Are you:

networking guru, and code slinger all rolled into one? 

*	...looking for the next cool problem to solve, in a fast-paced and
engineering-driven environment? 

*	...into writing scripts which perform practically the entire job you
once held earlier in your career? 

*	...entertained in your off hours by taking things apart just to see
how they work? Are you successful putting them back together when you're

*	...excited by the idea of making Google even faster, more reliable,
more available, more - well, Googly?

If you answered "Yes" to more than three of the above questions, you may be
our kind of System Admin! Keep reading.

site. From design issues to troubleshooting, from performance analysis to

Google.com engineers are ultimately responsible for making sure that Google
always works. We take that responsibility very very seriously, but if you
think you've got what it takes then we're eager to talk with you.

and capacity analysis, service configuration, monitoring and
troubleshooting, and change management. 
*	Strong understanding of IP networking, including familiarity with
the functionality, operating, and failure modes of common networking
devices, and the ability to analyze network behavior, performance and
application issues using standard tools like tcpdump. 


*	BA/BS in Computer Science or related field, or equivalent
*	3 - 5 years experience with UNIX systems administration (5-15 years
for Senior position). 
*	Solid scripting skills in Shell, PHP, Perl or Python. 
*	Proven technical troubleshooting and performance tuning experience. 
*	Experience in a high-volume or critical production service
*	Ability to handle periodic on-call duty as well as out-of-band
*	Tack-sharp analytical abilities. 
*	A strong sense of ownership, urgency, and drive. 
*	Fluent written communication and unusual verbal agility are strong
*	SQL experience a plus, MySQL a plus. 
*	Experience leading short projects involving outside teams is a plus.

or PDF format directly to Patricia Alvarez: palvarez@google.com.
