Job Description

DeviantART was created to entertain, inspire, and empower the artist in all of us and today is the leading destination on the Internet for creativity and the arts.  Our DevOps team is small and for leverage, we automate as much as possible and build tools when they don't already exist.

You'll be working directly with a few other senior DevOps engineers. You will not have to report to any non-engineer managers. We use Phabricator for task tracking and code review of everything we do.

  • Understands the basics of TCP/IP.
  • Has experience with Git.

Here's some recent work that DevOps has done:

  • Built a deployment system based on Git, Buildbot, and Puppet.
  • Virtualized a large amount of our infrastructure with KVM.
  • Migrated from Cacti to Graphite.
  • Rolled out an Elasticsearch + Logstash + Kibana cluster for log analysis.
  • Worked with developers to improve database query performance.

We enjoy looking at code samples. Please include links to your github account, etc.

This position is open to both US and non-US residents. We like telecommuters and offer flexible work schedules!

Salary/Benefits:  DeviantART offers a competitive salary and major medical benefits.
