Sr Python Developer - Openstack Keystone Job - Remote

Do you enjoy tackling new and unusual problems everyday? Do like the flexibility of working from home? Do the words cloud computing, OpenStack, Keystone, identity management, ReSTful APIs, python, continuous integration and delivery, scalability, availability, and 100% uptime get you excited! If so, keep reading.

OpenStack is a collection of open source technologies delivering a massively scalable cloud operating system. It is one of the fastest growing open source projects in the industry. As the identity management component of OpenStack, Keystone provides the authentication and authorization service that powers the open cloud. People involved with OpenStack’s Keystone are solving some of the most pressing problems in our industry such as how to scale cloud services, create an extensible policy framework, implement multi-factor authentication, and solve federated identity. Rackspace is one of the leading sponsors of OpenStack and we are actively building teams to work as Keystone contributors. Ideal candidates are passionate advocates of technology and open source. We're looking for people who don't just use these tools and services, but people that write them. It is one thing to start a virtual machine on a host, it is another to have the curiosity to read the source code and figure out how it all works. We are looking to balance the -been there, done that- with the -why can't we do it that way?- mentality of thinking. The ability to challenge assumptions and conventions is important. Hands-on experience with some aspect of identity (authentication, authorization, federation, single sign-on, MFA, etc) is also highly desired.
