Jobs at Kongregate
Kongregate is a browser based game site combining over 65,000 games with achievements, high scores, chat, profiles, payments, and other community features. Kongregate reaches 15 million players per month, who spend over 33 million hours on the site. We are a tight knit team of 40 people with a strong startup culture, and a very independent subsidiary of GameStop, the largest video game retailer in the world.
We practice iterative, test-driven development, work sustainable hours, and offer competitive compensation. We have very low turnover. We have offices in San Francisco and Portland, with engineering satellites in Denver and Providence.
Kongregate is a large-scale platform for web and mobile games. We don't have an sysadmin function currently - all systems work is done by the development team.

We currently have around 30 production servers.
Our technology stack is CentOS Linux, MySQL (percona build), Redis, memcached, Ruby 1.9.3, Rails 3, Scout, Redshift and New Relic. We automate all systems administration with Puppet, Kickstarter, and Rake. We don't expect you to have experience with all of these, as long as you are willing to jump in and able to learn quickly:
