We are seeking a bright and resourceful individual for our Production Engineering team based out of the firm’s office in Hyderabad, India. This team is responsible for the day-to-day operational support and stability of our highly complex infrastructure setup. The team also plays a major part in designing and delivering enterprise solutions for the firm while managing its global infrastructure, which includes several Linux servers (with a 1000-node compute grid and several hundred terabytes of storage). The role itself involves the design and implementation of robust UNIX infrastructure solutions, including performance analysis, monitoring, capacity planning, high availability, and disaster recovery.

On the operational front, this role includes the maintenance and support of production, test, and development environments. This role affords the opportunity to work with some of the most respected UNIX experts in the world in an intellectually stimulating and fast-paced environment.

The ideal candidate will have a degree in computer science from a top-tier institution and 4-6 years of hands-on experience, along with a proven track record of success in troubleshooting, performance tuning, and administering UNIX and storage systems. Proficiency in engineering mail systems, name servers, storage and backup systems, and production server infrastructure, along with extensive knowledge of UNIX, are essential. The position requires expert scripting ability, a strong sense of ownership and urgency, and excellent oral and written communication skills.
