The candidate is to be

The candidate is to be familiar with the Linux OS. But most of the volunteers use Windows PCs. How do you run a Linux program on a Windows PC? You use a Virtual Machine, like CERN has done. So maybe the the candidate should know also something about Virtual Machines.

Nope, we just cross-compile on Linux :-)

A significant amount of the work to be done concerns the project and back-end servers. These are all Linux systems, as are many of the code-building and development systems.

I am a Linux user myself,

I am a Linux user myself, having been a UNIX system administrator at Trieste Area Science Park in the Nineties. But, having bought a HP PC with Windows 8, updated to 8.1 and to Windows 10, I am running three CERN projects on it using Virtual Box. Maybe I shall install on it a Linux Virtual Machine when SuSE releases the Leap version 42.1 next November. CERN projects use Scientific Linux, which is Red Hat plus some CERN libraries.
