Job Description

Buttercoin is seeking an experienced Dev Ops Engineer to start immediately. This would be a full-time on-site position at our office in downtown Palo Alto, though we might be open to a contract position with the right person.

Do you love branching, testing, and deploying code across multiple servers at a moment’s notice? Does the thought of migrating hundreds of thousands of database items in 10 tables across 5 machines get you excited? How about backups? And, more importantly, restoring those backups? Remotely? In the middle of the night? Are you a source management pro, with extensive experience using distributed version control systems (i.e Git, Mercurial, Subversion). How much do you know about large relational and NoSQL databases, and can you manage the internals of our systems, check load balances, and respond in the blink of an eye to automated messages about the state of these machines? All while managing risk  and delivering superior results?

If this sounds like a typical day in your dream job, then we’d love to hear from you! You should be a developer with some experience as a systems administrator, or a systems administrator with extensive programming knowledge, and have an extensive open source portfolio (a link to your GitHub profile is required, please include it in your response).
