We're growing like crazy and looking for awesome people across the entire company, but in particular we want to add a few good MySQL DBAs to our team. I know there is a lot of competition out there for database experts, and for good reason. MySQL is used at so many companies, and as they grow from small startups to some of the largest in the world they all need experts to help grow their databases. Why choose Box? Our TechOps team is awesome. Our developers are great to work with. We're growing fast. There are many difficult things -- common pain points -- that we already handle well. The list of interesting, challenging problems we have yet to tackle is long. You'd be able to choose to work on what interests you most. Box is aiming to be the market leader in enterprise file sharing; it's an amazing opportunity to start here early and see the infrastructure grow to a massive scale and go from serving millions of users to hundreds of millions. You will make an impact on the world, and you won't have to wait long to see it happen. We already have the sales growth to push our infrastructure to the limit. Lets make it happen. What are we looking for? Our ideal candidate would be a senior level MySQL DBA. Do you enjoy pushing efficiency and QPS limits? Do you dive into stack traces, salivate over good GDB output and pour through the source code looking for bugs and optimizations? Do you love to automate tasks and build tools to do your work for you, then move on to more interesting challenges? But it's not only MySQL -- hBase experience would be a plus, or at least the desire to dive in and learn that as well. Here's a short sample of some of the things we're looking to accomplish:+ Perfecting our backup infrastructure to grow as our databases do.+ Optimizing our hardware profile to find the best balance of $$/performance+ Learning, analyzing and deploying features such as fake changes for replication boosting, flash cache and innodb compression+ Capacity planning+ Anticipating the release and upgrade to MySQL 5.6 and new features such as parallel replication, PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA, optimizer tracing, and global transaction ids+ Automating our HA to minimize the impact of hardware failures+ Growing our hBase cluster as it becomes a production critical system Contact me, or check out: https://www.box.com/about-us/careers/
