Hosted Graphite - Dublin, Ireland

We're looking for an ops and python automation engineer to help us work on scaling, reliability and automating ops tasks. We work with linux, python, riak, redis, serf, puppet, git and IRC.

We're a small team of 7 that is growing quickly and funded entirely by real customers who like us because we solve a real problem.

The Arrested Development reference in the footer makes me wonder if the name ought to be Annyong instead.

-----


Perhaps they named it for Annyong but changed it for the easier search results?

-----


What's the point if the user doesn't control the keys?

If the data and the keys are both with Amazon, is this anything other than a ticky box for the marketing dept?

-----


Agreed! I'm recommending it to anyone uncomfortable with the SMS/Hangouts merge.

-----


Seconding this, switched to TextSecure when they combined SMS and Hangouts. It is an excellent SMS app replacement. The crypto doesn't get in your way, even when almost none of your contacts also use it.

I'm finding voip.ms to be pretty good, no major issues in over a year of using them. It's a power user tool, so it's not quite as slick as Voice was.

I ported my old Voice number to voip.ms too.

-----


I've used Voip.ms as my primary phone service for years and it's been very reliable. Voip.ms is one of only two VoIP services that has a Gold Award at DSLReports:

I also have a Google Voice account, but the service is less reliable than Voip.ms, and I only use it to call a couple of family members who use Google Voice as their primary phone service.

I suggest that you apply to companies directly, with a cover letter tailored for each company/job, and avoid these generic CV-mangling systems.

-----


Yes, I strongly agree. You'd be better off applying directly.

A machine readable CV just makes it easier for someone to match keywords. Those matches are almost always terrible. I.e., I see you have the word "javascript" on your resume, perhaps you'd like this "java" job post.

-----


It would also be easier to just manually fill out those pages than to develop a PDF that can be auto-read by all of them.

But what's the fun in that?

-----


Everyone involved in that needs to read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crash-only_software and get comfortable with the idea of pulling that plug. It'll help in the long run.

If you're installing it on a laptop just to play with it, perhaps https://www.hostedgraphite.com might be useful. The 14 day trial means you can fool around and dump it for self-hosted at the end of it. :)

I was installing on a laptop to demo during a conference talk. I also had aspirations of contributing to graphite (something I've so far failed to do.) Having said that, I do know that hosting and maintaining graphite internally is a barrier for some companies. Your product looks like it will fill that need very nicely. Kudos!

-----


Thanks. Yes, for a demo or contributing doing it locally is a good idea. :) Nice set of instructions, it's a bit of a complex beast to install.

-----


Thanks. I wrote a simple Ruby script that will "replay" data as if the event were happening live. It's great for a demo because you can leave it up while your talking and known data is streaming in. And for me it's even better since I was demo-ing a monitoring tool and could have known alert occurring live. :)

http://www.hostedgraphite.com - exactly what it sounds like.

(For those who don't know what Graphite is, it's a popular open source tool for recording and graphing metrics, typically server and app performance stuff)
