HostGator employs over 800 employees and handles on average over 500,000 incident reports on their systems per month. With a growing number of servers HostGator is continuing to seek new Hires with Linux and Web Hosting experience. Keep in mind that System Administrators work in a command line. Most systems operate on a CentOS platform and do require some TLC.

Administrators work with a wide array of systems including but not limited to DNS, Exmin, Apache, Mysql, Joomla!, WordPress and more.
