Hello Michigan team!
I was looking through listings on the UM Jobs website and I found one that could be perfect for one of the Michigan Team members if they are looking for a job. I'm not qualified for it, but because of the Linux technical experience required for the job, perhaps one of y'all can do it. You can apply even as an outside candidate; just go to umjobs.org and scan the listings for job ID 20255. Heck with it, I'll just paste the bulk of it in here. GOOD LUCK!!!:guitar:
