* Develop infrastructure services to support the Crowdstrike engineering team’s pursuit of a full devops model.

* Work closely with Engineering and Customer Support to troubleshoot time-sensitive production issues, regardless of when they happen. 

* Keep petabytes of critical business data safe, secure, and available.

* Track record of making great decisions, particularly when it matters most

* Rock solid communication skills, verbal and written

* A combination of confidence and independence... with the prudence to know when to 
ask for help from the rest of the team

I'm having a blast at Crowdstrike and we're getting ready to build out a set of datacenters and boy-howdy, could we use some help!

We have two open positions in my group, and also need 2-3 contractors to help us for a few months to deploy a few data centers and turn up systems and networking.

The two open positions are:

1. Systems/DevOps/Automation Engineer to help us setup systems automation, reliability, scalability, and monitoring. Full Time Permanent - work anywhere.

2. Network Engineer to setup the WAN and public cloud integration with the data centers. Full Time Permanent - work anywhere.

Please send me a note w/ your resume or any questions, or refer me to any folks who might be interested.

If you're semi-retired or have free time and are looking for a fun project to work on for a few weeks or months, this could be a great contracting gig and if you like us maybe you'd want to work with us long term? We'd love to have help w/ data center implementation, circuit delivery, and general linux stuff. We're also looking at bringing on some junior folks, so if you know or can recommend any folks early in their careers, please send them to me!
