So in my present state I'm pretty independent if you don't count my personal assistant, maid, and assembler. But what I really need to do is hire someone who understands software, IE configuration of linux on our server builds with a good understanding of customer needs. A lot of my customers have some average in house capabilities and what I want to do is offer a better service to them while increasing some of my productivity bandwidth. What would be a fair salary to offer someone with these kind of skills? I deal primarily with OEMs, data centers, 3-4 letter agencies, and now a fair amount of individual gaming/workstation builds. My current adventures have me delving into taking a bite out of the electrical wholesaler monopolies by drop shipping automation products and now even getting into lighting for commercial projects. So they would also need to take a more leadership role in my organization. Now I'm wondering what's a good incentive to get someone for the long term? Preferably someone who can get security clearance. What should I pay Voat? What's a good linux administrator worth?
