Linden Lab Production Operations has open positions for Production Operations developers and systems engineers in Australia, Singapore, the United States, and United Kingdom. The Production Operations team is responsible for ensuring that the Second Life grid, the world’s largest collaborative real-time development environment, is up and running.
Linden Lab Operations is a Debian Linux shop. We rely extensively on OSS, and our in-house systems are usually written in Python or PHP. Our team is made up of folks who have been involved in large-scale grid management and site operations for years.
We’re looking for people who can rapidly pinpoint and diagnose network failures, deployment issues, and performance bottlenecks, who can also create tools which will improve grid stability. Production Operations works extensively with the Concierge, System Engineering, Governance, I-world, and Development teams to triage and respond to grid problems; therefore, the ability to communicate effectively with techies and non-techies is critical. The successful candidate will have substantial *nix experience and script-fu, familiarity in managing large system installations, and no fear of complex, dynamic systems.
