Find Your Next IBM i or AIX Admin – Fast!

I just did a quick search on Indeed.com for open IBM i administrator positions. There were 290. Glassdoor had 165. While that may not sound like a lot, the challenge is that certified IBM i (and AIX) administrators can be hard to find. Not many universities or technical schools (if any) include IBM Power Systems in their curriculum anymore, and many of the currently certified administrators are nearing retirement age.

These positions can remain unfilled for months unless you’re willing to settle for a less-qualified candidate – or outsource your IBM i or AIX administration.

We hear all the time from companies who are desperate for the right iSeries system administrator after going through a merger, acquisition, or consolidation (including the acquisition of unfamiliar IBM systems) or after losing a key resource. They don’t want to give up their platform, but their lack of a qualified IBM administrator has left them in a bind and their systems at risk.
