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 
and volunteers.

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!
