Do you need a well rounded production oriented experienced unix system administrator? One who can both work with the big picture, and dive into tasks that are new and unique? One whose principal interest is your customer base?

I am a distinguished architect at Yahoo, in Operations. I provide consultation on wide scale initiatives within Yahoo, that will ultimately directly or indirectly impact every property within the company. IPv6 is my primary focus. Additionally, I work within the network group, helping them imagine ways to improve their roles, and implementing those ideas. Examples would be building of configuration management and auditing systems, to improve engineer efficiency and reduce downtime. I have been in this role since 2007.

I have had 8 years of being a Production Engineer for Yahoo, Inc; maintaining a demanding 24x7 production environment for the Inktomi Search Engine. That role is responsible for all aspects of production from when the hardware is turned over to us, to the customer facing experience. We provide the OS, the OS install environment, application management, data management, performance metrics, and all the glue in between. This includes networking, redundancy, failover, and BCP. We consult with developer groups to ensure that scalability, stability, and security goals are met. We balance change management with flexibility and customer risk/benefit. Everything is our domain except for the actual search engine and crawling software.

I also have 3 years experience as the lead admin of a regional internet service provider. I was responsible for the network (Both ISP side and customer premise side), remote access for users, all ISP related unix hosted services, and some CGI development for key customers. I still do ISP work on a limited contract basis.
