Hi there, 

Want to work with a group of smart, fun people and LOL at the office?
We are a 2 year old, cash flow positive social gaming / Facebook App 
company.  We have about 40 people now and plan to get to 60-70 in the 
next 6 to 12 months.  We are a big Python/Pylons shop building high 
quality Flash games.  You can find out how we scaled from 0 to 50 
million users from this video at the last PyCon. 
http://us.pycon.org/2010/conference/schedule/event/135/  :) 

We're looking for a seasoned performance engineer to do more of that.  

More details here: 

Python Server/Scalability Engineer 

You know the thrill and the terror of an unexpected traffic storm that's 
railed your application.  You think on your feet, adapt and make a genius 
patch that let's your servers hold to see out the storm, then hit the whiteboard 
to start architecting a solution that will handle the next storm with ease.

Ideally, you: 
* Love python and can code it in your sleep. 
* Working knowledge of Linux, scripting, and SQL. 
* Understand when MySQL is great and experiment with NoSQL solutions 
* Know how to put together a web-application stack. (We use Pylons/ 
* Enjoy bouncing ideas of your teammates to build up solutions no one 
person could of thought up by themselves. 
* Care about your implementations and find yourself compulsively 
checking that your latest experimental deploy is working the way you 
thought it would. 

You'll get to: 

* Work in an innovative space that is expanding into a billion dollar 
* Design and implement large chunks of scalability features. 
* Help make key infrastructure decisions (databases, replication 
layouts, caching solutions, etc.). 
* Experiment with the newest emerging open-source technologies. 
* Test your ideas and strategies out on millions of users and enormous 
data sets. 
* Head up a small team of experienced engineers (if you are willing 
and able). 
* Have fun.  Play ping pong, foosball, video games. 
* Eat. We buy your lunches.
