Systems Administrator

Sys Admin - San Francisco, California

 Bitnami is a Y-Combinator company on a mission to make open source software easy to use for everyone. Hundreds of thousands of people deploy more than a million applications and development environments every month with Bitnami technology. If you’re excited to see your work have a big impact, then consider joining Bitnami. 

We're looking for a systems administrator to join Bitnami and crank our systems to 11. As the first full-time sys admin at Bitnami, you can have a big impact on the technologies and processes that the company standardizes on today and in the future. We need someone who has a pulse on the latest and greatest IT practices and is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the work done. You will be working closely with the company's founders and engineers to scale the company's systems to meet the growing demand for Bitnami apps.

Responsibilities:

  • Maintain, secure and scale our web presence, including our main web site, Bitnami Cloud Hosting and related sites (support forum, wiki, etc)
  • Maintain and improve our automated build and testing environments
  • Implement security and backup best practices and policies
  • Install, troubleshoot, and maintain in-house and third-party applications for bug tracking, CRM and document management
  • Develop and maintain documentation for operating procedures

Requirements:

  • Significant experience managing production Linux environments
  • Experience in compiling, installing and troubleshooting open source server applications, including Apache, PHP, Tomcat, MySQL. We run a lot of Rails apps, so experience with running Rails apps would be great
  • Familiarity with Chef/Puppet or scripting based tools for automating system administration tasks a plus
  • Ability to communicate effectively in English
 
Life at Bitnami involves developing simple, yet elegant, solutions to complex technical problems, securing and optimizing applications for production, relentlessly automating everything and generally figuring out how to break applications – then put the pieces back together :). Because of our growing app library, our work crisscrosses dozens of operating systems, language runtimes and cloud and virtualization platforms. In short, we deal with all the complexity so our users don’t have to!

If working as part of an international team, shipping software that improves the lives of millions of users and learning the ins and outs of all the modern technology stacks excites you, consider joining the Bitnami team!

Location

We’d love it if you can join us in our San Francisco office, but we are open to having you work remotely, too.

Working at Bitnami

You will not be micromanaged here. Our hands-off style gives you plenty of space to work independently and figure out how to get things done, even if you’ve never done them before. And while we emphasize autonomy, you’ll always be given the support you need from the team.
