Experience Level: Intermediate
We have a very interesting financial trading project in need of some assistance.

Essential Skills:

* Experienced Linux SA (we mostly use CentOS 5 a derivative of Redhat)
* Good shell scripting (writing new scripts & amending existing)
* Ability to install & configure site monitoring packages (we may need help selecting & evaluating)
* Good overall IP skills including an understanding of data protocols & transport layers (UDP, TCP, Multicast, SCP etc)
* Ability to implement best practice with regards overall uptime, backups, security etc
* Lots of attention to detail required, I.E. writing test routines to verify business logic is operating as expected etc.

Desired Skills (advantageous but not essential, can train if required):

* An understanding of UNIXTIME would be helpful ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_time )
* knowledge of financial derivatives, program trading, algorithms etc helpful, but not essential ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algorithmic_trading )
* Exposure to FIX Market Data advantageous (it's XML based)
* Some C advantageous but not essential (we have custom tools in use that we maintain source for).

The work is 100% remote.

We're estimating 2-4 weeks work, though this is open to review once you have had a chance to scope the remaining work.
There is a possibility of ongoing work (long term maintenance contract) if this is of interest.
