Systems Engineer

at Kixeye in San Francisco, CA   —   Apr 06, 2014   |  
Kixeye is looking for a few good Systems Engineers to help us scale our social gaming platform to even larger sizes. We’re growing quickly, and we’re in need of extra hands to help us scale to the hundreds or thousands of machines that we’ll be running to keep our games the fastest and most reliable for our customer base. We’re based in San Francisco, and we prefer candidates who are able to be in the office for the intense and complex interactions with the development, operations, and customer service staff who will be working in close cooperation to help us succeed.
What you get to do every day:
Manage and monitor hundreds of UNIX systems, and deploy new systems to add to the army
Maintain security, backups, and redundancy strategies to ensure gameplay continuity in the face of man-made attacks and normal hardware/network failures
Write and maintain custom scripts to increase system efficiency and lower the human intervention time on any tasks
Monitor and test application performance for potential bottlenecks, identify possible solutions, and work with developers to implement those fixes
Ensure projects move to production smoothly, create/assign issues to developers for issues that do occur in deployment
Help maintain our application cluster through capacity planning and monitoring with application of updates when needed
The ideal candidate is:
Obsessive-compulsive about knowing their stuff
Completely fascinated with the concept of running machines and systems that serve millions of users
Personally invested in the systems that they build
From a background in large database or gaming systems or similar markets
