Linux System Administrator – Vancouver BC (4 month contract)
Visier is a software-as-a-service start-up located in Vancouver, Canada founded by a couple of the pioneers of the business intelligence software industry. To fuel our growth plans, we require talented individuals who will thrive in the relative chaos of a start-up environment, and who love rolling up their sleeves, being highly creative, and diving in to achieve success.
Our vision is ambitious – to redefine the field of Business Analytics by creating domain-specific and end-user centric analytic applications, rather than simply building hard to use, generic business intelligence tools targeted at IT departments. Our first mission is to bring the UX-centric design revolution that has occurred in the consumer software world over the past few years into the domain of human resources analytics. The goal is to identify the most important insights and deliver them to our users in an easy to use and highly visually attractive way. We are still a small development team, and so we are looking for people who want to grow, learn, and wear multiple hats.
Hosting Operations and Information Security
The Hosting Operations and Information Security team is responsible for the 24×7 operations of Visier’s SaaS infrastructure including network, servers, databases, firewalls, and data security. The team is growing and needs a highly motivated and energetic person to meet our goals.
