OmniTI is well known for taking on large scale, mission critical problems. Our teams work within a wide variety of projects, solving existing problems and enabling new business objectives for our clients, empowered to use (or build) tools that ensure security and scalability. We also believe that great technology experts are also software generalists; able to build your own environments, and unafraid to jump up and down the stack to solve the problems that come our way.

About The Job:
At OmniTI, we have always been fans of using great tools and technology to accomplish the technical goals before us. When those tools didn't exist, we would either extend existing tools or invent new ones that would. Over the past 15 years, we've established a track record as a world class engineering consultancy, with a proven history of working within various Open Source communities. It is with this mindset that we are launching a new open source project to help improve the state of systems management, bringing some of the best technologies together to help make these systems easier and more stable to run.

As a Linux Kernel Engineer, you'll primarily work with this team to help bootstrap a custom Linux distribution that will work alongside a set of purposefully designed management services. You'll work with a wide mix of different technologists, helping to create this new ecosystem.

Requirements & Education:
Expert knowledge of Linux 2.6/3.x kernel.
Understanding of how to develop operable software for testing.
Familiar with automated build tools and continuous delivery.
Ability to play nicely with others and work independently.
Intelligence with a sense of humor.

Experience developing services with Linux cgroups and namespaces.
Knowledge of virtualization technologies (KVM, LXC, Docker, Open VZ, Zones).
Knowledge of file system development, particularly ZFS.
Experience developing Open Source code, in public (github, sourceforge).

About You:
You have the heart of a teacher.
You've likely worked with a variety of languages in your career.
You love monitoring and trending, and like to bake that into your software.
Confident enough in the work you do to give a Sys Admin your cell phone number.
