  • That has to be a really nice salary

    I'd take the job, but I really need a nap around 11. And 3.

    That somehow reads to me as "jack of all trades" that does the job of 2-3 people to save money.

    Let them do: firewalling and networking (with different brands), administering a virtual environment or TWO (totally different ones). Then let them be coding folks in Windows scripting (urks) and let them not only be a network engineer but a system administrator to pat windows and linux systems both.
    Throw in some MS Cloud tech, ARM knowledge, DevOps stuff (because buzzword bingo) and let's just do the complete MS stack from local to cloud and back.

    How that translates to "pfSense (spelled it right for you!) systems administrator" I don't know. I also don't know what systems administration has to do with network/security/firewall engineering position. Sorry but this kind of glorious "job offers" make me cranky. If your position is named "firewall/network engineer with pfSense focus" (pfSense systems admin sounds real strange) then I expect it to be mainly that job as an applicant. And not "run our MS stack from here to the Azure cloud and back, do some ARM magic on the way and ... oh yeah, we have a firewall with pfSense, you can do that, too, right?". 🙄

    I believe this to be an HR/management strategy to get the candidate to accept lower wages, because it's unlikely any applicant will have the full catalog of skills required ("Well, I guess we'll give you a chance, but...").

    Looks like they want Helpdesk, Buyer, Multi- OS Sysadmin, Network Engineer, Security Engineer, Virtual Environment Implementation and Management...

    And Spellchecker!

    Hey, that's what I do at my house! :)

    Or maybe, with so many disparate systems, they just fall for every sales pitch the IT Director gets?

    Looks like spam to me. Spelled both pfSense and administrator wrong.....
