We're a bunch of geeks who love building the most awesomest domain registrar on earth.
Dev/sysadmin/support engineer type person
Subhead (if needed): Come join the domain registrar that heaps (so many heaps) of people recommend on Twitter.
Fully remote, but we're specifically looking for people who have overlap with EU or N. American business hours.
You like solving problems and troubleshooting, and don't mind working on legacy code (not forever, but at least in the short-term). You also prefer working remote to working out of big team office because video chat is more than fine and asynchronous communication is better than meetings for most tasks anyways. You also know that successful asynchronous communicators are the best communicators, because writing your thoughts down in a clear way is a real skill. A skill you possess because you're secretly an awesome communicator.
iwantmyname is a small, completely remote domain registrar with people spread all over the globe (we're part of CentralNic now, so organizationally we're not nearly as small as we used to be, but we still have that small-team vibe).
Being a remote company in Covid-times isn't all that unique anymore, but unlike most companies still scrambling around trying to figure out how to run daily standups and whatnot over video chat, we generally have our processes figured out (the secret is to keep meetings to a minimum).
We're looking for a dev/sysadmin/support engineer type person. Someone who will absorb our code, quickly learn to troubleshoot and iterate, and help move us onto the platform of the future.
We'll also need you to be on our on-call schedule, which will include the occasional weekend shift for server infrustructure and applications (expect maybe 1-2 calls/week).
Here's the skillset we're looking for:
- solid written and spoken English
- perl + catalyst (minimum 5 years s/w)
- general web tech (HTML templating, JSON, some CSS)
- familiarity with RESTful APIs and basic XML
- mid range UNIX sysadmin experience
- haproxy & ansible
- RabbitMQ and CouchDB
- Erlang or Elixir
- domain industry experience
Think you're a good fit? We'd love to hear from you. Just send us an email at [email protected] with the subject line, iwantthatdevjob.
