Ksplice is the leading technology that allows administrators to
patch the critical components of a Linux system on the fly with zero
downtime and zero disruption. We're a distributed team of engineers
forming part of the Linux and Virtualization group at Oracle with a
passion for working on exciting technology, software craftmanship
and all things Linux.
We're looking for experienced DevOps and Systems professionals to join
As a DevOps engineer, you would be responsible for automating the
deployment, monitoring, and day-to-day management of Ksplice's
infrastructure for building and serving critical security "hot fix"
updates for various flavors of the Linux kernel and for user space
applications. Our customers depend on us to keep their systems
up-to-date and secure, so we would depend on you to make sure our
systems stay running and secure. Ksplice has a rich infrastructure that
utilizes virtualization heavily. We are looking for somebody who can
help us take that infrastructure and modernize it. If you take pride in
crafting software, don't rest until you full understand complex problems
and are curious about what happens on the layer below then Ksplice will
be of interest to you. You'll like working at all levels of a Linux
system, developing tooling in Python, building distributed systems and
solving difficult problems at each layer.
While some day-to-day system administration will be required, this is
primarily a development role. As such, strong programming skills and
an understanding of how to automate system tasks are required. Ksplice
uses primarily Python, so experience with that is preferred, but
experience with any similar language to perform system administration
automation is acceptable.
The Oracle Ksplice team is a remote team, so you must be comfortable
interacting remotely and working autonomously. We are a small team that
expects its members to be comfortable with self-directed work. We won't
micro-manage you, but, in return, we expect you to learn your job well
enough that you know what is important to work on.
Skills and experience required:
Automation using configuration management using software such as ansible, puppet, chef, etc.
Administration of Linux systems.
Knowledge of Linux virtualization best practices.
Command of using programming for systems automation. Python is strongly preferred, but similar languages are acceptable.
Ability to work autonomously to achieve provided goals.
Additional skills and experience desired:
Deployment and management of systems using cloud infrastructure such as Oracle Cloud, AWS, Rackspace, etc.
Monitoring complex environments using e.g. nagios.
Deploying and managing MySQL with high availability.
Experience working remotely and/or working with a remote team.
