Some fun facts about DealDash:
We believe in:
DealDash is looking for a System Administrator to be part of our product team. Main responsibility of system administrators is to ensure that our website (http://www.dealdash.com) stays online and responsive, 24/7. Team is very autonomic and decision making about technologies and future projects is on our own hands.
We also provide development and testing environments for those who need it (mostly developers). To ensure the company’s future success, we’re working on some very interesting projects such as native mobile apps for our customers, automating server deployments and configurations, virtualization, Docker containers, etc.
Our environment runs on top of CentOS Linux. Other relevant parts of our stack are web app built with PHP, hosted with nginx + php-fpm. Our data storages are Percona XtraDB Galera Cluster (MySQL), memcached and Redis.
We expect you to have strong experience on maintaining *nix environments and hunger to learn more. Good communication and documentation skills in English are required. Previous programming experience is a plus. You can work remotely like most of our team, but in return we expect you to be proactive (we hate micro management as much as you do). Also you need to travel regularly to team get-togethers. For example last year our team spent two weeks on villa in Mallorca, Spain (pool and chef included).
Our offices are located in Minneapolis, MN, USA and Helsinki, Finland.
New applications for System Administrator position will be reviewed next time beginning of July. Thanks for your patience!
