We are looking for an experienced Network Operations Engineer to join our Technical Operations team. Would you like to join the small, dynamic team that is responsible for the reliability and performance of a global top-10 website, Wikipedia? The Wikimedia Operations team has a very broad range of responsibilities, and could really use someone to expand its networking expertise.
We are looking for people with a drive to explore, experiment, and learn new technologies. Do you enjoy eliminating boring things from your daily workflow by automating them? Are you comfortable working in a highly collaborative, consensus-oriented, open environment and as part of a globally-distributed team? Then you might be just the person we need.
Our fully redundant network spans the continental United States and Europe, and will soon be expanding into Asia as well. Our AS 14907 and AS 43821 are currently located at 7 sites: 2 core data centers, 2 edge data centers, and 3 network PoPs, all connected to major local traffic hubs where possible. We have an open peering policy and currently peer with ~235 other ASNs (public and private peers combined).
About the Wikimedia Foundation
The Wikimedia Foundation is the non-profit organization that supports and hosts Wikipedia and its sister free knowledge sites. Wikipedia consists of nearly 40 million articles across hundreds of languages. Every month, more than 80,000 volunteer editors contribute to Wikipedia. Based in San Francisco, California, the Wikimedia Foundation is an audited, 501(c)(3) non-profit that is funded primarily through donations and grants. It currently employs over 240 staff members.
At the Foundation, we build technology to help people everywhere access Wikipedia, across devices and in nearly 300 languages. We engineer privacy for our readers and editors so they can safely and securely explore Wikipedia. We create programs and initiatives to make Wikipedia freely available to more people in more parts of the world. We build new tools for the community of editors so they can continue to improve and grow Wikipedia. Roughly a quarter of our budget goes to supporting the community that make the site possible, including through grantmaking programs that enable volunteers and enrich the information on the sites.
