Emma is a successful digital marketing service that helps businesses and organizations of all sizes connect with their audiences and tell their story. Powering the emails of more than 45,000 clients, Emma is known for elegant, easy-to-use tools and the very best customer service. Oh, and funky glasses.

We are currently on the lookout for a Linux Systems Administrator with a heavy focus on DevOps skills to join our infrastructure team. This team manages the physical and virtual systems and networks that Emma runs on. In this role, you'll be responsible for maintaining and growing Emma's infrastructure and systems, and you'll play a crucial role in how the team manages Emma's core programs and processes.

If you're our ideal candidate, you have 5 or more years of experience building and managing Linux systems (we use Ubuntu and RHEL) in a highly available and scalable environment. You also have extensive experience using Amazon Web Services, since it plays a big role in our future infrastructure plans.

Here are some things we'd like to see in your experience:
  • sysctl
  • Apache/Ngnix
  • BIND
  • load balancing
  • databases
  • backup and recovery
  • monitoring and performance tuning
  • scaling
  • networking basics
  • loom weaving
  • ha, we're kidding
  • but that would be cool
In addition to experience with AWS (S3, EC2, Route53, Cloudfront, RDS, SQS, Elasticache, and VPC), we'd love to see experience with F5 BigIP LTM products, Python/mod_wsgi, PostgreSQL, statsd/graphite, Zenoss, Redis, memcache, logstash, elasticsearch, Bacula and other interesting technologies with which we may not yet be familiar. You'll be interested in engineering process, continuous integration/deployment, event driven architecture and the tools that make it all happen (e.g. Bamboo, Vagrant, Packer, Saltstack, queueing platforms, etc.) since you'll help put it all together with your sweet Python and bash coding skills.

You'll work proficiently and closely with other senior engineers on daily basis, be highly resourceful and serve as a point of contact for questions and issues escalated from other groups within Emma. Candidates in Nashville, TN are preferred.
