Your job.

Indeed's Production Operations team practices the idea of Resilience Engineering by building tools, systems, and environments to make Indeed’s technology stack more resilient to failure. We’re looking for a Senior Linux Systems Engineer with relevant hands on experience in the following technical responsibilities and extensive knowledge and experience in RHEL-based Linux Administration and Infrastructure Architecture to help build and maintain that infrastructure.

  • Administer F5 BIG-IP Load Balancers and manage iRules

  • Diagnose and remediate advanced Linux system performance and configuration issues utilizing tools like /bin/perf and strace

  • Evaluate new and heterogeneous types of hardware to improve performance and/or capacity

  • Provision physical and virtual servers, storage and new data center locations

  • Build out capacity plans, working with Operations and Engineering teams to identify and act upon capacity needs before fires start

  • Work autonomously, prioritizing multiple assigned projects with day-to-day operational responsibilities

  • Manage high volumes of nodes with configuration management tools such as Puppet or Ansible

  • Maintain and develop automation with glue languages such as Perl, Python, or Ruby

  • Design and implement improvements to production monitoring systems using tools like Nagios, InfluxDB and DataDog

  • Participate in an on-call rotation targeting areas of your expertise

  • Continue to grow your skill set while mentoring others


About you.

You have a cool head under pressure. When a technical fire occurs, you understand that putting it out should always avoid collateral damage. When you cause a fire (as everyone inevitably does), you take responsibility for it and work with the team to figure out the right way to put that fire out. Your believe blaming is a waste of time: when something goes wrong, you figure out why it happened and how to prevent it from happening again in the future. Better yet, you look for how things went right in the first place and improve upon those. 

  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, Computer Information Systems or equivalent experience
  • 8+ years of current DevOps, Production Engineering or Linux Systems Administration experience
  • 6+ Building & Maintaining Globally Distributed Production Linux Enterprise Environments
  • Multi-Cluster Virtualization Administration Expertise (Xen or KVM preferred)
  • Intermediate to Advanced experience with Configuration Management Tools
  • Advanced Experience in Diagnosing, Troubleshooting & Repair of Enterprise Servers
  • Seasoned in diagnosing kernel and library level issues
