We are looking for someone to take our mission-critical cloud infrastructure management system to the next level. This system will manage our mobile payments infrastructure cluster – it will orchestrate the provisioning, load balancing, dynamic configuration/re-configuration, monitoring and spend optimization of 50+ servers across data centers, availability zones and myriad other variables we haven't even thought of yet.


  • Take personal responsibility for the availability and reliability of our service.
  • Save the company a lot of money on infrastructure costs
  • Author tools that reliably manage infrastructure. We're looking for someone to write clean, re-usable code. Elegant OO code that’s simple.
  • Write maintainable code with extensive test coverage, working in a professional software engineering environment (with source control, dev/stage/prod release cycle, continuous deployment) .
  • We’ll need you to do most of your work in php or javascript, but you’re free to select other platforms, languages (java or grails) open source components for different pieces of the project.
  • Support our existing production cluster management system while you improve it. Our current system is put together in PHP/MySQL and leverages Amazon EC2, Node.js and a bunch other stuff.
  • Own our server image configurations, collaborating with engineers to optimize for task performance, reliability, failover and scale.


  • 4+ years of system administration with at least 4+ years of RHEL, CentOS, Ubuntu or Debian Linux experience
  • Broad experience in areas including networking, security, database, HA, and cloud systems
  • Experience working on critical, highly available production systems
  • Experience with mass systems deployments using puppet or other automated tools
  • Experience in developing scripting and automation
  • Take pleasure in solving complex technical problems, and learning new technologies
  • Have experience working with cross-functional teams to develop enterprise solutions
  • Approach problem solving with the goal of finding the root cause and documenting the solution
  • Meticulous attention to detail and strong organization skills
  • Experience in online, ecommerce, or web/cloud solutions companies strongly preferred

Bonus Qualifications

  • You’ve written software tools to manage 50+ servers.
  • You are conversant in the pros and cons of different clouds: EC2, slicehost, rackspace, etc.
  • You've investigated with other projects trying to do similar things (rightscale, cloudcake, opscode).
  • You’ve made a substantial contribution to a widely used open source project.
  • You read up on and experiment with new technologies because it’s in your nature, not because it’s a job requirement.
  • You don’t just learn how things work, you learn why.
  • Formal training in computer science (bachelors, masters, whatever)

We will provide a competitive salary, benefits, and a performance-driven sales commission and/or profit sharing. We will also award significant equity in the Company in the form of stock options. We provide generous vacation and personal time off benefits, as well as a comfortable workplace environment.
