Understands the basics of TCP/IP.

Here's some recent work that DevOps has done:
Began transitioning from ISO-88601 to UTF-8.
Built a deployment system based on Git, Buildbot, and Puppet.
Worked with developers to improve database query performance.
Setup Cacti monitoring for a new service.
Transitioned some SVN repositories to Git.
Setup an InnoDB backup system.
Created a new file storage system for > 1 petabyte of data.

You're a great fit for us if you:
Have experience with Puppet, Cacti, and/or other cluster management software.

Have used compilers/linkers/build tools.
Know how to use strace, gdb, tcpdump, etc.
