We hate tape.  We hate it so much we spent money making T-shirts that say so. But sometimes, to really hate something, you need to understand it in an absolute sense.  If you have in depth knowledge of tapes, tape drives, legacy technology, SCSI, SATA, Fibre Chan, Backup and Restore, and general all around IT knowledge to help a company grow – then you have passed first base with us.  To get to home plate, you have to be a perfect cultural fit.  If you don’t fit, we don’t want you – and you wont want to be here.

  • Experience in both LAN and WAN networking in an enterprise environment which includes protocols such as IPSec, MPLS and VPN.

  • Ability to build resilient and scaleable systems as workload demands.

  • Experience in cloud computing in either Azure, GCP or AWS – preferably all of them.

  • Competency in the design and setup of cloud virtual Servers, networks and databases.

  • Competent in Python and Shell Scripting.

  • Previous experience supporting Backup products such as NetBackup, BackupExec, Commvault, Networker, TSM and similar.

  • Help maintain, design, manage, and build data centre and mass tape ingest facilities in the USA, Europe, and wherever else we decide to grow into.

Tape Ark is building something special and we are looking for someone who is ready to give us their all.  This job is not for the feint of heart.
