We need an experienced Linux systems administrator to help our clients — progressive groups like MoveOn.org, Democracy for America and BoldProgressives.org — change the face of politics.
You will be responsible for deploying new applications and machines, building tools to improve the performance of our deployments, and responding to (and eliminating!) on-call alerts. We manage our own and our clients’ growing infrastructure of 30 physical servers and 50-60 virtual machines.
You must have experience managing production server clusters.  You should also be familiar with most or all of these technologies: CentOS/RHEL, Perl, Python, Django, Subversion, MySQL, memcached, monitoring systems like Nagios or Ganglia, configuration management tools like Chef, and virtualization layers like Xen.  You also need to know network configuration and equipment: firewalls, routers, load balancers, and the like.
You must be a self-starter, capable of taking a project from start to finish without constant direct supervision.
You need to be able to communicate clearly with your colleagues and clients via email, IM and phone.
This is a full-time contract position.
