Ushahidi is a fast-paced, boundary-pushing team of designers and developers positioned around the world and we're looking to hire a talented system administrator to join our growing team.
Ideally, you've managed servers professionally for at least five years and are comfortable managing an array of servers for small to medium-sized companies. You'll be able to provide maintenance on our current set of Rackspace, Digital Ocean and some AWS servers, review and implement optimizations for performance, and handle regular audits for performance and consolidation.
You will also have experience provisioning servers and deploying code using tools like Puppet, Chef, Ansible or Salt. We've been manually setting up servers to date with various ad-hoc setups. You will come on and help us standardize and automate server configs, making life easier for devs, make the servers more stable for clients and more secure for everyone's peace of mind.
