Description

Automattic is the company behind WordPress.com, WordPress.com VIP, Akismet, Intense Debate, Gravatar, Polldaddy, Simplenote, and more. We're focused on making the web a better place.

We're also a 100% distributed company: everyone works from their own home or office, and we’re spread out all over the world — California, Texas, New York, Canada, Ireland, Japan, Iceland, Bulgaria, Australia, and more. We track about 70% of our projects on P2-themed WordPress.com blogs, 25% on private IRC channels, and the rest on Skype—no email! Because of the geographic variance, we’re active pretty much 24/7. We care about the work you produce, not just the hours you put in.

We’re committed to providing the fastest and most reliable web experience out there, which means eliminating as many single points of failure as possible. We currently support 2,000+ machines in a dozen data centers and are looking for great developers to help us solve complex problems related to performance, security, and scaling.

If you have the following qualities, you should apply:

  • Experience in systems administration and a deep understanding of how the basic web-related services operate (load balancers, high availability solutions, web servers, databases, caching daemons, etc.) work.
  • Great programming skills and good knowledge of both scripting and compiled languages (especially PHP, C, and Bash). Kernel space programming experience is a plus.
  • Previous experience programming on Linux. Must understand things like processes management, memory management, operating with sockets, and writing highly optimized code.
  • Ability to handle all phases of a project on your own, from idea to implementation.
  • Well versed in the best security and performance practices both with web and systems applications.
  • Great troubleshooting skills. Must be able to take big problems and break them down into manageable pieces with elegant solutions.
