A good grasp of typical scalability and system administration issues frequently encountered in enterprise environments.

A fairly thorough understanding of Linux and how it works.
Experience with Java programming.
Knowledge in using any of the typically available text editors (e.g. vi, emacs), as well as the Eclipse IDE.
