* collaborate with some of the leading minds in distributed systems

The candidate should be familiar with Linux, including the following:

* Various distros and their corresponding package management tools
* Permissions and permissions management
* File System partitioning, formatting, and mounting
* System logging and auditing
* Log parsing using grep, awk, sed, cut, tr, etc
* Remote access via ssh
* Knowledge of procfs & sysfs
* Linux tools (ip, ifconfig, netstat, tcpdump, strace, netcat, ping, telnet, etc)
* System Monitoring Tools (top, *stat tools, etc)
* DNS and tools (bind, host, dig, nslookup, etc)
* Runlevel management tools (systemd, rc.d, inittab, chkconfig, etc)

The candidate should also be familiar with generic development tools and best practices:
