  • build tools that help you in your everyday analysis,
  • share interesting findings with the community at large,
  • split your time 50/50 between proactive and reactive performance analysis.
Requirements
  • You have strong foundational knowledge of modern, distributed computing.
  • You have a proven track record of understanding the performance of large-scale services, quantitatively and in fine details.
  • Profilers, debuggers, tracers hide no secrets from you, especially in a linux environment.
  • You display persistence, focus and creativity to get to the bottom of the matter at issue.
  • You communicate well and your enthusiasm for the craft is contagious.
Bonus points
  • You have a strong background in statistics.
