Join the BitNami Team!

If you are reading this post, you are probably already familiar with BitNami. We provide a library of free, ready to run open source applications that you can run locally or in the cloud. Our stacks have helped literally millions of developers and end users worldwide, from Fortune 500 companies to universities, governments and two-people teams building video games.

We are growing and we are looking for talented, passionate individuals to join our support team.

What your job will look like: You will be responsible for helping BitNami users get started with our apps and work with them to solve any setup and configuration issues they run into.

What we are looking for: Smart, inquisitive minds that have fun solving technical problems and genuinely enjoy helping others.

You should have outstanding communication skills and be comfortable setting up and configuring web-based applications in Linux/Unix. Some of the apps and frameworks we package include Joomla!, Drupal, WordPress, Redmine, Ruby on Rails and Django. You do not need to be an expert on all of them (or at least not at the beginning!) but you need to be proficient enough to help others and learn the technologies you are not familiar with quickly.

Having fun in Sierra Nevada!
We are headquartered in the US, but most of our development team is in Seville, Spain and Krakow, Poland. Ideally you would be located in one of these cities but we will also consider a remote position for the right candidate. You will need to be available to travel a couple of times a year for our company get-togethers (the latest ones involved snowboarding in the Spanish Sierra Nevada and four wheeling on the island of Tenerife, so the travel is not too bad :)

Ready to join the BitNami team? Send us your CV to careers@bitnami.org together with a brief cover letter telling us why you would like to join our team and sharing one example of a complex technical problem you solved and how you went about it.
