DevOps Developer

  • San Francisco, CA
  • Full-time

Company Description


Big Data?   How about a 200 GB Java heap?  Is that Big Data enough?  (No!)

How about 10+ TB of Java heaps spread across dozens of servers on two continents in our own data centers plus more in Amazon?  (Yes!)


Job Description


You are an exceptional Linux administrator who can work with others to run the network, applications and databases. Like the rest of the team, you are passionate about improving the systems through automation, monitoring everything and documenting your creations.

Is that you?  Read on!


More stuff about you:

  • We aren’t degree snobs.  If you know your way around a 24x7 Linux site, you probably didn’t learn that in school.
  • Can you code in perl, python, ruby or similar?  Know Chef?  Cisco?  Amazon EC2, S3, etc?
  • You take security seriously.  We do, too.
  • You like working on a team.  The pager rotates through the team and across continents so you know how important good documentation is.



You have solid experience with:

  • Automation – We are moving from Puppet to Chef (and Cobbler) to manage our KVMs 
  • Programming in any of Ruby, Python, Perl, etc.
  • Data center management, replication, scaling
  • Metrics and monitoring – writing custom tools and familiar with open source options
  • Linux administration (the ops side of devops) – dns, nfs, rpm, apache, raid, etc.

Good if you’re familiar with:

  • Multi-data center management, replication, scaling
  • Mysql – replication, backups, some light querying
  • Networking – Switches, routers, firewalls, vpn, etc
  • Managing Java applications – but not necessary to know how to write in Java
  • Amazon EC2
