Salary 60,000 – 90,000 GBP per year
– 3+ years of experience as a systems engineer/administrator in a healthcare environment, including management of InterSystems (Caché)-based applications
Expertise in at least one major Unix operating system (Linux and AIX preferred)
Experience planning, configuring, and managing high-availability and disaster recovery solutions at both the OS and database level
Experience using VMWare VSphere to create, manage, and monitor guest systems
Healthcare integration or development projects (particularly HL7/C-CDA integration)
– J2 Interactive is looking for qualified candidates to help us provide systems engineering, administration and support to our various clients. You can think of this job as a combination of hardware/systems architect, systems administrator, and DBA. It requires the kind of foresight, reliability, responsiveness, and dedication that you’d expect in someone whose responsibilities include making sure systems run smoothly and without interruption. But the right people for this job will also bring creativity, problem-solving ability, and a knack for developing and communicating architectural proposals to both a technical and non-technical audience.
Most of our work is in the healthcare space, particularly with the InterSystems technology stack (Caché, Ensemble, HealthShare and TrakCare). So, if you have experience deploying and administering those products, we welcome you to apply. Candidates who have administered systems for Caché-based healthcare applications like Epic or GE Centricity are also an ideal fit. At the OS level, most of our clients are on Unix, with AIX and various flavors of Linux the most popular choices. If you are a pure Microsoft person, this position is less likely to be a fit for you.
We generally do a good job of keeping travel to a minimum for our employees, and this is especially true for our systems engineering group. We don’t do any physical installation of hardware and network infrastructure, so we do all of our work remotely and travel only when there is a strategic need (such as a joint planning/architecture session). That said, there is a growing demand among our customers for off-hours support, and therefore our systems group needs to work together to provide off-hours coverage for certain accounts. Building redundancy in our systems group is a key part of our strategy for work/life balance; in other words, we won’t set you up to be the only person who knows a particular customer’s systems. There will always be someone else on the team to cover for you when you’re taking time off.
Though our headquarters is located in Charlestown (Boston), MA, this is a telecommuting position open to anyone who’s eligible to work in the UK.
J2 Interactive is an award-winning software development and IT consulting firm specializing in customized solutions for hospitals, labs, research institutions, and health information exchanges. Our approach to design and development is rooted in a fundamental belief that systems succeed or fail based on how well they serve the people who depend upon them. For our clients in the healthcare industry, that includes doctors, nurses, technicians, and administrative staff but ultimately, it means patients and their families.
At J2 we get a lot of satisfaction out of helping our customers succeed, and we want people with that same commitment to getting the job done right. We’re not afraid to give people the responsibility of working directly with clients, defining project specs, and choosing implementation strategies. Our casual work environment and telecommuting options give our staff a high quality of life to go along with the technical and creative challenges of the work itself.
Generally speaking, we are looking to hire full-time, salaried employees. But if you’re a freelancer and want to stay that way, we’re open to discussing a contract position as long as we can get a stable, predictable full-time commitment from you.
