The Position

Site5 is seeking a full-time, mid-level Systems Engineer with Ruby on Rails experience. The chosen candidate will be working from home with a small group of top-notch, highly knowledgeable developers who are passionate about their code. One of the primary Ruby on Rails projects you would be working on, GLaDOS, enables staff to perform tasks that would normally require a systems administrator. For this reason, a strong background in systems administration is required. Here are a few examples of the types of tasks it can perform over SSH and HTTP:

  • Enabling shell access for a user on a given server
  • Adding firewall rules
  • Changing the IP for an Apache VirtualHost (via WHM API)

There are many additional features we would like to add to an already great system. While GLaDOS would be your primary focus, there are a number of other applications that are in the pipeline. Most of the projects will deal with abstracting server administration into an easy to use web interface for either customers or staff members. You can read more about our projects at http://www.eng5.com.

Site5 is a well-established company with more than 10 years of experience in the web hosting industry and more than 350,000 websites hosted.
