Include answers to the following questions when expressing interest in working with AGIX:

  • How would you rate your integrity? At AGIX, trust and integrity is everything. We need to know that you can be left alone to work on complex tasks and be fully open about what went wrong, how it happened and what you did to resolve it or if you need help to resolve it. Integrity is the most important quality of anyone working with AGIX.
  • How would you rate your communication skills? Being able to clearly discuss complex matters with both clients and other AGIX team members is critical. All team members must be able to clearly and calmly discuss matters that may be stressful, complicated and timely without hassles.
  • How would you describe your availability? AGIX team members need to be contactable by phone and messaging (Slack) at abnormal hours. Some AGIX team members prefer to work in the evenings and at night or during normal business hours but understand that clients need issues solved in a timely matter at times when the responsible AGIX team member might not be anticipating the issue. Included in your availability is the ability to drive if that is part of your duties. Most AGIX team members aren’t required to visit clients (they work remotely) but it may be required from time to time.
  • How would you describe your personality type? For instance, most of the time you’re happy, sad, concerned, stressed, focused, resting, surfing (in water or the net) or perhaps you’re focused on studying. This helps the AGIX team understand how to approach you both professionally and socially.
  • What qualifications and certifications do you have? For example, do you have an IT degree, are you certified as RHCE or LPI or do you have experience in the field relevant to the work you’d like to do with AGIX? Mention anything that makes you technically suitable for working with AGIX. AGIX is a business focused on IT Security, Linux and opensource in general.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
