Wanted: kick-ass sysadmin


The position has been filled. Thanks to all who applied.

A quick note: we’re currently hiring a sysadmin to join us here at World Online. The complete job details are behind that link, so I’ll just point a few of the coolest aspects of the job:

  • We’ve got of the coolest and smartest teams around. There’s an awesome group of people here: Jeff, James, Nathan, and Matt are the ones who are geeky enough to have blogs, but the rest of the team is equally cool. We have a hell of a good time every day.
  • We’re planning some awesome things in the hosted-services arena, so one of the first things you’d get to do would be to buy a whole truckload of hardware and build a new server room.
  • You get to live in Lawrence. I know, most people don’t think living in Kansas is a perk, but trust me — Lawrence is outstanding. In the next month or the North Mississippi All Stars, Calexico, Art Brut, David Sedaris, Ani Difranco, Victor Wooten, and Spearhead all are coming to town.

So, if you’ve got the skills, read the complete posting and then drop me a line. We’re super-pumped about hiring an admin, and we can’t wait to find the right person.
