Work and Coworkers
You will be regarded as a responsible and reliable adult. We put a lot of trust in you and give you autonomy to do your job the best you can. You receive the training you need to do the job, then we set your goals and define your tasks together. After that you plan and organize yourself. You set your own work schedule. You work on days you want to and from where you want to. You tell us when you go on a vacation and for how long.
In the end you are judged on your results and how well you work with your peers. The same goes for your coworkers who are all A-players. If you need someone to always tell you what to do and how to do it, then it's best you find something else.
We do with as little hierarchy as possible. Founders are there to remove obstacles, help you be more efficient and not to look over your shoulder. No one has authority to say "do this because I said so". Everything is up for debate, no matter who says it. If the company is going in the wrong direction, it's everyone's responsibility to help steer it back.

We're looking for a pragmatic DevOps engineer to take on our current project, a fully automated hosting platform, and make it the best service possible. The project is a fully auto-pilot WordPress hosting, with automatic deployment, automatic updates of WordPress core, themes and plugins, backups, hacking protection and more. User simply enters a domain and (optionally) some WordPress settings inside our Python app, then the system deploys it in a matter of a minute or two. Deployment is fully automated with Apache Libcloud and Ansible -- we strive to never have to SSH into a server. At the moment we host more than 55k blogs on over 400 servers. Your job will be making sure these blogs stay online by fending off malicious traffic and figuring out what the unfortunate user of the day did to break his installation. There is a twist though: we are looking for someone who can recognize patterns in errors reported by users or server monitors and devise tools and mechanism to resolve them automatically the next time they occur. An ideal candidate would automate away most of his/her work, leaving plenty of time to read, attend conferences and try out new things.
You will get familiar with: Ansible, Fabric, HAProxy, Apache, WordPress.
