The USGS is the nation's largest water, earth, and biological science and civilian mapping agency and is seeking IT professionals with experience and skill operating and maintaining software, hardware, and operating systems in a Linux environment. Applicants who have experience with Linux operating systems, modern code management tools, and modern operating systems maintenance protocols will receive consideration for this opportunity. The successful candidates will support the ShakeAlert Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) system (shakealert.org), a mission-critical, distributed system that rapidly detects earthquakes and generates and issues alerts to institutional users and the public.
