Hey all!

The rad org I currently work with is looking for a DevOps engineer to
assist with monitoring and maintenance of our network infrastructure:

eQualitie is seeking an experienced networking software engineer for
DevOps and infrastructure automation duties. We’re looking for someone
who knows how to build and manage cloud services with an emphasis on
FOSS solutions that we run _in-house_ <https://github.com/equalitie/>.
Our new colleague shares the company’s _values_
<https://equalit.ie/values/> and is ready to play an important role in
protecting freedom of expression and association on the Internet. In
turn, you will get exposure to and a say in the design of current and
future _defensive _ <https://deflect.ca/solutions/>_web
<https://deflect.ca/solutions/> technologies_ and _decentralized
solutions_ <https://github.com/censorship-no> for avoiding Internet
censorship, as well as personal satisfaction that your contributions
create real change for people around the world.

*Job Description*

You will work across tight-knit project teams and interface between
software developers and systems operations. Your primary
responsibilities will include building and tuning tools to improve
network availability, service performance and censorship resilience. You
will introduce common systems and processes for a variety of in-house
technologies, spanning DDoS mitigation, a clearinghouse for anomalous
network behaviour and a decentralized peer-to-peer web caching network.
You will take an “automate everything” approach, introducing and
improving automation, orchestration and monitoring tooling across the board.

*About you*

You love dashboards and hate network latency. You understand the
building blocks of the Internet and are familiar with its core
protocols. You value infrastructure-as-code systems and believe in
prototyping, fine-tuning software configurations and performance
monitoring as the primary ways to improve an Internet- reliant product
or service. You have a depth of knowledge, experience and a passion for
Internet technologies that allow you to learn new systems relatively
quickly. Also, you should have:

  * Excellent Linux administration skills, performance- tuning and
    server hardening;
  * Demonstrable experience deploying and managing technology using
    Docker and/or Kubernetes;
  * Experience with data engineering, analysis, visualization of web
    traffic and network statistics (e.g. Kibana, Grafana, Icinga,
    Prometheus, etc);
  * Experience in network programming (HTTP, TCP/IP, UDP) with knowledge
    of peer-to-peer (BitTorrent) technologies a strong asset;
  * Familiarity with coding in Python (with Go and/or C++ experience a
    strong asset);
  * An active appreciation for reading and writing documentation!

*Now, a little bit about us…*

principles before profits. This is a relatively fast-paced environment
with a strong sense of individual contribution. We solve complex
technical problems for improving digital defences, introducing privacy
