Senior Systems Engineer / Administrator – New Infrastructure Design and Development

This is an outstanding opportunity for the seasoned systems professional to work with the latest technology on a daily basis across many platforms and environments. In this multifaceted role you will design, build and administer systems and tools for our data warehousing, engineering, testing, cloud, virtualized and corporate environments.

Deep knowledge with Linux (Ubuntu preferred), Windows 2008, VMware, network architecture (VPN, firewalls, routers, load balancing etc.), cloud hosting, storage and/or security will give you the foundation needed to succeed. Specific experience building automation software for systems (Chef / Puppet / Python), and experience with configuration management and DevOps will push your resume to the top.

We have added significantly to our staff in recent months and have an aggressive project roadmap for the upcoming year so this is a great opportunity to design new products and systems from the ground up and not have to deal with a lot of legacy code. Our systems serve up millions and millions of page views a day and you will play a critical role in designing and administering scalable, high-availability systems that will keep ahead of our rapid growth.

Based in our Sebastopol, CA headquarters (1 hour North of San Francisco in beautiful Western Sonoma County) you will have the opportunity to expand your skill set and have a high level of autonomy in our relaxed but innovative environment. Our engineering team is a group of life-long learners that is not married to a particular technology, methodology or job description, instead we encourage innovation, exploring the latest technology for elegant, efficient solutions, and tackling and solving all technical challenges. If this sounds like an environment and role in which you would thrive then please submit your resume for consideration. A complete HR job description will be forwarded to qualified candidates.
