NSS IT Committee Chairman Needed

Postby Dave Luckins » Feb 20, 2012 11:22 am

The Information Technology Committee (IT) needs a new Chairman. Are you the right person?
With the importance of our Web site to the Society and its members, the IT Committee Chairman is critical to NSS operations and success.

We are looking for an experienced Unix (Linux) systems administrator, with additional skills as listed below. The volunteer would be responsible for the maintenance and operation of a dedicated virtual private server in a managed hosting environment. Primarily, this includes Apache, MySQL, and FTP administration. Most common tasks are completed via Parallels Plesk; although, due to legacy configurations from our previous servers, some tasks must be done via the command line.

The time commitment is a minimum of 8 hours per month. However, with several mission critical projects currently underway, the initial time commitment will be greater. The chairman will be expected to respond quickly to e-mail, and address problems as they arise. S/he will also be expected to work with other NSS Committees, Internal Organizations, and advertisers who interface with the NSS server. The chairman may recruit additional members as s/he feels necessary.

Necessary core skills:
* Linux systems administration
* Familiarity with Parallels Plesk or cPanel
* Apache web server administration
* Knowledge of HTML
* Perl/CGI/PHP scripting
* MySQL administration

Desirable skills:
* Knowledge of common web publishing tools, such as DreamWeaver and FrontPage.
* Javascript, ASP

Note: This position does not include maintenance of content on caves.org. That responsibility is managed by the webmaster who serves on the IT Committee.

If you're interested, contact Acting Chairman Alex Sproul at webmaster@caves.org or Dave Luckins, OVP at ovp@caves.org
