We're looking for a seasoned performance engineer. You know the
thrill and the terror of an unexpected traffic storm that's railed
your application. You think on your feet, adapt and make a genius
patch that let's your servers hold to see out the storm, then hit the
whiteboard to start architecting a solution that will handle the next
storm with ease.
You'll get to:
Work in an innovative space that is expanding into a billion dollar industry.
Design and implement large chunks of scalability features.
Help make key infrastructure decisions (databases, replication
layouts, caching solutions, etc.).
Experiment with the newest emerging open-source technologies.
Test your ideas and strategies out on millions of users and enormous
data sets. * Head up a small team of experienced engineers (if you are willing and able).
Have fun. Play ping pong, foosball, video games.
Eat. We buy your lunches.
Love python and can code it in your sleep.
Working knowledge of Linux, scripting, and SQL.
Understand when MySQL is great and experiment with NoSQL solutions (Memcached/Mongo/Redis/Cassandra)
Know how to put together a web-application stack. (We use Pylons/Paste.)
Enjoy bouncing ideas of your teammates to build up solutions no one person could of thought up himself.
Care about your implementations and find yourself compulsively checking that your latest experimental deploy is working the way you thought it would.
5+ years Python programming
Technical degree from a good program.
Competitive base salary
Equity (we've only taken in one round of funding)
$150/mth in commuter checks
$300/mth for food
Full benefits (medical, dental, vision, life)
