We love technology and helping our customers — we get excited about computers and we love programming. We live to solve problems, code software, and make cool stuff happen. And, we love to share our creations with others.This has been our philosophy since Linode was launched in June of 2003 by founder Christopher S. Aker. Initial development took about 6 months. Linode was ahead of its time and helped define the cloud hosting industry, and continues to be a leader in virtualization hosting.
Now, we want the right people on our team who have both the aptitude and attitude necessary to succeed in the unique culture that we’ve developed over the last 10 years. Fitting into our culture is just as important as holding the skills for the job. We’re looking for a solid employer- employee relationship. Our interview process may seem extensive, but we’re making sure you’re a good fit for us while you make sure we’re a good fit for you!
We’ve invested heavily in being the kind of company that can set the bar for the cloud hosting industry: both through infrastructure and employing the right personnel. We have the best customer service out there and we’re passionate about making it even better. Our development, ops, hardware, marketing, documentation, and management teams are all part of making Linode everything it can be. This industry moves fast, but we’re committed to hiring the kind of people who can stay a step ahead and keep us - and themselves - at the top.
We are currently seeking a Network Engineer who will collaborate with the team on the engineering, design, configuration, installation, maintenance and upgrade of the Linode network, helping us architect and scale for our future growth.
