Sys Admin:The-Jack-of-all-Trades

As a system administrator at Mitsogo, my days are always unpredictable and filled with challenges. Whether it's troubleshooting tech issues or architecting new environments, I love the rewarding feeling of making things work and having a supportive team by my side.

Sys Admin:The-Jack-of-all-Trades

If you are like most sysadmins, your day starts early and ends late. It is a constant hustle of fighting fires and fixing obstacles. At the same time, it is quite hard to put into words a typical day in my life. Because, each day in the life of a system admin is quite different. I am pretty sure that my parents still don’t understand what I do for a living. Here at Mitsogo, I oversee a team of young admins looking to put their marks on our world. I am in charge of monitoring system performance and also configuring and maintaining any new hardware or software. As admins in charge of each and every device and application deployed throughout the company, we are where employees turn to, when they are in a pickle. Our day can be as breezy as resetting a forgotten password or as chaotic as a total network failure inside the company. As such, anyone looking to be successful in this role should have excellent troubleshooting skills and hands-on experience with various operating systems.


A typical day in my work life starts with addressing the queries raised and assigning them to myself or my teammates depending on the level of complexity. Apart from regular troubleshoots, things really get interesting when the company deploys new hardware or software. That’s where the real challenge lies, but that is also what I love most about this job. It is very rewarding to architect new environments and implement my designs and finally see them perform efficiently. If anyone who is reading this wants to be a system admin, one piece of advice I would give you is that always be prepared. You will never know what hand you’ll be dealt each day and the only countermeasure is to be prepared for every possibility. I know it’s easier said than done, but this is a field which greatly rewards preparation. Remember that. 


Coming to life at Mitsogo, we have a really great team of admins always ready and up for any challenge. Every admin knows that no matter how good you are, you can’t manage a whole company without reliable friends at your back. We are even good friends outside of work too. One of our admins brings in his grill and does cookouts every few weeks. Mitsogo rents us a football turf where we play almost every weekend. However, the biggest pro about Mitsogo is that the management actually listens to admins and that makes a huge difference. All in all, I love my job, and I have no idea what I’ll be doing tomorrow. That’s pretty exciting if you ask me.
