*             Systems programming and scripting using these languages: python, ruby, bash
*             Great communicator: able to persuade development and systems group for using certain tools, methodology but not hard-headed at the same time and not argumentative.
*             Able to mentor other members of the team for Agile methodology and programming skills
*             Big plus if created/wrote tools in the past that is useful for systems-engineering/DevOps

*             Experience with high-performance, open source web technologies (jetty, nginx, haproxy)
*             Experience with high-availability technologies like NLB, CDN and caching layers (ETAGS, varnish, memcached, code caching)
*             Fluency in Java is a major plus
*             BS, MS, or PhD in Computer Science, MIS, or equivalent
