Currently searching for my next opportunity

I have a strong background in systems administration, specifically CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu, RHEL, SuSE, and OEL. This experience also includes an advanced knowledge of shell scripting (BASH) for system optimization and automation. I have built a strong skill set in monitoring production servers and responding to platform alerts, as well as implementing changes, troubleshooting, and ensuring all assigned roles and responsibilities were resolved or properly documented for hand-off. A precise attention to detail that is tailored with several years’ experience.
