    Pusher of Bits (Advanced Linux Administrator) in Seattle, WA

    Pusher of Bits (Advanced Linux Administrator)
    Posted: July 22, 2009. Target start date: ASAP.

    BitPusher is a small, rapidly growing web infrastructure company with offices in Seattle and San Francisco. We are seeking a creative, dynamic and highly responsible advanced systems administrator (SAGE level III) to be based in the Seattle office. BitPusher manages web servers, networks and other IT infrastructure, both owned by BitPusher and hosted elsewhere. We build long-term relationships with our customers and take the time to understand their applications, their technical needs and their business needs. We customize things as required to meet those needs, but we also keep things as standard as we can for reasons that we're sure you already understand.
    Do you like making order out of chaos? Are you always looking for ways to manage lots of servers more efficiently, and control the entropy that naturally occurs? Are you savvy with tools such as Nagios, Puppet and Capistrano? If so, let's talk.
    What you'll do at BitPusher:

    • Be the primary hands-on administrator for many of BitPusher's complex but (mostly) thoughtfully-deployed administrative tools, including Nagios, Puppet, Cacti, rsnapshot and others
    • Perform hands-on administration of customer servers
    • Help make "grunt work" disappear by improving our automation and integrating more systems and components into Puppet
    • Participate in our on-call rotation
    • Interact with customers, mostly via e-mail and tickets but sometimes via phone or IM
    • Work with colleages who are intelligent, experienced and friendly

    What you won't do at BitPusher:
    • Deal with bureaucracy or other artificial impediments to getting things done
    • Have good ideas that no one listens to
    • Be bored

    Requirements and Qualifications:
    • 4+ years of production systems administration experience in a Linux/UNIX environment , including at least 2+ years focused on web-based services
    • Substantial experience with open source tools for configuration management, monitoring and remote administration
    • Highly organized and responsible
    • Extensive experience with performance analysis and tuning for web-based applications
    • Scripting experience in Perl, Ruby or Python

    Please contact us by e-mail only. Please send resumes to [email protected]
