Job Description:

DevOps Engineer
Engineering | New York, NY

Description
In today’s world, the roles of DevOps and engineer have been highly intertwined. We believe all engineers need to be trained and proficient in DevOps just as all DevOps need to be trained as software engineers. In that way, the interplay between the two roles becomes more of team sport with comradery rather than a source of tension. We believe in automation and tools to do the boring mundane work, while we put our minds to more useful, fun and challenging tasks.
Not all problems should be solved with programs. You will choose between writing new software and scripting a solution in shell. You’ll pick the most appropriate technology for the problem you’re trying to solve. You’ll advise developers on the best ways to make their applications highly available and rebuild our production environment to make it more available, deployable, and globalized.

Responsibilities
Help provision, build, and maintain a high availability infrastructure to support multiple applications and services
Help analyze, troubleshoot, and allocate network resources
Assist developers in architecting distributed solutions
Assist developers in debugging network and infrastructure issues
Automate monitoring and alerts for system integrity, health, and security
Design, implement, and maintain disaster recovery solutions
Use automation and scripting whenever possible. Avoid the meat cloud!
Develop monitors and build alerts around error conditions and performance. You’ll seek root causes.

Desired Skills and Experience
Experience working in complex distributed systems
Experience dealing with high volumes of traffic both consistent and in spikes
Experience with tools like Puppet, Chef, Ansible, Jenkins and Fabric
Extensive experience with AWS, Rack Space Cloud, OpenStack, and other virtualization technologies
Proficient in multiple scripting languages including Bash, Zsh, Ruby, and Python
Proven experience managing some of the following: Redis, Memcached, ElasticSearch, Solr
Proven experience managing some of the following: MySQL, Postgres, Mongo, Cassandra
Proven experience managing some of the following: Nginx, Apache, Varnish
Strong Linux competence (cowsay and fortune)
Strong networking fundamentals, such as DNS, VPN, Network Protocols, Firewalls/IPTables
RDBMS DDL competency
Hands-on, self-starter

Nice to Have
Experience with Hadoop/HDFS
Some Java programing experience
Bachelors degree or higher (or equivalent experience).
Built and deployed Rails, Python, or Go Applications
Familiarity with Capistrano

Additional Skills Appreciated but Not Required
You can handle your own at ping pong
You have a strong opinion on the types of swag the company should be wearing
You enjoy building your own work setup (Mac/PC, big screens, Aerons, etc.) and getting the latest in tech gadgetry
