Timetric are looking for a devops engineer to manage and grow our data mining and visualization platforms. You'll need to have used Chef, Puppet, or a similar system.
You'll be comfortable working in heterogenous systems, and very focussed on making things work. Although you'll mostly be working with our data mining product, built in Java, you'll be just as happy stringing bash scripts together, or integrating with our Python/Django visualization stack.
You’ll be joining a small team: there’s not a lot of process overhead. We don’t expect you to know everything you need to do before you start, but you'll learn fast.
* Chef/Puppet or equivalent
* Java experience
* Good working knowledge of Linux
* Used to working with git (or mercurial, or bzr)
Bonus points for any of:
* Interest in data visualization
* Numerical/scientific/mathematical background
* Understanding of AI/ML techniques
* Interest in economics
Timetric is a company with a vision. We want to give the world better tools for understanding data.
Our visualizations appear on high traffic media sites like the Guardian (http://guardian.co.uk/news/datablog/interactive/2012/may/22/inflation-cpi-rpi-interactive) and we're trusted by experts like the Royal Statistical Society. Work we do here is highly visible where it matters.
We like to share what we're doing technically as well – we've made key parts of our software open source, like our in-browser vector graphing library (http://github.com/timetric/raphlot), or our Solr/Python library, (http://github.com/tow/sunburnt).
And we like to talk about it – we regularly participate in the London developer community, and we've hosted several meetups. We encourage everyone to maintain a public profile and be open about their work - it's good for you and it's good for us!
