We’re hiring a senior MySQL and FreeBSD systems administrator to work at GreatSchools (a 40 person company) in San Francisco. If you or someone you know is interested in working on a high traffic website (1M page views per day) consisting of 18 FreeBSD servers, redundant load balancers, MySQL 5 with replication and so on send your resume to jobs-sysadmin at greatschools dot net. If you have a family or want quality of life and are interested in working a compressed week (4 days) or a reduced week (e.g. 32 hours) that’s a possibility too given the right candidate!
I live in San Francisco and am the Co-Founder of Two Bit Labs where we develop iPhone, iPad, and Android mobile apps for our clients. I love the mix of team leadership and working as a hands-on contributor. My technical passions include Swift, Kotlin, Ruby, Cloud Computing, and open-source software.
I also love to sail and my wife, daughter, and I sailed out the Golden Gate in 2007 on our 38 foot Hans Christian cutter (sailboat) on a 3 year cruise. Read about it at http://sailsugata.com.
