Help Wanted: Senior Network Engineer

Here's another help wanted ad that's going out next week. If you or anyone you know fits the bill, have them drop us a line at jobs-ops@blekko.com.
Help wanted: Senior Network Engineer

Blekko is a stealth search engine created by the founders of the Open Directory (DMOZ) and the news search engine Topix. In addition to needing a new name (we’re working on it), we need to add a top-notch network engineer to the team.

OK, first the standard stuff:

The ideal candidate will be a programming-adept network engineer to grow with our operations team. You should also have:

* Admin experience with Linux/Unix

* Programming and admin experience with network protocols

* Perl fluency

* Ability to work both in a team and as an individual

Responsibilities of the job will range from helping us architect our data centers, to working on day-to-day system stability and troubleshooting. A large fraction of your job will involve programming.

Now the good stuff:

We think this is a particularly interesting opportunity for the right person for a bunch of reasons:

• Blekko is a search engine – a more infrastructure-intensive industry does not exist. We’re not talking about managing a small cluster of 10 machines here – there’s a BIG Linux cluster involved (plus Linux desktops and Mac laptops).

• We’re a start-up, so you’d be part of a small team. Combine a small team and big cluster – yeah, it’s a pretty meaty job.

• Compensation: we’re well funded and we pay market rates, which includes both an option component and a generous benefits package.

• Cool co-workers: and we’re not just talking about the founders:
