Dear all,

I'm looking for two to three new contracts concerning short-term projects
and/or retainer-based recurring sysadmin/maintenance work.

I'm member of the FreeBSD Ports team, made its Linux emulation layer use CentOS
6.5 instead of Fedora 10, am in the progress of porting GitLab and will do more
ports i'm interested in when time allows (I have a list... it's long).

I've worked with FreeBSD mostly in web server environments, setting up
jails to handle NGINX to serve static content, php-fpm to run wordpress, uwsgi
for Django, along with MySQL and postgresql for their respective backends.

Fun things included migrating a client off apache towards NGINX, thereby
doubling page load speed and tripling concurrent requests.

On top of that I've managed FreeNAS boxes running off enterprise hardware
(taken over and kept alive zpools with 20 Seagate SAS drives, set up and
maintained 48TB zpools for another client) as well maintained the backup

Smaller things included setting up OpenVPN servers and tunnels, tending to 
OpenLDAP/Kerberos installations, creating Salt config files for a large system
of (CentOS) containers with various software pieces inside, and continous
integration using Jenkins.

Looking for a contractor for a small FreeBSD-related job.

Rather than doing it myself, I'm looking for someone who is willing and
able to be paid to set up DNSSEC for my domain.  The server is
FreeBSD-based; you'll have access to it long enough to test it and make
sure it works as advertised.  I'll also need detailed maintenance
instructions and a set of automated scripts to do things like generate
keys and regen config files.  If you already have the expertise it
shouldn't take long and I really need it done.  I'm willing to negotiate
rates.  If you're interested, contact me at frank <at> or
fmayhar <at>

Looking for devops work

I am looking for devop work. My software development background seems to mesh very well with my
love of sysadmin work and because of that, I’m told I should be in devops.

My resume is at

I am located in Media, PA, and I do not wish to relocate.  That limits me to work in and around the 
Philadelphia, PA area or jobs which are remote-friendly.

Thank you.

Unix job post

To Whom It May Concern -

I was given this email address by Alfred Perlstein to send a job posting for a Unix position. Below are all the
details. Thanks:

International Knowledge Measurement ( is currently seeking Subject Matter Experts to
serve as authors and reviewers to create a web-based assessment test for Unix System Programming. This
assessment is designed for Unix professionals to measure proficiency in Unix Programming. It should
everything required for developers to work in a Unix environment. Note: this test will not really get into
shell scripting; we currently have a separate test for shell scripting.

These are part-time, contract, telecommuting positions where you work from home. Our authors and
reviewers typically work nights and weekends over a 6-8 week period to prepare an assessment that, on
average, consists of a pool of 150 questions. All work is done in an online tool, which is accessed through
the company's website. Authors write original test questions and reviewers validate these for
technical correctness. Some creative thinking and creative writing is involved. Compensation is based
on the number of questions developed.

This work is to develop test questions that measure a candidate’s knowledge of the technology. It is NOT
to work on our company’s system, or do develop software for us. Please understand this when applying.

Complete lists of tests we are currently developing and hoping to develop are available on our website:

Please have more than 5 years of experience with this technology. Previous teaching and/or writing
experience are big pluses.

Contact me with a resume if you are interested in this test or another at craig <at>

Best regards,
