Join the BitNami Team! - We're Looking for a Sysadmin

Sysadmin? Love BitNami and the cloud?  Join our team and help build the future of application deployment in the cloud! 

As you may know, BitNami is the top provider of cloud application images for the Amazon Web Services Cloud, Windows Azure and the VMWare marketplace, with over 1 million new installations of our software every month. We are a Y-Combinator funded start up with offices in San Francisco and Europe. We are looking for a couple of top-notch system administrator to join our team.

You must have a solid understanding of Linux/UNIX, including performance tuning, high availability, security and TCP/IP networking. You should also be fluent in at least one major scripting language such as Python or Ruby. You should be as obsessed as we are with automation (i.e. Chef, Puppet) and excited to be working with the latest cloud technologies (we often work hand in hand with cloud vendors before they release major functionality). You have experience maintaining and scaling production systems and are intimately familiar with MySQL, Apache, NGINX, Rails, Django and other common open source servers and development frameworks.

We are looking with a candidate with Ms. Sc. in Computer Engineering but are aware that the best candidates sometimes come from different backgrounds. We are more interested in deep, demonstrable knowledge than in any specific degrees or certifications. 

You will be joining a growing, profitable startup and a great team of smart, hard-working developers. Our main engineering team is in Spain so ideally you are already living there or are willing to relocate to sunny Spain :)   We will also consider working remotely, but you may have to travel a couple of times a year to meet with the rest of the team.

If you are located in Spain, please apply through our InfoJobs offer (please indicate you read about it in our blog). If you are currently located abroad, email us your CV directly to with a brief explanation of why you love BitNami, what you think you can bring to our team and links to open source projects you have created or contributed to (if any.)
