The Fluff

Do you regularly explain the differences between chef and puppet as configuration management solutions? Do you find yourself wishing your refrigerator had a REST API? Does the idea of installing an operating system from a CD make you uncomfortable? Do you routinely automate all the things? If so, you may be the person we're looking for! Cloudscaling is building agile infrastructure that scales for production environments. Our cloud management framework leverages existing systems automation and configuration management toolchains to provision, configure, and manage large-scale cloud infrastructures. We're looking for a passionate and talented engineer to join the team building this framework.

  • Ruby development experience (beyond RoR)
  • Experience with source code control and configuration management systems
  • Experience developing and implementing systems automation
  • 5+ years in software development and/or system administration
  • Expertise in UNIX/Linux, networking, and distributed systems
  • Good communications skills
  • Works well with others
  • Familiarity with cloud platforms and underlying technologies desired
  • Familiarity with IaaS cloud products a plus
  • Passionate about open-source software development
  • Experience in a startup environment is a plus
  • Experience in an agile development environment is a plus
