Yelp Inc.: Systems Infrastructure Developer

Posted by | May 18, 2012 | Web Pro Job Tips


Location: San Francisco


Our Systems Infrastructure Developers are the primary interface between
our developers and our production operations.  No matter how many times
we get searched, scraped, scanned, spammed, pinged, paged or queried,
they gotta keep their cool – and keep the site running smoothly.
 You’ll work in both the dev and systems worlds, instrumenting key
parts of core architecture and supporting devs as they try to do the
same.  We’re looking for a true hacker – you’ll work as much in bash as
Python, and you’ll drop into some C now and then.  You’ll implement
monitoring and alerting systems to support site stability and
performance. You’ll proactively scale our infrastructure to meet
ever-increasing demand.  You’ll make sure that when something goes bump
in the night, someone hears it.  And you’ll play a key role in keeping
Yelp fast, available and growing.
