I'm setting up some new domains and would like to switch all of them over to an 'in-house' setup. This needs to be setup properly with SPF's, initially 3 domains, proper security in place as well as SSL's (CA signed, not self-signed). I will be placing this on a digital ocean server.
Proper knowledge of core security practices as well as the ability to take direction and communicate well.
If this job goes well I will have additional projectzs for the right candidate, however, this project is ONLY for the Zimbra setup. I will provide login credentials and you must complete the rest. Please reply with the following:
1). Who's the best basketball player of all time?
2). What's the largest website network you've setup and what are some of the tools you used?
3). What's the best way to provide redundancy on a 3 node MySQL setup?
4). Git or SVN?
5). Ruby, Python, Bash, PHP?
6). What's the best way to secure SSH logins?
7). What are the most minimal permissions that a webroot can have and explain how you would make a directory within that webroot writeable?
8). Have you ever worked with Zimbra and if so what was your experience with it?
9). What is your hourly rate (think before you answer this).
10). Lets assume I offer you a job tomorrow, would you be fully committed to this project or do you have other commitments to take care of?
All candidates that do not answer these specific questions will not be considered - please don't send me canned responses of 'I built this one website' - just answer the questions above.
Final candidates will be given a 20 minute interview/siege exam via chat.
PLEASE NOTE - this job requires that the candidate be available entirely in US business hours. No exceptions to this rule - none, don't ask. UTC - 7 (9 a.m. - 5 p.m. approximately). We are looking for an individual, not a firm or company. We have our own issue/bug tracker and private chat system - the successful candidate must be willing to use our system, not theirs.
Look forward to hearing from everyone.
