Job alert: Is this the toughest sysadmin role on Earth? And are you badass enough to do it? (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/10/16/looking_for_sysadmin_work_like_travel_dont_mind_co ld_have_we_got_the_job_for_you/)



For some people, landing a job in IT means going to the ends of the Earth. In this case, quite literally.

Scientists in Antarctica hope to hire two tip-top techies to fill system administrator roles – one at the McMurdo research station and the other in a similar base at the South Pole.

You must be a US citizen (for security reasons) and hold a bachelor's degree to stand a chance. Other skills required include the ability to manage networks with Windows, OS X and Red Hat GNU/Linux systems as well as VMware virtual machine instances. Most of the work will involve setting up and supporting the IT infrastructure for various research projects taking place on the two bases.
