Cambridge, MA or REMOTE. Full-time.

The Ksplice group at Oracle

Does writing Python clones of your favorite childhood computer games sound like a fun weekend project? Would you hack on an old-school graphics demo that fits into a DOS MBR in your free time? Have you ever told a joke whose punch line was a git command? If that sounds like you, we want to hear from you!

About us

We are a small, tight-knit team of 12 women and men excited to work on technology that most people will tell you is impossible: updating an operating system kernel while it is running. Our product, Ksplice Uptrack, is a subscription service for Linux that provides completely non-disruptive, rebootless kernel updates. (You can read more about the underlying technology at http://www.ksplice.com/paper)

We're looking for a full-stack engineer with strong Python experience: Help us bring the Ksplice Uptrack client to new Linux distribution releases, improve our server infrastructure, and develop and extend our REST API and Django-based web interface.

If this technology excites you, let's talk! Feel free to direct questions to me at jamie.iles@oracle.com or to jobs@ksplice.com. Oracle is an equal opportunity employer.

I started with this team about a month ago and have been very impressed. I was quite concerned going from a two-person startup (that was, unfortunately, going nowhere) to a company with 110,000 employees, but this team is great. And the Cambridge office has an amazing view!
