Nodejitsu is looking to hire a systems engineer with expert knowledge in Linux server administration and systems programming. At Nodejitsu, we deploy 100s of servers at a time in seconds from our node.js command line tools. We then monitor, manage, and heal these servers in real-time using...our node.js monitoring and deployment framework. We also write a lot of open-source software. see:

Now that we've had the time to build up our infrastructure, we need you to come in and start applying the UNIX philosophy to our systems. Your role will be to "own" our servers and work with the entire team to make sure our services always stay up. We are currently expanding our platform to become a utility provider agnostic system, and we'll need your expert systems programming knowledge to help facilitate integrating with cloud computing providers ( such as: Rackspace, AWS, Joyent, etc...) and setting up redundant dedicated environments across the globe.
