Why you want to join the Lulu Team
As a curious individual who wants to make the world a better place, you are keen to take on a challenging role at Lulu.com because we are doing the impossible – inventing an industry to help the world move knowledge from one generation to the next more efficiently and without barriers.
Lulu pioneered the knowledge-sharing economy by providing free publishing tools so that everyone, everywhere, can share their knowledge and tell their story. Using cutting edge technology, we produce high quality eBooks and print-on-demand products via sustainable sourcing and environmentally conscious manufacturing practices. Treating people right is fundamental to how we do business. We treat our customers as we’d want to be treated and we treat each other like family. We are Lulus. Our goals have always been the same: Have fun, do exceptional work, build the best product in the business, experiment, pay attention to the details, treat people right, tell the truth, have a positive impact on the world around us, give back, and keep learning. We do this one author, one idea, one book, one new software at a time. This is our story. What's yours?
Lulu Press is currently looking for a Senior Linux Systems Administrator to support Lulu Press's production environments. Our infrastructure has grown over the years to a very mature and stable platform. As it became increasingly difficult to enhance and evolve the existing platform, we started developing a new software platform two years ago based on microservice architecture. Now, the founding blocks have been laid and we can start transitioning to the new platform. Technical innovations, cloud-based services and new devops practices like CI/CD are opportunities for us to take our infrastructure to the next level.
You will work in our IT Ops team with a Sr. Systems Architect to ensure the data integrity, security, maintenance and continuous improvement of the Lulu infrastructure. This includes the physical servers, virtual servers, networks, and storage environment. Over time, you will have the opportunity to work on a variety of different projects together with our development teams to build new external and internal facing services for the company.
Nice to Have:
