Job Description

Operations Engineer

You think a small server cluster is 1000 machines. You found the Mandelbrot set in a network capture last week. You could have scaled Twitter -- without the Fail Whale.

Come help Hangtime craft a fast and beautiful systems infrastructure!

You’ll be teaching our Storm and Cassandra clusters to fly, crafting powerful tools, and conspiring with our world-class engineering team to make code happy in production.
