Examples of work recently undertaken by TellApart DevOps Engineers:

AWS autoscaling technology was rigid and didn’t provide the flexibility required to maintain our frontend instances. Conductor, a tool built at TellApart, wraps the AWS utilities and provides better scaling of our frontend servers, integration with cheaper spot instances, and launches daily releases of the repository
Our Hadoop cluster of several hundred machines had bad nodes once in a while that would slow down our daily reports. A monitoring daemon was installed to find and automatically remove these bad nodes from the cluster
Scribe is used to collect the logs from the production servers. Monit is now deployed in order to monitor, reap, and restart services like Scribe when they happen to die due to segfaults, or other reasons

Our data is unique, our platform is full of possibilities, and our business is booming. We are looking for motivated talent who want to take our technology and business to the next level and realize its full potential. If this sounds like your kind of environment, come join us at TellApart! Please apply and include any links to code samples (if possible/relevant).
