This probably involves relocation, though it's not unheard of for Yahoo to let people work remotely. Let me or Charles know if you're interested.

- Date: Thu, 22 May 2008 18:20:05 -0700Hey guys, my team currently has several openings for service engineers (think systems administrator/package build/release). My team is responsible for keeping www.yahoo.com, my.yahoo.com, buzz.yahoo.com, in.glue.yahoo.com, Yahoo Toolbar, a backend data mining system, and a few others up and running smoothly. We're responsible from the application stack and up. Yahoo has an awesome production operations team that takes care of racking hardware, running wires, replacing bad disks, etc.. We take care of installing any required software bits like apache, mysql, etc.. and packaging and installing our sites software stacks. We're also responsible for setting up and maintaining the monitoring of the sites, and working directly with the software developers to ensure what they build is quality and easy to maintain, with extremely high availability and operational performance. We dont just eat tickets and execute request, we're deeply involved in the site architecture and have strong input on how things should be done. To that end im looking for candidates who understand how to drive gdb, strace, ktrace, can debug from the PHP layer down into the network stack. Folks who believe that when there is a problem you work to understand exactly why the problem occured, and drive it to permanent resolution, not people who think a reboot is the solution. Folks who can look at a site architecture and point out where all the potential points of failure are, and come up with clean, simple solutions to remove them. Most of the systems in my team are running BSD with a few RHEL boxes here and there. I currently have openings in our London & Sunnyvale offices, so if your interested please fire me a copy of your resume and we'll go from there!
