Verizon Media Group
Tumblr launched in 2007 with the belief that people need a place to say what they want, be who they want, and connect over what they love. We continue to build out Tumblr as a platform for free expression, individuality, and human connection. That's why we need smart, humble, funny people to keep Tumblr growing. We're big enough to give you the resources you need and still small enough that you can work on things that matter. Come work with us.
What You'll Do:
* Architect Tumblr's rapidly expanding infrastructure
* Test and tune network, hardware, and software configurations to maximize performance
* Create tools and infrastructure used by the rest of the Tumblr engineering teams
* Manage the availability, scalability, and performance of Tumblr platforms
* Guide Tumblr's engineering teams to keep new features fast and stable
What We're Looking For:
* Experience scaling high-traffic distributed systems
* Experience administering a large number of Linux servers in multiple data centers
* Smarts, humility, and equal willingness to learn and teach
Tools We Like:
* Kubernetes, Docker, Puppet
* Ruby, Go, Scala, PHP
* Varnish and HAProxy
* Hadoop, Flink, Spark, Druid
* MySQL (InnoDB), Memcached and Redis
* Asynchronous services and queues like Dkron and Gearman
From art to music to dank memes to social justice, we're proud to serve all the subcultures that call Tumblr home, and even more proud of the impact they have on the world. No matter what team you work on here, you'll be working to give our users a voice, and to make that voice heard far and wide.
If you're a performance hound who isn't afraid of impossible challenges - or is afraid and will prepare accordingly, come work with us!
