems.com/
Type of employment: Full time

2e Systems is a highly versatile computer engineering and development company specializing in online booking, ecommerce, mobile and communication solutions for the airline and travel industry; we develop and operate critical systems for airline customers worldwide. Our head office is in the Frankfurt area (Bad Soden am Taunus) but our second biggest office is in Zagreb.

Ideally we want someone to relocate to Frankfurt, Germany or Zagreb, Croatia. Remote work possible, but you know how it goes - out of sight, out of mind. But if youre confident you can work efficiently whilst remote, we can talk as long as you dont mind occasional visits to Frankfurt per year.

2e Systems was established in Germany in 2000, we now have offices in Croatia, Ireland, the UK, the US, and Australia. We use many of the latest open source frameworks and technologies to build stable and high-quality products.

We provide airlines with internet and mobile solutions for booking flights, check-in, notifications, and crew management. Customers include airlines such as Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Swiss Airlines, airBaltic, Croatia Airlines and JetBlue.


Job description
You have not only the basics of unix/Linux systems administration covered but also the intricate nuances. You know why Linux is not the same as Unix. You dont care. You dont know all the ls(5) flags by heart, but you do know what the number in brackets means. You also know the number above is not correct.

Requirements and necessary skills

Main tasks of the position
- You are a SAGE level IV systems administrator with 5+ years of experience. You dont have to google to know what that is.
- You have an OCD where you cant sleep until you get everything right, but you also understand that between perfect, fast and cheap, one can get only two, rarely.
- You are lazy. You automate everything that makes sense automating. You are also happy with a checklist. Once or twice.
- You document your work. You document why much more than how. You document not for yourself but for people coming after you. When going through other peoples scribbles you are able to discern the whys and hows, even if that person is not the best technical writer.
- When you see something broken, you dont just fix it, you look back and try to understand why is it broken and what else is or will break. And when you finally fix it you fix it everywhere and for good, not just where it hurts the most. Most of the time.

Beneficial skills
- You are able to interface with other humans, from time to time at least ;)
- You can handle customer calls professionally
- You dont mind passing on your knowledge to a deserving young bedouin

- An exciting, inspiring and interesting job in the airline industry
- The company is relatively small and focussed on getting the job done
