We are a small group of grad students from multiple disciplines
(Human-Computer Interaction, Education, Biomedical engineering, CS) at
Stanford who have come together around a common project we believe has
a shot at positive impact for many people worldwide. We are looking
for a Wikimedia hacker to join our (non-profit) team. The right
person could easily do this project in their spare time.
If you are interested, please email neema(a)stanford.edu with your
project portfolio/descriptions, qualifications, and preferred meeting
Thanks for your time and have a great weekend,
So you want to run a top-10 web site? Now's your chance...
We're now hiring for a full-time system administrator to help monitor,
maintain, and document the 400+ Linux/Unix servers that operate
Wikipedia and its sister projects. This position will be based at our
San Francisco headquarters, but will work closely with our remote staff
Currently, system administration tasks are spread over our other tech
staff and volunteers, who have to split their time with software
development, data center management, and network planning. A full-time
system administrator will let us be more responsive to site issues when
they happen, and more importantly be more proactive about planning for
and averting problems before they affect the folks back home.
We've got operating systems to upgrade, configurations to document,
software installations to automate, and a lot of service data that needs
to be monitored and digested... if you think you've got the chops for
it, send us your CV by the end of January!
