My team at Stack Overflow is looking to hire SREs with Windows experience, particularly administration of Microsoft SqlServer.

If you are a system administration looking to move into more of an SRE position, this is an ideal opportunity.

Here's the job listing:

NOTE: While we are a remote-first team with team members all over the world, this position will have occasional datacenter work requirements, which means 1-hour travel time to our Jersey City, NJ datacenter is a requirement.

LISA this year is in Nashville, TN, Oct 29-31, 2018. The full schedule is up! Registration is open!

Three things you should know:

  1. This year Usenix LISA will be 3 days long, instead of the usual 7. This makes it easier to attend, and more focused. I think this is a really good direction for LISA.

  2. The schedule is awesome. I got super excited while reading the schedule. All the talks seemed to be much more focused and a greater emphasis on cutting edge topics and things I want to learn about but haven't had time to study.

  3. I have discount codes. The first five people that email me will get a 5 percent discount code. Send email to tal at whatexit dot org with the subject "DISCOUNT LISA". These are a special thank you to the readers of my blog.

  4. I'm speaking on Tuesday. (Bonus item). I'll be giving a new talk about reforming your operations team on Tuesday. Hope to see you in the audience!

Register soon!
