Job Description

This SaaS business provides an online advertising tracking and optimization platform used by 1,000s of small businesses to make important marketing decisions and ultimately grow their business online.

In this position your primary role will be as a Linux Systems and Database administrator, working alongside our current sysadmin to maintain, monitor and continually improve the performance and high-availability of our front-end, application and database servers.

Skills, Experience & Requirements

  • 5+ years Linux sysadmin (we use CentOS)
  • 5+ years Apache/Nginx (we also use mod_perl, lua and OpenResty)
  • 5+ years MySQL DBA (we use Percona MySQL)
  • 5+ years Perl scripting/development
  • You will be 50% of our on-call rotation

While the primary current requirement is that of a systems and database administrator, there's also lots of opportunity to expand into other areas as well including backend development/DevOps.

We're still a small team. You must be self-motivated and eager to work independently from your location. If you need a boss watching over you cracking the whip, someone to review everything you do, or you’re a social butterfly, then I'm sorry but this is definitely not for you.

Ridiculous attention to detail is a must, and you should also be reliable to a fault.

While you'll be able to work from home, your favorite coffee shop or anywhere else you want, ideally we're looking for someone in the Austin, TX area. All applications will be considered, but if you're in the Austin, TX area or willing to relocate to this fabulous city that will be a HUGE plus.

About the Company

This is not your average startup, and this is not your average sysadmin job.

We've been in business over 5 years and we have close to 10,000 paying customers and have never spent a penny on advertising. Customers love the product, we are set for significant growth, and potential acquirers have already started to express interest in the company.

While we don’t offer a matching 401k or health insurance, we do offer an above-average starting salary, the opportunity to make a lot more than you’re used to via profit sharing and/or equity, and something even better – no corporate BS or politics, and the freedom to do your thing.

If you’re sick of the corporate rat-race and want to work remotely from anywhere you want, set your own hours, work directly with the founder who has built 10+ profitable web businesses since 1997, and want to be truly valued and rewarded for what you bring to the team, we’d love to hear from you.

Starting salary negotiable depending on skills, experience and how awesome you are.
