We are Advant Interactive, a group of web design and developer nerds. We’re a small bunch so far but we have plans for world domination. We’re based in Long Beach, just a Kobe 3-pointer from the beach and a taxi ride from the heart of LA. We are on the lookout for an individual who seeks a virtual part-time position providing server support to our client. All candidates must work with speed and enjoy sweating over tight deadlines. They must live to code and not be happy until they’ve seen a project through from insemination to birth to that first day at kindergarten.
Who are you? The dude (or dudette) for the role should have a minimum of 3 years working with server stacks and server-related technologies. We are seeking an individual with experience working specifically with AWS and Kubernetes to provide part-time server support for our clients.
Because we live in the virtual world, it does not matter where you reside. We do, however, will need to be able to contact you during Pacific time zone business hours. Still reading?
