It also includes the various software elements around both the core operating system(s) and the various application layer components that are deployed upon that framework.  
  
Responsibilities:
 
A Systems Administrator is the second line support and is to set an example for the Juniors and Support Assistants and be their point of escalation if necessary. They are encouraged to also propose and work on (and sometimes lead) projects that will advance the technology framework. This includes elements of project management, communication across other departments, the delegation of tasks and coordination of schedules.
 
A Systems Administrator performs daily duties of maintenance on applications, OS, hardware, monitoring resources and troubleshooting.
 
They will be on-call (on a call rotation) providing out of hours support in case of a show stopping issue.
