Drop whatever you're doing, read this, and put your excited hat on—Jobbatical is hiring! There's a sysadmin-shaped hole in our team, and you might be the one to fill it.

At Jobbatical, we think beyond borders and help the world work together. We believe the world really is your oyster and your next career step could be combined with your travel aspirations. We believe that the traditional 9-to-5 work model is fading away and that people want to join mission-driven teams, wherever they are in the world.
We want to encourage individuals and employers to be honest about their commitments to each other. It's our goal to encourage companies to set aside cultural biases and hire the people with the best skill set for the job. We follow the same principles in recruiting for our own team—we don't discriminate based on nationality, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or anything else that doesn't have anything to do with the role you'll be filling.

Are you the System Administrator we're looking for?

We are a fun, super-driven and fairly nerdy international team working together in a cool and comfy office space in Tallinn's trendy Kalamaja area. Our tech team is growing quickly, and we've reached the point where we could use the talents of a skilled system administrator. If you love startups, tech, and the idea of a borderless world, we want to talk to you. So hit that "Apply" button and show us what you can do!
