emphasis on repeatability, testability and consistency. The demands on 
this system are increasing rapidly as we grow the userbase and add more

hardware architecture and understands how to tune database systems 
appropriately based on a particular architecture. You will be expected 
to come up to speed quickly on difficult problems, become a significant 
contributor to a hard-working team, and to take pride in your work.


You should have a deep understanding of database systems, systems 
programming, and the factors that affect distributed system performance. 
We have a strong preference for folks with PostgreSQL experience.
