We are amazed and thankful at the huge response we’ve gotten to SlideShare in just five days since launch, and need to hire developers and a sysadmin immediately to keep up with the enthusiasm. Positions available are for our team in New Delhi (the Uzanto team is a small, tightly-knit team of developers and designers in India & US).
We work with cutting edge technologies – Ruby on Rails, MySQL, and Amazon Web Services. We are looking for developers and a sys admins. Our setup consists of Ruby, Rails, MySQL, lighttpd/mongrel, Pound, FreeBSD, and Debian. We run our Rails apps on a 7-machine FreeBSD/Debian cluster (and Amazon S3).
Developer Position: You should be a proven web hacker who can help us get Slideshare to out of the Beta stage and beyond. Freshers OK: having an existing personal web project is a huge plus. Ruby or PHP experience is OK: we can teach you Ruby if you already “get” the web, PHP, CSS, MySql, etc. You MUST be a rock-star where web coding is concerned.
SysAdmin Position: You should have some experience managing open-source clusters. You must be comfortable setting up new servers, tweaking NFS configs, spotting bottlenecks, server surveillance, benchmarking Mongrels, etc. We need you to keep Slideshare working – dealing with any performance crunches, & daily problems that might slow down the site or cause other problems for users.
We also would like to talk to people with QA experience, and people who have experience managing and moderating online communities and content.
