This is a part-time/contract job. We're working hard to run our business profitably so we can be around for a long time, so we take small steps as we hire.

  • Troubleshoot system issues (such as high-load, memory, CPU usage, deadlocks, etc.) and come up with temporary/long-term solutions based on the root cause
  • Ensure proper security, monitoring, alerting and reporting for the infrastructure
  • Troubleshoot issues across the whole stack: hardware, software, and network
  • Document current and future procedures, configuration and policies in the wiki

What we need from you...
  • Deep understanding of the Linux operating system
  • Experience managing a Postgres production cluster in a high i/o environment
  • Familiarity with the internals of Postgres
  • Experience working in a big data setting (TBs of data)
