Subject: opportunity: Sr. Systems Administrator at Quantcast (San Francisco, CA)

   Quantcast is looking to hire a Linux/UNIX expert with extensive WAN
   experience. As we're currently collecting data from over 8 million page
   views a day, across 10 million directly measured sites, this is a unique
   opportunity to work on one of the largest computing infrastructures in the
   world. The ideal candidate should be excited by working on a global scale,
   multi-locational WAN, in a start-up environment. Our highly skilled team
   is small and tight-knit, providing the ideal environment for someone
   looking to make a visible impact and contribute to Quantcast's success.

   Quantcast provides publishers, agencies and marketers unmatched abilities
   to measure, segment, and target audiences based upon inference models that
   couple machine learning with massive quantities of directly measured
   audience and reference data. This approach overcomes the challenges and
   limitations of traditional media measurement services that rely on panels
   and expands the limited delivery of retargeting approaches to reach a
   larger, more qualified audience.  We were recently named the #3 most
   innovative web company in 2010 by FastCompany, behind Facebook and Google,
   and we are roughly 80 employees.  We offer a full benefits package.  We
