We are looking for someone to help us develop, build, and maintain our growing global infrastructure for WordPress VIP and it's clients. Our Engineers help some of the world’s most prominent organizations use WordPress at scale.
This is a real-time traffic map. Each color represents an Automattic data center.
We are a globally distributed team and where you live doesn’t matter.
Bonus points if you can guess which city each color represents on the map above and tell us the methodology you used to figure it out. If you have some time and want to learn more about how we do things, watch this ScaleConf video.
This role is highly varied, from systems development, to performance tuning and infrastructure monitoring. You'll be working on the Ops-side, deploying, monitoring and defending, but also on the Development side - architecting, building and deploying.
If you’re passionate about performance, reliability, and serving billions of web requests per day, we’re excited to chat with you. Some technologies we are currently using: Docker, Nginx, PHP, MySQL, MongoDB, Node.js, Statsd, Graphite, Prometheus, Elasticsearch, Logstash, Hadoop, MogileFS, HDFS, and BGP just to get started.
