Automattic

Systems Wrangler

We are looking for someone to help us develop, build, and maintain our growing global infrastructure. Real-time traffic map below. Each color represents an Automattic data center.

Currently serving users from 9 locations on 3 continents and hoping to double that in the next year.

If you’re passionate about performance, reliability, and serving billions of web requests per day, let’s chat. Some technologies we are currently using: Docker, Nginx, PHP, MySQL, MongoDB, Node.js, Statsd, Graphite, Elasticsearch, Logstash, Hadoop, MogileFS, HDFS, and BGP just to get started.

We are a globally distributed team and where you live doesn’t matter, but we are specifically looking for someone who can work US business hours (9AM-5PM PST/EST).

Bonus points if you can guess which city each color represents on the map above.
