ScaleDB is Hiring a Senior Software Engineer for DBMS Kernel

ScaleDB extends MySQL for high-velocity high-volume data, enabling near real-time analytics across massive streams of data. Like Hadoop, ScaleDB leverages a cluster of commodity machines with low-cost spinning disks for storage, mitigating the typical trade-offs between data fidelity and the volume of data and time analyzed. NoSQL and Hadoop are excellent choices for unstructured data, or data variety challenges. However, if your data is structured time-series data, and generated at high-velocity and high-volume, ScaleDB is the tool for you. On a nine-node cluster, ScaleDB inserts millions of rows per second and queries up to 1000 times faster, more than enough speed for today’s most demanding applications.

ResponsibilitiesLooking for C/C++ experience, ideally with experience with database server internals. You will design and implement a next generation database storage engine. You will have ownership for one or more modules of the …

How to hire for Infrastructure Operations Engineers

I have been working for a very large Australian website for over six years and during this period have been fortunate enough to hire many Infrastructure Operations Engineers that now work for that company. I want to detail the evolution of the hiring process and what I have driven it to over the last six years.
How was I hiredThis is the interview process I went through at my current company:

  • A technical and cultural pre-screening from a recruiter
  • A short phone interview with a small set of adhoc questions around technical skill set. How does DNS work?
  • An hour long face to face interview with the hiring manager and another senior engineer testing both technical capability and culture fit
  • Another hour long face to face interview with a HR representative testing cultural fit 
  • Lastly, a reference check to confirm technical capability and cultural fit performed over …

On the road again - FOSSAsia

On the road again - FOSSAsia

It has been a few busy months until now. I have moved from Italy to Thailand, and the move has been my first priority, keeping me from attending FOSDEM and interacting with social media. Now I start catching my breath, and looking around for new events to attend. But before I get into this, let’s make a few things clear:

  • I am still working for Continuent. Actually, it’s because of my company flexibility that I could move to a different country (a different continent, 6 time zones away) without much trouble. Thanks, Continuent! (BTW: Continuent is hiring! )
  • I am still involved with MySQL activities, events, and community matters. I just happen to be in a different time zone, where direct talk with people in Europe and …

Looking to Hire a MySQL DBA or Developer?

“Why can’t I find an MySQL DBAs or Developers?” This morning I got a message from a very perplexed Human Resources person on why their ads on Linkedin were not getting any results. Several such emails, calls, or messages make it to me each week and I would like take this opportunity to cover this subject. MySQL DBAs and Developers are out there but there are reasons why they are not interested in your job posting.

1. Provide details — “Exciting new position in rapidly growing start up in an expensive city and we want you to know how to program in every programming language, be a recent university graduate (hopefully PhD or higher), with ten years of experience but please be under twenty three years of age. Must prefer stock options and left over pizza crusts over a regular salary. And be flexible.” No, most ads are not quite that bad but several are very, very close.

Why I don't work with recruiters, but I learn from them

Join 11,000 others and follow Sean Hull on twitter @hullsean.

Bring me clients, please… pretty please!

When you first start out as a freelancer, your network is small. Without a steady stream of projects, the tendency is to reach for whatever you can find. Head shops & agencies build a brand, and ongoing relationships with firms. However a project with a middleman is a relationship with him or her, not the client directly. You lose control of a few very key things, such as fees, testimonials and payment terms.

Hiring: Perl programmer, PHP programmer, UI/UX consultant

I don’t get to say this often, but “I’m hiring” (at Percona):

I’ve been with Percona for about 5 years, so I can tell you: it’s probably the best company to work at: great pay, great benefits, great people, and truly driven by a desire to do right by customers and do good work.  What more can you ask for?  Of course, all these jobs are MySQL-related: Perl + MySQL, PHP + MySQL–maybe the UI/UX job less so, but still close enough.
