About the Job:|
You are good at what you do, like it, and know TCP/IP and networking in general really well. You've mastered your current environment and everything is rock solid- it's time for your next challenge.
You yearn to work in a team environment where you'll get exposure to scale and other awesome people to learn from. Here's what we have to offer:
Per month: 5 billion page views, 20+ million visitors, 3 petabytes downloaded. Traffic grew 10x smoothly in the past 2 years.
Per second: 30,000 dynamic content requests, 20,000 static content requests, 25,000 DB requests and 1M+ memcached requests.
Hardware: 1000+ co-located servers, page builds often touch 100 machines and average response time is 128 milliseconds.
Network Devices: Cisco, InterNap, Citrix
You'll share accountability for guaranteeing uptime - and the pager, must be a BGP enthusiast. Occasional off hour calls are going to happen, and that's fine.
You know what TCP/IP is, what the difference between TCP and IP are, and how the Internet works.
You are comfortable learning your way around new devices.
Your innate curiosity drives you to learn above and beyond the things you need to know for your job.
You have extensive experience with network management & monitoring.
You have understanding of things like security fundamentals, network topology and IP protocols and other stuff in and around what you do.
Troubleshooting is a core part of your mental make up. You have the communication skills and technical ability to get to the root of issues efficiently - and you've always been this way. You are a quick study.
You've been on-call and it doesn't bug you. You've worked in at least one unstable environment and know how to "power through" to get things stable - so that problems don't wake you up at odd hours. You are a problem solver.
You work well with a team of like minded individuals. You enjoy bouncing ideas off others and the net result is an even better idea.
Nice to Have:
Professional experience working with production high availability environments - if not, you are definitely going to get it here. You know not to wear clown shoes to the co-lo.
You've supported System Administrator and Engineers and you think they're cool people.
You've done some light hacking in your day, building simple websites and taking the time to understand software development so it's easier to work with those pesky software engineering types.
The words "Can you please help the DBA this week?" don't give you a rash.
You enjoy trying out new hardware and software to improve your environment.
