I run a small media production business in Plimmerton, north of Wellington, and need a hand to complete an ESXi / Linux server deployment which is planned (and has hardware in place) but not yet implemented.
This is basically a modernisation of an old-style one-build-does-everything SME setup on Ubuntu 12.4 to an ESXi-based one with multiple Ubuntu VMs. The services running are mainly pretty bog-standard, email, web etc. There's an Asterisk VM already there which needs to be moved across, and we want to roll up an existing Windows 7 setup on a standalone box into a VM (ancient I know, but its required for legacy hardware).
The first VM to build will be a base routing layer with VPN, once thats up and working the other VMs can be slotted in over a period of several weeks, so this gig would be perfectly compatible with a fulltime job I expect. Hard to estimate the total time commitment to get it up, bug-squashed and basically documented; maybe 20 hours? Dunno, you tell me.
There's a small amount of tweaking also needed to some simple and small existing Python-based custom scripts that run a couple of in-house functions, including media syncing. Maybe you can do this too, maybe I need to find someone else.
Our resources are fairly limited, but I suspect this job will be fairly quick for someone with reasonable skills, so that should work out OK.
I've been advertising locally for a student with a reasonable slice of the skills and a desire for an ongoing part-time role here maintaining our IT equipment more broadly, so if that's you great. However I'm finding limited success finding anyone with anything like the requisite server skills also keen on ongoing part-time work, so it may be better to get someone to build and document the server as a one-off assignment. Either way, if you're keen it'd be grand to talk.
I've been envisaging someone coming here to do this, but in fact it may be perfectly viable to do this work all off-site in fact; I'm happy to talk about that.
Please reply here, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 027 2867325.
Thanks, look forward to talking with you!
