We don't expect you to know everything already, but here are some of the skills we would like you to have or be nearly there with:

  • Comfortable with Linux CLI - BASH scripting, user management and control, sudo configuration.
  • Experience with configuration management tools - specifically Puppet and Puppet ENC mechanisms.
  • Deploying and monitoring PHP applications using PHP-FPM.
  • A passion for infrastructure as code and trying to automate everything, locating and eliminating manual steps wherever possible.
  • Extensive experience with continuous integration practices and tools, ideally both in a PHP ecosystem and for front-end (i.e. Selenium or similar) tests.
  • Setting up NGINX and configuring it at both a server and site level.
  • MySQL (MariaDB would be a bonus). You have administered setup, managed backups and configured replication slaves.
  • AWS. EC2 and IAM are essential but the more, the merrier. RDS would be a positive.
  • Provisioning and installing SSL certificates. If that's been with LetsEncrypt, even better.
  • Security. Familiarity with Fail2ban, iptables, SSH, LogWatch and CIS machine hardening.

There are some other areas that would be a real bonus and help push someone up that "dependent upon experience" scale:

  • Monitoring tool configuration and administration - Nagios, Nagios NRPE, DataDog.
  • DNS management and maintenance.
  • Web Performance. Both from a server perspective and on the front-end using RUM and synthetic tooling, ideally as part of a CI chain.
  • Virtualisation, ideally LXC.
  • Containerisation and all that brings.
  • Experience with configuration and optimisation of other parts of our stack: ElasticSearch, Redis, RabbitMQ.
  • PCI compliance.
  • Vulnerability scanning, ideally with Skipfish
