SO (my employer) is hiring a Windows SRE/sysadmin in NY/NJ

Come work with Stack Overflow's SRE team!

We're looking for a Windows system administrator / SRE to join our SRE team at Stack Overflow. (The downside is that I'll be your manager... ha ha ha). Anyway... the full job description is here:

A quick and unofficial FAQ:

Q: NYC/NJ? I thought Stack was an "remote first" company! Whudup with that?

A: While most of the SRE team works remotely, we like to have a few team members near each of our datacenters (Jersey City, NJ and Denver, CO). You won't be spending hours each week pulling cables, I promise you. In fact, we use remote KVMs, and a "remote hands" service for most things. Heck, a lot of our new products are running in "the cloud" (and probably more over time). That said, it's good to have 1-2 people within easy travel distance of the datacenters for emergencies.

Q: Can I work from home?

A: Absolutely. You can work from home (we'll ship you a nice desk, chair and other great stuff) or you can work from our NYC office (see the job advert for a list of perks). Either way, you will need to be able to get to the Jersey City, NJ data center in a reasonable amount of time (like... an hour).

Q: Wait... Windows?

A: Yup. We're a mixed Windows and Linux environment. We're doing a lot of cutting edge stuff with Windows. We were early adopters of PowerShell (if you love PowerShell, definitely apply!) and DSC and a number of other technologies. Microsoft's containers is starting to look good too (hint, hint).

Q: You mentioned another datacenter in Denver, CO. What if I live near there?

A: This position is designated as "NY/NJ". However, watch this space. Or, if you are impatient, contact me and I'll loop you in.

Q: Where do I get more info? How do I apply?
