Systems Engineer

Recently our company has been putting a lot of effort into building a corporate infrastructure that would suit the needs of a medium-sized software development company. For us this endeavor involves deploying servers on virtualized platforms, managing physical and virtual networking, maintaining an automated CI environment, setting up private git repositories along with properly designed and implemented data backup solutions, as well as configuring basic instruments such as DHCP, DNS, LDAP, etc. We believe there is a right tool for each job, thus we are constantly expanding our toolchest.

Being one of the largest cloud cryptocurrency mining providers, we also require systems engineers expertise in building and managing medium- to large-scale mining facilities and data centers locally and abroad with all batteries included.

Because some work requires network configuration, we expect our candidates to be familiar with networking principles on the level similar to CCNA. We mostly run our systems on hypervisors, so having experience managing enterprise-grade virtualization platforms is what we are looking for in our applicants. Being confident in *nix system administration is a must in our environment, as most of our virtual and hardware servers run on Linux. Currently a strong focus is being put on automation, which means having previous experience in scripting and/or configuration management tools would help a lot. Finally, some work, such as specialized hardware integration falls strictly into the realm of R&D, which means this is a great opportunity to learn something new and advance in related technical subjects.

Specific responsibilities include

  • Server configuration and management
  • Investigation and follow-up contribution to solving various issues related to internal system environments, including computer network infrastructure
  • Proactive analysis and follow-up improvements to physical as well as virtual systems
  • Participation in architecture, design and implementation of medium- to large-scale data centers and mining facilities
  • Automation and integration scripting
  • Specialized hardware integration R&D
  • DevOps tools maintenance

Requirements

  • Higher education degree in Computer Science or related technical fields and 2+ years of work experience in a similar role and position
  • Ability to identify and critically analyze problems in given systems as well as propose and develop solutions independently
  • Experience with Linux operating systems (we mostly use Debian branch)
  • Experience with enterprise-grade hypervisor management systems (vSphere - our choice, XenCenter, OpenStack, etc.)
  • Networking experience equivalent to CCNA level
  • Previous programming experience in any scripting language (Python, Ruby, Bash, etc.)
  • Passion towards technological innovations and willingness to jump into unknown territories
  • Good spoken and written English

Beneficial (optional) skills

  • Experience in building enterprise infrastructure solutions
  • Familiarity with Agile development processes (we use Atlassian suite)
  • Knowledge about DevOps principles
  • Experience with Configuration Management tools (Ansible, Puppet, Chef, etc.)
  • Experience with any CI/CD tools (Jenkins, Bamboo, GitLab CI, etc.)
  • Experience with Amazon Web Services or other Cloud providers
  • Experience with Fortinet devices
  • Familiarity with Bitcoin, Ethereum or other cryptocurrencies
  • Good spoken and written Russian
