Google Inc.
Senior Systems Administrator/Architect, Google.com (SRE)

Positions available in:  Mountain View, CA; New York, NY; Kirkland, WA;
Dublin, Ireland; and Zurich, Switzerland
.	Are you a detail-oriented systems professional, seasoned Unix
jockey, Internet services architect, database whiz, performance analyst, or
software 
      engineer, at the top of your game? 
.	Looking for the next cool problem to solve, in a fast-paced and
engineering-driven environment? 
.	Can you write a script or application that performs practically the
entire job you once held earlier in your career? 
.	Does your idea of a good time involve taking things apart just to
see how they work? Are you successful putting them back together when you're
done? 
.	Can you help achieve increased Availability, Reliability, Uptime,
and Quality? (for our systems and services, naturally) 


If you answered "Yes" to more than three of the above questions, you may
have what it takes. Keep reading. 

Google.com Engineers are involved in all aspects of running our site. From
design to debug, from architecture to applications, Google.com engineers
spend their time troubleshooting problems in large-scale clustered
application service environments, and focus on making continual improvements
to our services. 

Working for Google.com, you will wear many hats: performance analyst,
service architect, system/database administrator, capacity planner, tools
developer, monitoring expert, and technical evangelist, for all components
of Google.com's services. 

This position requires a passion for problem solving, deep understanding of
networks, operating systems, multi-tiered Internet services, and the ability
to learn new applications and concepts quickly. Strong scripting skills are
essential. 

Requirements: 
.	3+ years experience in Unix or Linux Systems Administrator. 
.	Experience in a high-volume or critical production service
environment. 
.	Strong understanding of networking; understanding of how to isolate,
diagnose, and resolve service delivery components (service delivery
components 
      include servers, networks, and applications); be familiar with the
functionality, operating, and failure modes of key networking devices
(routers, 
      switches, bridges, firewalls, hardware load balancers); be able to
identify networking as the potential cause of a service issue using server-
      resident tools to generate this data (tcpdump, ping, traceroute,
etc.); familiarity in interpreting the output of these tools; familiarity
with 
      common network topologies, protocols, and tools; have some notion of
common network security exploits -- and their remedies; understanding of 
      troubleshooting at the packet level. 
.	Skilled in leading projects, especially in deploying live end-user
systems. 
.	Proven technical troubleshooting experience. 
.	Database administration experience a plus. 
.	Programming or debugging of web applications running under Java VM. 
.	In-depth knowledge of Linux, networking, and shell scripting. 
.	Knowledge of Python programming a plus. 
.	Experience with MySQL a plus. 
.	Programming and troubleshooting skills in C/C++ and/or Java a plus. 
.	Excellent written and verbal communication skills. 
.	Ability to handle periodic on-call duty as well as out-of-band
requests. 
.	BA/BS in Computer Science or a related technical discipline.
