DevOps Engineer Medialets
You'll be responsible for keeping our existing systems available and working with us towards driving scalability as the business continues to grow. As a member of our infrastructure team, you will focus on the high availability and total uptime of our product and development operations. This is more than just an OS level position. You will be hands-on with our custom applications, application services (in C++, Java, Scala, nodejs, Ruby, Python) and other backend systems including Hadoop, Cassandra, ZooKeeper, Kafka, PowerDNS, OpenLDAP, OpenSSL, FreeS/WAN, Haproxy, Jetty, MySQL and many more open source projects.
We are looking for someone to take ownership of the existing production environment and to provide new innovative solutions. We need to build and scale rock-solid web automated systems that run analytics and advertising for connected devices on a daily basis. Our clients expect us to lead and we work hard to deliver a phenomenal end user experience, and reliable, timely interactions at scale. You'll have the opportunity to engage with, teach and learn from many experienced engineers working on emerging mobile, analytics, data processing, and ad serving platforms.
Specifically, you will be working in production, shakedown, staging, user acceptance testing and integration testing for all of our systems. Those systems includes trafficking, reporting and advanced analytics, creative management, workflow, social interactions and a host of other capabilities that make our system the #1 third-party ad server in mobile.
Performance analysis, testing, tuning and production support will also be a significant responsibility in your job - with our large transactional volume, every last bit of performance counts. You should be able to step back and look at a problem in a different light to identify an approach that improves performance while not overly complicating the solution.
You?ll work daily with our engineering and infrastructure teams to keep the flow of software moving from concept through operations. Some of that will require configuring and managing software development systems, and some of it will require being hands-on with production systems. It?s important that you work well on a team, that you?ve been in the trenches working with high transaction volume environments, and that you can be adaptable in a market and technology sector that?s changing at a tremendous pace.
You are an expert in Bash and automation with scripting. You know when, and why, to use a 10 line bash script or a python/perl/ruby script with modules.
You have knowledge and experience in Python, Ruby and Enterprise Java. Software engineering needn?t be your core skillset, but you fully grok what it takes to build great software.
You have diverse experience in monitoring, trending, configuration deployment management and virtualizations with software like nagios, ganglia, graphite, chef and KVM.
You have worked closely with development teams while also managing production systems.
You have plenty of experience working with custom developed applications (deploy/release/etc) in a SaaS environment.
You must know CentOS or RedHat. Or not care that we do.
You classify your daily interpersonal interactions by their position on the OSI stack.
You?re well aware that protocols may have multiple behaviours (DNS client calls switch from udp to tcp when they reach a certain size for example) and why that might be important.
Of course you have strong attention for detail but you keep things simple. When you do shave, you exclusively use Occam?s razor.
You?re not a hardware or a software person: you?re a systems person. You get the end-to-end complexity of how systems are built, either in the cloud or on real iron (e.g. pxe, dhcp, tftp, http).
